A lawyer for life!
When John Zaryck takes you on as a client you have a lawyer for life! John helped me avoid a possible confrontation with an angry and violent neighbor. I call John when ever I encounter a "grey area" and I want to avoid any possible legal difficulties before they happen. John is indeed a gentleman who subscribes to the highest moral values. He is a man of faith who respects all races can creeds. Over the years I have learned that John is active in supporting many of the service and charitable organizations of his community. I believe that his military experience provides him special insights when helping veterans. I am grateful to John for helping me with my life! Mel

John J Zarych Best Lawyer
Absolutely an outstanding lawyer. I couldn’t have asked for any better representation. John J Zarych and associates were very reassuring and comforting from the beginning to the end. For a first time offense, I was scared out of my mind, I spoke to John J Zarych and from the initial meeting with him, he went more in depth than anyone I’d spoken to, he made sure I was in understanding of the entire process. He went above and beyond in court, and he managed to get my charge dismissed. better than expected. John J Zarych and Associates will definitely be saved for future reference to anyone I come across needing his services. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Exceeded all expectations
John and his team showed as much care and concern before I hired him as they did once we made it official. As a parent I wanted the best counsel for my daughter and this incident could have derailed her promising future. John and his team worked closely with us and discussed the best path to address her legal issue. They put in the extra effort and it paid off with the best possible outcome. The initial stress felt by the whole family was off the charts but was immediately diffused when we knew that we had John and his team on our side. Thank you John and Staff!

Excellent Lawyer and Practice
I whole-heartedly recommend the services of John Zarych and and the Law Offices of John J. Zarych. John did an excellent job of defending my son after he was arrested in southern New Jersey just before he was to begin his senior year in college. The legal counsel provided by John resulted in an outcome that will allow my son to pursue his promising career interests. John provided valuable insight and advice on the merits of the case and also had a keen understanding of the workings of the county’s system of jurisprudence. John always replied to phone calls from my son and me promptly and his staff is very professional, supportive and helpful. As importantly, John provided counsel beyond legal that my son has used to respond positively to this situation. John has demonstrated to me that he indeed cares about the welfare of his clients in a way that exceeded my expectations.

Exceptional Performance
John Zarych Office are exceptional at what they do. They provide a sense of security after you discuss your situation with them. I was about to enter the workforce with a felony under my record, but after several months of work, the felony had dropped. From steps A to Z, they provided the necessary guidance and communication to keep me updated. There is nothing negative I could say to the John Zarych Office and I appreciate everything they have done for me and my future.

Patient, Experienced, and Honest
The Law Offices of John Zarych recently represented me during a complicated work matter that could have put my livelihood at risk if not handled properly. They advised me of my rights and personal liability with respect to the ethics violations of my employer. They knew instantly what to do and from the very beginning I felt complete confidence in them. Would highly recommend to anyone who does not know where to turn with a legal matter, particularly those seeking compassion and understanding along with legal help. These things were very important to me and I knew instantly I had come to the right place.

Excellent firm
I can highly recommend the Law Offices of John Zarych. I engaged them to assist a family member in some legal trouble and they came through for us. Also, I had a significant traffic matter that was a misunderstanding. In court they were able to get it everything dismissed. Attorneys John Zarych and Stefanie Zarych made me feel comfortable, relaxed and confident. I know they had my best interests at heart. Therefore, I strongly recommend them to other people with serious criminal or traffic problems.

From the bottom of my heart I can’t thank you enough
bout four months ago my son found himself in a very dangerous situation. We called your firm because we honestly did not know what to do. We were confused and scared. Thanks to your expertise you were able to guide us through what could have been the end of my son’s life if he was prosecuted. You didn’t make us feel judged or deviant. You were also very mindful of the family who was charging my son with crime. I want to thank you so much for impacting my son’s life in such a positive, meaningful way. I know he felt very comfortable with you and will heed your advice. The professionalism and kindness of your attorneys and staff will never be forgotten. From the bottom of my heart I can’t thank you enough for how you helped my son get through his worst nightmare. May God bless you and your staff for all you do!

The Miracle Lawyer
One Crazy night in Atlantic City almost changed my life and if it wasn’t for God’s Grace being vesseled through the Incredible John Zarych I would be probable be looking forward to my family visiting me every weekend. Having a felony moons ago but since getting my back on track the free drinks in Atlantic City brought me right back to that mentality of taking what did not belong me. While the cameras watched I proceeded to put my hands in the Cookie Jar (Apparently a poorly locked Black Jack table) and make off with almost 7K of chips, needless to say being as though I checked in under my name I had a phone call from the Police and the worst Hangover of my life in the morning. I somehow found John and he first and foremost showed Concern after I explained I was wasted out of my mind and encouraged me to get help while he worked on my case, that encouragement has helped my life immensely. Now what you want to hear John has been in the game for over 30 years he knows his stuff and the court knows he knows his stuff. He is hands down the best attorney you can get. I had a felony even though it was 15 years ago PTI was a long shot and most Attorneys wouldn’t haven’t even shot for it. John was able to get me 6 months PTI 20 hours of community service and $125 fine(sounds too good to be true but these are 100% facts). I only stepped in court one time and at the end of the 6 months my case was dismissed. John Thank you so much forever grateful .. JF

Family man in need of help.
I was prayerfully in search of a God loving, God fearing, SMART attorney. I was directed (by the Lord) to the Law Offices of John J. Zarych. Mr. Zarych, Mr. Shur and staff, professional handled my family court matters. John laid out and executed my TRA situation calmly and brilliantly. He has proven himself to me to be worthy of retention for any legal matters.

Grateful father of a high school senior
We were completely blindsided by an accusation against our son, who is a high school senior. Needless to say we were completely upset and confused as to what to do. Not handled correctly could have been detrimental to our son for the rest of his life. By the grace of God we came upon John Zarych's Law Office. John's instruction, advise, guidance, and support were invaluable to us, in addressing this most horrific and heartbreaking situation. His professionalism and attention, as well as , his overall handling of the matter resulted in a dismissal of the accusation. We are most appreciative of not only John's expertise as an attorney, but his devotion and concerned for his client's best interest. John is a person with high morals and values, and can be trusted explicitly. We would recommend The Law Offices of John Zarych to anyone looking for an outstanding attorney.

Mr. Zarych did what he said he was going to do.
Mr. Zarych and his firm defended my wife in a case where she was involved in a traffic accident. The other person involved was sited by the police. In an attempt to have the charges against him dropped, he made threats to my wife and he filed false charges against her. This really upset my wife. When we met with Mr. Zarych after what was an on going traumatic experience, he assured us of an extremely aggressive and through defense. Through out this experience we were provided with great support and kept informed of all developments regularly. We truly were provided with a very aggressive and through defense. The out come was that all the false charges against my wife were dropped. The man who crashed into my wife was found guilty of all charges. Mr. Zarych did what he said he was going to do and we are very grateful for the efforts of Mr. Zarych and his firm who went above and beyond.
