Lodi, NJ 07644
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.
