My father needed an attorney for a reckless driving charge he received while in a single car accident. Mr. Zinicola was straight forward with possible outcomes. He was hired and the charge was dropped in court. He was professional and personal. I would definitely recommend him in the future.

Todd got my 25 mph over speeding ticket (70 in 45) reduced to failure to obey a traffic sign with only 3 points and court costs. He was very professional and an excellent communicator in explaining how he was going to proceed with my case. He shared his court strategy and got the job done with great results. I would not hesitate to recommend him and in fact already have!

Todd was very honest and professional and did much better than I expected. He reduced my case from 25 mph speeding to a zero point violation. He kept me informed and was a real professional. I would highly recommend him.

I worked with Mr. Zinicola when I began at the Public Defender's office in 2007, and have been friends with him since then. As an incredibly well-respected member of the defense bar, and founder of an incredible law firm, Mr. Zinicola is a well rounded attorney and skilled advocate. Where Mr. Zinicola is unmatched is in his communication skills. I have seen T.Z. take the most complex cases and communicate his client's side simply and clearly to the prosecution, the judge, or the jury in a way that seems effortless for him, but no one else could imitate. It is his inborn skill, but one he hones to perfection through preparation, knowledge of the law, and carefully working with his clients to determine the target outcome.
