My son was falsely accused of several felony offenses. We originally hired Zack's partner, Matt Galluzzo. Throughout the process of meeting with Matt, it was apparent that Zack had much to add to my son's defense. He was hired as second chair and proved to be an invaluable asset. Zack has an extraordinary attention to detail. He is super sharp, nice, and genuinely cares. This shows in his performance. This guy breaks all the negative stereotypes of lawyers. He's a genuinely good guy and a great lawyer. He will do his best for you and will not take advantage of you. He and Matt won a full acquittal for my son. I will always be grateful for their hard work.

Zach sat second chair at my criminal trial in Kings County Supreme Court. I was facing 9 charges, with a realistic possible sentence of 5-10 years in prison. He was a crucial part of my full acquittal of all charges.
He is smart, confident, and fluent with the law, both precedent and procedure. When he had opportunity to speak, in arguing motions, and making objections, he was articulate, forceful, and thorough.
I am very glad he was in my corner all throughout the 2 years it took to prepare and litigate this case to such a successful conclusion.
Worth every penny, and I couldn't recommend him any more highly. He truly did help to save my life.

Zachary took care of a summons I received for a turnstile ticket that mandated I appear in court. Professional from beginning to end, he was informative and handled the matter efficiently with patience and courtesy.

I first found out about Zack's law firm through his blog. I was charged with a misdemeanor and was in a desperate position to find an attorney who was experienced with this matter.
Because I am a student, I could not commit to anything right away, but he gave me very comprehensive consultations through a phone call and through a meeting. After that, I knew that I could trust him.
Even though I had to change my schedule a few times, he was very understanding and was willing to accommodate my needs. Unlike other attorneys who were just trying to make this issue seem much more serious that it is, it gave me very objective views about the matter. After all, he has a lot of experiences with this kind of charges.
You will not be disappointed if you decide to work with Zack. I met many other attorneys during this process but I CAN ASSURE YOU that he was not only competent but also THE MOST RESPONSIBLE, UNDERSTANDING, AND CARING attorney.
I can't thank him enough for his service.

April 2015 my husband walked out on our marriage without a clear explanation. Seven days later he lost his new apartment and returned to my apartment with not only things but also his lovers. As I attempted to remove their luggage, my husband grabbed my arm. Instead of fighting back, I yelled out, "Help, get these crazy people out of my life." Startled, my husband runs out of the apartment to his lover who instructs my husband to call the police and report that I threaten his life with a knife. The police arrested me leaving my apartment open. During my night in jail, they removed their luggage and took $900 and other personal valuables.
As a result of my arrest, I was charged with Menacing a serious crime carrying a punishment of 1-2 years in jail. Any criminal record would end my career as a corporate auditor. After on-line research, I found Zachary Johnson and hired him for my defense mainly because of his background with the district attorney(DA). Zach saw my distress and calmed by down. I found him to be personable, sharp and highly familiar with the applicable law and the legal system. After hearing my story, he arranged an unofficial meeting with the prosecutor's office. Zach assured me that if the prosecutor heard my story that would be the end of my case. October 2015, my case was dropped without going to trail.
Zach’s legal fees are pricey but with all that I had at risk, I decided this is not the time to look for a bargain. He was always responsive by email or phone to questions. He provided continues updates on the status of my case, and he predicted every legal move. He provided me a sense of comfort throughout the process and got fast results.

Zach is a very good New York lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone with New York legal matters. He was very professional and kept me in the loop at all times. My girlfriend was facing some serious time and he was able to get her probation due to his legal knowledge and experience. I rate him 5 stars. I would use him again.

Mr. Zachary Johnson is an outstanding professional who advised me regarding an issue with my college. Zack accompanied me to my school's hearing and successfully helped me prove my innocence.
Throughout the process, Zack was always available and guided me through every step of the way. Zack's writing was always of prime quality, an indication of his years of experience constructing legal arguments. In addition, Zack not only did the legal work, but also explained to me the legal intricacies and case law that were relevant to my situation.
I am highly grateful to have found Mr. Zachary Johnson and will definitely work with him again if I am ever in need of an attorney.

I’m not very knowledgeable in the legal system and Zachary made sure I felt comfortable and knew exactly what was going on during every step of the process. He responded almost instantly to any questions, emails, and was always available to talk. I highly recommend having someone who fights this hard for you in your corner.

Attorney Zack Johnson of the Law Firm Galluzzo & Johnson is a serious top notch Defense Lawyer. One of the main reasons I hired him was his previous experience and years spent working in the Manhattan D.A.'s office which clearly provides him with the unique knowledge and experience that can only be obtained from having worked both sides of the Legal spectrum. Zack Johnson's personal experience as a former Manhattan Prosecutor combined with his actual personal knowledge of some of the Judges and Prosecutors gives him the ability to guide and advise his clients in ways that many less experienced Defense Attorney's simply are unable to provide for a lack of experience of how the system works inside and out. Specifically, Mr. Johnson had my case successfully reduced from what could have been either a Criminal Felony and/or Misdemeanor charge resulting in a Criminal record to a simple Disorderly Conduct charge amounting to essentially no more than a serious traffic violation. Additionally he was able to achieve this in only one Court appearance instead of having to return the sometimes traditional two or three times to Court. Obviously not having to appear in Court more than necessary is always a good thing, but this was also beneficial because less appearances in Court means less Attorney hours to bill...in this regard Mr. Johnson was more than fair. He IS NOT one of those types of Attorney's that always seem to drag everything out in the hopes of being able to bill you for more hours. His rates/fees were extremely reasonable for the level of expertise and service provided. In closing I would just like to say that I highly recommend Attorney Zack Johnson to anyone who needs sound, fair, intelligent and accurate legal representation...but most of all I would have to say the number one reason is results...Zack Johnson achieves favorable results and rulings for his Clients...and in the end...that is really all that matters. Thank You Zack.

I retained Mr. Johnson to handle a criminal matter in Manhattan after speaking to him over the phone. Although I was in California and could not be in New York, Mr. Johnson handled everything and gave me constant updates and answered all my questions. Could not be happier with the outcome and I would not hesitate to retain Mr. Johnson and his partner (Mr. Galluzzo) in the future.
