Who We Are


The founding Partner of the firm, John M. Zenir, Esq., has great experience outside of the law that he brings to his Practice. John started his career as a teacher of 7th and 8th grade school students, college level criminal justice and high school equivalency test preparation for adults of all ages. John’s career in education also provided him with the opportunity to work in a manpower career development program which enabled economically disadvantaged and unemployed people to become productive, more fulfilled members of society. For John, this teaching experience has taught him immeasurable life lessons regarding problem solving and the importance to foster resiliency in an individual’s mindset when approaching and formulating a plan to solve any challenge.

After leaving education, John formed a cleaning supply company from scratch with his mentor.  Within ten years, the company was one of the top five supply companies in New York City.

John attributes all these prior years of life and professional experiences to the approach he takes in his practice of law and his ability to focus on problem solving, education, and training for his clients.

All while ensuring that our clients receive the best outcome possible, either as the result of a trial or a settlement.
