  • Joe Cipparone is an exceptionally caring and competent attorney. He has guided my personal and legal matters since 2005. Joe helped me with the settlement of my husband's estate and the creation of an estate plan for myself and my family's future. In addition, I have trusted Joe to manage my financial affairs including investments and my children's college planning. He has also advocated with state agencies on legal matters concerning my developmentally disabled son and created a trust for his future. I know Joe truly cares about me and my family. He has my utmost respect and confidence.

  • It's vitally important that clients not only concern themselves with the accumulation of wealth, but also give equal attention to the distribution of their accumulated wealth when the time comes. Joe not only helped me with plans for the distribution of my estate between my family members and my chosen charitable organizations, but was sensitive to the tax implications of my decisions and multi-generational safeguards. He also made sure that I was covered by other documents, such as Power of Attorney, Living Will and healthcare proxy. He made the process as transparent and stress-free as possible, and I feel confident in the decisions I have made. I would recommend that all conscientious people protect themselves and their assets as I have, and that they work with an estate planner as knowledgeable and reassuring as Joe Cipparone.

  • We knew from the initial consultation that our estate was to be treated as if it were Donald Trump’s. Joe was mindful of our specific wishes while offering proposals to improve and strengthen the plans. It was like seeking advice from a favorite uncle, as you knew your best interests were paramount. Joe was thorough in every aspect, considerately addressing our concerns and questions. We were most pleased to see our ideas and Joe’s expertise become solid legal planning. We regard Cipparone & Zaccaro, P.C., as “our” law firm and will absolutely return there for professional yet friendly managing of their areas of law.

  • Joseph Cipparone is the attorney for our LLC.  As such, the service he has provided has been first rate.  He's a good listener, which means that before he makes recommendations, he has gained a solid understanding of our goals and needs.  The recommendations he gave us have stood the test of time (nearly seven years), and we are grateful for his work.  The only difficulty in this recommendation is limiting our choice of the above attributes to three; he has excelled in all.
