  • 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.

  • Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for your indispensable legal advice and work over the past year. It has given me tremendous peace of mind to know that my estate plan is now in place. Your meticulous work on all my requests and beyond, from creating documents that included my Power of Attorney, my Trust, and my Will, to advising on qualifications for in-home health care can simply not be adequately recognized. I wanted to let you know that I would attribute your accomplishments to not only the breadth of your legal knowledge, but also the very detail and patience you gave at every step and phase of the yearlong work. Thank you very much once again, Jack!

  • Attorney Joe Cipparone has been our lawyer for well over 25 years. In all that time, Joe and his firm have consistently provided legal counsel … of the highest level. This has included: real estate transactions, estate settlement, preparation of wills, and help with trusts that I administer. In all cases, Joe has delivered prompt, superb, advice. He is the ultimate professional and my entire family is grateful that we have a truly world class attorney to counsel and represent us. As a financial advisor, I have referred numerous clients to Joe over the years for estate and trust work. In all cases, the clients have gotten back to me to thank me for referring such a competent and first class attorney to them.

  • I can't say enough about working with Joe Cipparone and his paralegal, Debbie Ruttkamp. They are intelligent, clear, professional and a pleasure to work with. Working with someone who is so organized was a key to ensure that I could meet our estate planning goals (Wills, POA, Trust, etc.) and settle my mother’s estate without affecting my busy schedule. I think of Joe as more than a lawyer but a friend and confidant as well. Joe and Debbie care about their clients and have their best interest in mind.
