Zingarelli Law Office would like to wish our warmest congratulations to attorney Nick Zingarelli for being named an Ohio Super Lawyers Rising Star for the 5th time in his career (2010, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017). This award is one of the highest honors an attorney can receive and Nick is thrilled to be named to the list again. For those of you unfamiliar with Super Lawyers, here’s a bit of information about the program from their website: “Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. To be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less. While up to 5 percent of the lawyers in a state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to Rising Stars.”

This past Friday, Nick Zingarelli had the opportunity to participate in a community service effort in conjunction with the 2016 American Bar Association National Solo and Small Firm Summit. This national seminar was held in Cincinnati this past week. More information on this event can be found here

Together with attorney Brian Flick, Nick spoke to students at The School for Creative and Performing Arts on the importance of financial literacy. Judge Karen Overstreet created this project and it is based upon the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges’ Credit Abuse Resistance Education Program (CARE), which is well known among bankruptcy judges and bankruptcy lawyers. The presentation focused on the importance of understanding credit cards and student loans as well as the dangers of payday loans. It is our hope that presentations such as this one will help our next generation break the debt cycle.

This weekend, we at Zingarelli Law Office urge all Americans to take a moment and pause to reflect on the sacrifices made by our military service-people to defend our nation from those that mean us harm. This Sunday marks the 15th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the crash of United Airlines Flight 93. Although we may disagree on many things, at our core, we are all Americans and should stand together in celebration of those that give so much so that we have the freedoms that we may too often take for granted. Let's put aside our disagreement and discourse for one day. For one day, let's be united in memory of the victims of these tragedies and to honor those that defend us. Thank you.

Many of our clients that meet with us are faced with garnishment of their wages by a car creditor for a vehicle that was repossessed long before they came into our office.  In this episode from Last Week Tonight, John Oliver explains the terrible circumstances surrounding the sub-prime car lending industry and why the "buy-here pay-here" car lots should be avoided whenever possible.  This is incredibly informative, but please do not watch if you are offended by strong language.

A law sneakily passed last year expanded the opportunity for the government to contact borrowers using robo-callers to collect on federal student loans and income taxes.  Zingarelli Law Office applauds the Federal Communications Commission for passing new rules that limit the use of this tactic to three calls per month.  The new FCC rules also limit the government to contacting only the borrower rather than the borrower's family.  For more information about this new regulation that helps protect consumers from creditor harassment, please read the below article.
