Excellent Service!
My husband and I hired Joe Zebas of Zebas Law Firm LLC, regarding a civil matter concerning our daughter. We could not be more thankful to Joe Zebas and could not have asked for better service. From the moment we first called until our case was won, we were at ease and satisfied that we had made the right choice. He was very caring, patient and helpful and took the time to really listen and hear us out. Joe has an outstanding work ethic that was demonstrated throughout the civil process. He was very prompt in all correspondence and kept us informed every step of the way. We don't have enough words to describe how amazing our experience with Zebas Law Firm was. Joe and his office staff will work very hard to make sure you too have winning results. If you are looking for a firm that treats its clients with the upmost respect and care, then I highly recommend Zebas Law Firm!

Respectful and Sincere. Best Lawyer ever.
I was in an automobile accident and the other person admitted to being at fault. Her insurance company started giving me the go around, so I hired Joe Zebas and he started working right away on my case. He was away respectful and sincere. He always asked me how I was doing and kept me up to date about my case. He is a wonderful lawyer. I would recommend Joe Zebas to everyone. On a scale of one to ten...i would give him a fifteen.

The Best!!!
Joe represented me in an employment issue. Joe took my case because it was the right the thing to do. Not because of money or personal gain, but the right thing to do! The stress of the situation can take a very heavy toll. I cannot tell you how much it means to have someone genuinely concerned about me and my families well being through the whole situation. Committed, dedicated, trustworthy, and honest don’t ever change Joe. Good to know there is still someone who does the right thing! Highly recommend!!

The Best
Joe and his staff are amazing! He is very down to earth and doesn't beat around the bush. He took my case when nobody else would. He did it because it was the right thing to do, knowing that it wouldn't benefit him much at all. He is a great man and lawyer! His wife, Heather is pretty awesome too! I highly recommend Zebas Law!

Overtime pay
I needed an attorney when my employer required me to work past my contract hours with no compensation. Mr. Zebas was a very competent, knowledgeable, and thorough attorney. He spoke to me like a friend, explaining terms I didn’t recognize and making sure I understood each aspect of my case. He and his staff were quick to respond to emails, texts, and calls. I highly recommend the Zebas Law Firm.

Highly recommend
Mr. Zebas was professional, knowledgeable and cared about his clients! He kept us informed all the way the good and the bad. At the start he was given a dogs dinner case from a deceased lawyer. He took on the case and worked hard to get it to a positive resolution. This is the firm I would go back to time and time again with anything I had a problem with.

Zebas Law
I was involved in an accident approximately five years ago, which necessitated retaining an attorney. I had never been involved in litigation prior, and was unwise to the process. Mr. Zebas, Mrs. Zebas, and their staff were amazing throughout the entire process, explaining the various stages and advising me on the courses of action available. I am extremely pleased and grateful that they were with me, and would not hesitate to seek their counsel in the future should the need arise. Thank you!!!

5+ Stars
If I had to pick one word to describe the Zebas Law Firm it would be “family”. Joe had been working on a couple of cases for my mom who unfortunately passed away on January 22, 2021. Not only did he continue working on her cases but as soon as he found out she was hospitalized with COVID-19, I was given his personal number because he wanted to be kept up to date on her condition. His whole staff was very concerned about her well-being. That alone touched my heart. I had the opportunity to speak to Joe one time on a Zoom call on an unrelated case but just to know that he felt that it was necessary to be included with her updates daily speaks volumes for me. Not just as an attorney but as a man. I think everyone can agree that good, upstanding, honest men aren’t easy to come by these days. I’m grateful my mom had the opportunity to build the relationship she had with him, I just pray she knew how much he genuinely cared for her. When my mom took a turn for the worst, I had called his office and Abigail answered the phone. She told me he had stepped out of the office for a little bit and asked if there was anything she could do for me. I told her why I was calling and she put me through to him immediately. Joe stayed on the phone with me while I cried and told me that things were going to be ok. He made sure that I knew if there was anything he could do to contact him. The Zebas Law Firm is much more than a legal team. They have shown us that going above and beyond is something they do on a daily. I wish there was a higher rating because 5 stars doesn’t do him justice!! We are blessed to have crossed paths with him!!

Serious automobile accident
I was in a serious automobile accident with my son and his friend while picking them up from school. I was rear ended by a company truck while traveling down the highway and lost control of my vehicle. The result of the accident left me having to have 3 vertebrae fused in my neck and over a year worth of physical therapy. Although the aftermath of the wreck was far from easy, working with Zebas Law Firm was by far the best decision I could've made in hiring a lawyer. He simply instructed me to follow doctor's orders and he would take care of everything else, and he did what he promised. Working with Mr. Zebas, his wife, and staff was more than just a business relationship. They were like family. His explanation of my case and the other details never had me questioning his ability to do his job and he went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of. I can never thank him and his team enough for what they did for me and my family and I wouldn't hesitate to refer any friend or family member to his law firm.

Amazing Lawyer and Staff
We were like you, researching for the best person to handle our case after being insulted by the Insurance company. Joe knew exactly what to do and was very upfront about what he could do. Well he far exceeded that in the manner in which he handled us, not just the case. We were people to them and they were caring and gracious throughout my wife's recovery and fought for us every step of the way. My advice is hire him, don't argue with him, let him be the lawyer and do what he asks of you. You will come out ahead in the end. They are personable, they don't talk down to you, they genuinely care, and there were no surprises. They update you frequently and sometimes call for no reason to see how you are recovering. If you don't go with Joe you tend to lose in more ways that just money.

Best Attorney!!
Mr. Zebas was excellent in every aspect of my case. He did everything in is power to help me. He was firm, yet very understanding, in my needs and he knew what was best for our case. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Zebas for your case. He will tell it like it is, yet be fully caring of your needa. His staff, especially Heather, were very sincere and very professional.

Injury from car accident
2 years ago I was in a pretty serious car accident, I suffered from a hip injury because of this. The person at faults insurance offered me pretty much nothing from this accident, so that's when we contacted Mr.Zebas he immediately called them and told them it was unjust what they were doing and offering me. He fought with them for a while but he got me what I deserved. I'm so great full for him and his service, I highly recommend him to others. I can't begin to thank him enough for helping me out.

Excellent and thankful
I am from out of town and was not sure who to seek out for legal advice with my dog bite case. Mr. Zebas reached out to me and offered to take on my case and helped me understand the necessary steps and what to expect. He also continuously kept me informed and was very professional with handling the case. I am thankful for his great service and that we won the case and were able to settle in a timely and respectful manner. Mr. Zebas is respectful and trustworthy.

excellent attorney
I was recently represented by Mr. Zebas and I highly recommend him. He saved me and my case. He is honest and smart. He was also very compassionate and kind to me. He worked very hard on my case and we had an excellent result. He understood what I was going through and did everything in his power to help me. I am very thankful for his help. If you are looking for an attorney, I would encourage you to speak with Mr. Zebas. Honestly, I spoke with an attorney before I met Mr. Zebas and was informed that nothing could be done with my case. However, Mr. Zebas told me that he would try his best to help me and he did just that. Thank you, Mr. Zebas! Angelina
