Nick G. Zissimopulos

Daniel Glassman & Nick Zissimopulos have over three decades of experience in Gainesville practicing personal injury, criminal defense, and civil law in Gainesville, Florida.



“We believe every client matters. We treat our clients the same way we would want to be treated if we were in the same situation. We put clients first.”


– 1995, Local Beginnings

After working in a law office during his school years, Dan Glassman started his law career and stayed here in Gainesville.  For the last twenty years, Dan Glassman has handled auto accidents, personal injury, wrongful death and negligence cases.

– 2003, The Team is Formed

By the time Nick Zissimopulos started practicing law with Dan Glassman, Nick had been in Gainesville for 8 years completing his undergraduate and law school degrees.  For years, Nick and Dan worked closely on civil and criminal defense cases.  It was during these years that it became clear that the two men shared a common vision . . . that every client matters and that attorneys should put clients first.

– 2014 , A New Beginning

Glassman & Zissimopulos believe that attorneys should put clients first.  To meet that goal, the firm has three simple rules.  First, be honest with the client.  Second, develop relationships with the clients so that they will feel comfortable being honest with us.  And Finally, always remember the client is the boss.  We cannot guarantee a result.  Any lawyer who guarantees results is lying to you.  However, the one thing we can guarantee is we will follow these rules and always work to put you first.

  • Will I have to pay anything up front for you to handle my car accident case?

    No.  Glassman & Zissimopulos handles your auto accident and injury cases on a contingency agreement.  That means that if we take your case, then you do not have to pay any fees or costs for your accident or injury case unless we get a monetary resolution for you.

  • What type of auto insurance should I have to protect me if I am in an accident?

    There are multiple auto insurance options.  For our own family members, we typically recommend making sure that auto insurance coverage includes the following: property and personal injury protection (if you have auto insurance, then you have these coverages); liability insurance coverage; uninsured/under insured motorist coverage; comprehensive and collision and med-pay.  If you have any questions about your auto insurance, please call us for a no-fee consultation.

  • What should I do if I am in an accident?

    If you are injured, seek medical attention immediately.   In most situations, the law requires you to notify law enforcement if there has been an accident.  We advised calling law enforcement and making a record of the accident.  Make sure to preserve evidence like pictures of crash damage, witness contact information, etc.  Florida law requires a person involved in an accident to cooperate with law enforcement who is investigating the crash.  Other than those statements, you should seek the advice of an attorney prior to making any statements and specifically should not speak to any insurance companies without knowing your rights.  Recent changes in the law concerning personal injury protection benefits may result in the forfeiture of those benefits if you do not seek medical attention within 14 days from the date of your accident and receive documentation of an EMC (emergency medical condition) if it applies to you.  If you have any questions, you can reach someone from our staff 24-hours a day at 352-505-4515 or 844-787-2543.


  • I would like to thank everyone for being caring and hard work to resolve the case.

    They are very good and caring people and seem to really want to help me with my pending case in every way possible!
  • Very Responsive, intelligent, professional and driven

    It only took a few minutes with Nick and I knew he was going to represent me better than the other lawyers I had meet and we would have a great working relationship. [...] His diligent research into my case and his knowledge of the law resulted in my case being reduced to charges I would have never thought possible. He has remained in contact even after the case was over and is always willing to take a phone call or have a meeting if I have any questions.
  • A hardworking lawyer that helps people in need

    Attorney Nick was truthful to my wife and I about our son's situation and with prayer and his hard work he was successful in our case. I believe we got more than our money's worth. He is a great lawyer that I will recommend to anyone who needs a great lawyer.
  • Your best option in Alachua County!

    As a client of Nicks for nearly five years I have developed a trust and appreciation for his counsel and ability to achieve results. His hard work and knowledge helped give me a second chance after near ruin from some poor decisions made in my early twenties. [...] The result after taking Nick as my attorney was far more palatable and I have since been able to put that all behind me. I am forever grateful for his willingness to go above and beyond expectation.
  • I highly recommend Nick...

  • Nick Z. worked for me!

    Nick was an amazing attorney. He handled my case from start to finish with my best interests in mind at all times. He is an excellent litigator and trial attorney. His court room demeanor and interrogative skills were top notch. I would recommend him to anyone in need and will use him in the future should I require additional representation.
  • Above and Beyond...

    My experience with Glassman and Zizzimopulos Law was above and beyond what I expected. I was referred to them through a coworker who had used them previously. When entering their office I was greeted with a smile and a beverage of choice. There was always polite conversation and she always greeted me as a guest not so much a client. I never had an issue with getting a hold of Nick whether it be at 7:30am or 9:00pm. He explained everything to me the way I could understand it. He looked through my case with a fine tooth comb and was able to help me out tremendously. I can never thank him enough!

  • Putting Clients First!

    The services I received from Nick Zissimopulos were excellent. He handled my case like a true professional and got the best possible outcome I could have asked for. I was always made aware of the next steps and felt confident that he would handle it. Years later, when applying for future jobs, Nick made himself available to answer any and all question in regards to my case. If you happen to find yourself or a family member needing representation in Florida. I highly recommend his services. You will not be disappointed.
