"Knowledge will give you power, but character will give you respect."
Marisa E. Zarzeski is our Pre-Suit Personal Injury Lawyer leading our Port St. Lucie office.
Ms. Zarzeski joined the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb in the spring of 2020 as an associate attorney in the pre-litigation department, leading her team of paralegals and assistants in managing a large caseload of auto accident and premises negligence cases.
Her commitment to our firm and her clients is evident in her having uprooted her life in Tampa, Florida to move to Port St. Lucie and lead our new office serving the Treasure Coast.
Her primary concentration is building, negotiating, and settling personal injury claims on behalf of her clients. At her last firm, she earned nearly $4M worth of settlements on behalf of her clients in less than twelve months.
After graduating law school, Ms. Zarzeski fine-tuned her skills at a number of prominent plaintiff’s personal injury firms throughout the west coast of Florida, and even opened her own practice for a short time. Ultimately, the draw to join a bigger team and make a greater impact for her clients won her over, and she joined LOCG.
Ms. Zarzeski’s critical way of thinking combined with her straight-forward, no-nonsense approach to negotiation and problem-solving, make her an effective and zealous advocate for her clients and the preservation of their rights under the laws of Florida.
In her down time, Ms. Zarzeski immerses herself in the Port St. Lucie community by staying active with hobbies like fishing, cycling, and trail running. She currently coaches the U-14 co-ed Port St. Lucie Soccer Club recreation community team, The Hurricanes, and is active in her local PSL church.

Hear What Our Clients Say
The kindest, most caring and truly amazing human beings. When you are injured you find yourself most vulnerable, you need a trustworthy team to lean on. I found myself completely at ease with my team, from the beginning to the end.
— Trudy Quesada
Excellent experience. From my initial meeting, through the updates and delays, they kept me in the loop. They responded quickly to any of my status requests. They overdelivered on the amount promised.
— Walter Lopez
Everyone we met was very helpful and understood just how traumatic our experience had been. Based on what we were told initially, the case was completed much more quickly and the outcome was much better than we had expected.
— Harmon Garfinkel
Jeff, Kasten and Donald were an amazing support during a very hard time. I can’t recommend this law firm enough. They have the expertise you need when you get injured, and are looking out for your best interests.
