Why did you become an attorney?

I’ve always been very passionate about the law. The complexities and details make it very interesting to learn. The great thing about becoming an attorney is that I’ve made my passion into a career that allows me to help people everyday facing financial struggles. Since the current national financial challenges began, we have almost constantly heard about the widespread economic problems our nation faces. Jobs are being lost. Debt is growing. Spending is slowing. Every day I help clients save their homes from foreclosure, keep their cars from being repossessed and their wages from being garnished. I keep the utilities of my clients from being disconnected. Every day is a rewarding day.

What made you choose your primary specialty focus of law?

No one goes to law school wanting to become a bankruptcy attorney. I was fortunate enough to be offered a clerking position in a small bankruptcy firm and once I began to learn how many people need financial help in this economy, I learned how rewarding it was to help those in need. In this economy, people need more help than ever winning the battle with their creditors. I fight for my clients as well as their houses, cars, wages, and well being.

What makes your law firm unique?

If you need fast and affordable solutions to debt-related problems, Zingarelli Law Office is prepared to help. We are not a "bankruptcy mill" that processes all bankruptcies the same. Instead, we provide tailored and attentive legal services to each client. At the Cincinnati law firm of Zingarelli Law Office, we work toward achieving financial solutions. Solutions to overwhelming debt. Solutions to creditor harassment and illegal creditor tactics. Solutions to the threat of home foreclosure and car and truck repossession. And solutions to wage garnishment and the threat of heat and electricity disconnection.

Describe your charitable activities.

I am very passionate about my work and I want to help foster those same feelings in young adults that have an interest in learning about the law. I currently volunteer as a coach for the Elder High School Mock Trial Team. I’ve been with the team for 3 years now and we have made it to regional competition every year that I have been a coach.
