Frank T. Luciano obtained his law degree at Seton Hall University’s School of Law in 1973. Shortly thereafter, he began a judicial clerkship with the Honorable Guy W. Calissi J.S.C., a noted jurist and trial lawyer who served as Bergen County Prosecutor for many years where he successfully tried and won some of New Jersey’s most celebrated murder cases.

When he finished his clerkship in 1975, he started his own law firm in Bergen County where he remains today.

Litigation & Recognition

He has been litigating cases in the criminal and civil justice systems of New Jersey for almost forty years. As a young lawyer, he honed his trial skills as a municipal court public defender, where he worked for over thirteen (13) years. He is well-respected and well-received in the legal community. Indeed, an appeals court in New Jersey noted that “defense counsel (Mr. Luciano) has been innovative and diligent in his defense in this case.” He is committed to maintaining the integrity of the American Justice system by vigorously and intelligently testing legal and procedural principles that some lawyers may consider too well-settled to attack.

Our Client Testimonials

review stars

"Mr. Luciano freed my mind of anxiety right from the start. A consummate professional. He explained all options on defense and guided me to the one I followed with excellent results. Best of all, he is reasonable. Relax and let his knowledge (the magic) work."

From a former client

"First thing I want to tell is that I thank God for giving me the opportunity to meet such a wonderful person like you and without question, the best lawyer in this world. I am very grateful for everything you did for me. I want to let you know that I'm doing good and if you ever think of coming to . . . for vacation don't forget to contact me. Thanks again Mr. Luciano and please say hello to that kind lady that answers the phone with pleasure every time I called."

From a former client with a First Degree Distribution Charge

"In my distraction focusing on my . . . trial, I failed to ask you how things went with . . . I watched and learned from you throughout that case and greatly admire the consummsate attorney that I hoped to emulate. I witnessed how very hard you worked and how you left no stone unturned. I hope the case worked out for you and your clients. If it did not (and I hope it did) it was not for lack of the effect on your part which was humbling."

From an adversary in a case where we ultimately returned a verdict of $2,069,000

"My family and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work on my case. I feel like I can live my life normally again and it feels awesome. You are truly a professional and wonderful attorney."

From a former client charged with a serious weapons offense

"At the time, I was mortified because, having only worked against you in the Prosecutor’s Office, I couldn’t picture being on the same side. Frank, I want to thank you for the pleasure of having worked with you over the past years. I have learned a great deal from you. Most importantly, I learned that cases were not always as black and white as I thought they were when I worked for the Prosecutor’s Office. You are a wonderful attorney who not only works hard, but also cares deeply about his clients. Frank, I think you are the best."
