Member, National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys
In July 2022, John founded Zuccaro Law, LLC, fulfilling a life-long dream of opening his own law firm. Throughout his career, John has learned that the most important parts of practicing law are effective communication, being a sounding board for clients as much as an advocate, and making a difference in clients’ lives. John strives build long lasting client relationships by providing clients with high quality representation in a clear, unintimidating, and stress-free environment.
When founding Zuccaro Law, LLC, John wanted to make sure to give back to those that serve our communities. John’s grandfather was a veteran of the United States Army, having served in the 24th Infantry Division during the Korean War, where he was awarded the Purple Heart. John’s father worked as a civilian at the Boston Police Department – most notably as manager of paid details. John’s Grandmother was extremely active in East Boston community organizations and was a school crossing guard with the Boston Police. John’s mother was a paraprofessional at a local middle school. It is for these reasons that Zuccaro Law, LLC is proud to support our veterans and active duty military, law enforcement, first responders, and teachers by providing them discounts on all our rates.
Prior to forming Zuccaro Law, LLC, John gained invaluable experience as an Associate Attorney at The Law Office of Robert Pellegrini, Inc., d/b/a PK Boston Law and at The Law Office of Scott C. Holmes. In those roles, John handled a wide variety of civil matters, including, among other things, estate planning, small business formation, real estate and property matters, contract drafting and disputes, and civil litigation. John’s broad litigation experience had him representing clients in personal injury, contract, employment discrimination, collections, construction, corporate, and other disputes. John has argued before the Boston Municipal Court, District Court Department, Superior Court Department, and the Massachusetts Appeals Court. This invaluable litigation experience helps John provide non-litigation clients with a different perspective on how to address issues in order to best attempt to avoid a costly and time-consuming dispute.
John received his Juris Doctor in 2013 from New England School of Law. At New England Law, John was an Associate Editor and Senior Technical Editor for the New England Journal of International and Comparative Law. During his time in Law School, and shortly thereafter, John served as a Judicial Intern for the Justices of the Boston Municipal Court where he conducted a wide array of legal research and assisted the Justices in drafting opinions and orders. John further interned for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, the Office of the Clerk/Magistrate of the Central Division of the Boston Municipal Court, and in the Insurance and Unemployment Fraud division of the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office. John obtained a double Bachelor of Arts degree from Suffolk University in 2010, majoring in Sociology (Criminology) and Government (Political Science).
John is admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, State of New Hampshire, the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, and the United States First Circuit Court of Appeals. John is also a Notary Public in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. John is an avid Boston sports fan, and in his free time he enjoys traveling, reading, cooking, gardening, golfing, and astronomy.
