  • 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.

  • Jack did an outstanding job putting my entire estate plan together. He went into great depth by including what might appear as small details such as contact names, pass codes, phone numbers, etc. that upon death will make it a lot easier for the executor to quickly keep my business running. I highly recommend Jack.

  • Though I was aware of their admirable reputation for many years, it was in 2009 that John Zaccaro helped me with a property dispute.  We found their approach to everything was in truly caring for their clients and treating them with respect and empathy.  We received easily understandable explanations of complex legal issues and felt confident of their experience, knowledge, research and attention to detail.  At the troubling beginning of the legal dispute, John was always accessible and accommodating.  We found his demeanor comforting yet cautious while instilling an assurance that we would prevail.  Our worries became enthusiasm as the matter developed and we were able to trust that we had the best lawyer in whom to place our confidence – and the end result proved it.

  • After 29 long years, the United States Immigration Court finally granted my brother and me our Permanent Resident cards on January 24, 2011.  We received our long-awaited Green Cards on February 12, 2011.  My brother and I would like to thank Attorney Robert Kim Bingham from the bottom of our hearts for all the hard work and dedication he rendered to make our case successful.  The professionalism, meticulous and articulate manner in which Attorney Robert Kim Bingham handled our case made it a success in court.  My brother and I are now officially Permanent Residents.  Shoud we ever need any additional help, we will not hesitate to call up him.  We would be happy to recommend him to anyone that needs legal help in the future.
