About Me

Joe Tacopina, a high-profile New York-based lawyer, and the founder of the Law Offices of Tacopina Seigel & Turano, P.C. New York Magazine has recognized Joe Tacopina as New York's Top Rated Lawyer — a sentiment that has been postulated by numerous media outlets and notable legal institutions throughout the duration of his distinguished twenty-plus-year legal career.

Having offered legal defense for such cases as the disappearance of 11-month-old Lisa Irwin, the hit-and-run death of a woman who was killed by a dump truck, and other high-profile litigation, Mr. Tacopina maintains a commitment to justice for his clients. Mr. Tacopina often lectures on a broad range of legal issues, including as an adjunct faculty member at Fordham Law School, Cardozo Law School's Intense Trial Advocacy, and Yale Law School’s Mock Trial Association.

The New York Post calls Joe Tacopina a “top-shelf, high powered litigator.” His reputation is indeed so renowned that he serves as the inspiration for the fictional attorney Clay Simms as featured on the CBS television show The Guardian.
