The firm was formed as a successor to the law practice of John R. Serpico who practiced law in Brooklyn, New York for over 30 years. John G. Serpico joined his father in 1993 and established his own firm in 1994. Rashidah S. Siddiqui joined the firm in 2003 and was made partner in 2005. Since the formation of the firm, it has grown in size, areas of practice and quality of services.

John R. Serpico died in July, 2001.

John Serpico was born and bred in Brooklyn, New York, first in Crown Heights and then in Bay Ridge. John is a product of the NYC public school system (Fort Hamilton H.S. - Go Tigers!), and went to Pennsylvania for his higher education (attending the University of Pennsylvania for his BA degree which he received in 1982 and Villanova University School of Law for his law degree in 1986). John began his law career in Pennsylvania working for 6 years as a pension investigator for the US Department of Labor and as a tax and pension attorney for Fidelity Mutual Life Insurance Company. John lost his Brooklyn accent while in Pennsylvania but not his love for New York. He returned to New York in 1993 and has been practicing law in Brooklyn ever since that time. John lives in both New York City and Amagnsett, NY where he also practices and develops real estate.
