I hired Mr. Zigler to represent me on a relocation case. He assured me that I had a legal right to move with my daughter, as the custodial parent, and that I had a solid case. He even told me that the opposing counsel didn't understand the law. It went all the way to trial, and it turns out that I didn't have grounds to move with my daughter after all. Much of the evidence that would have helped my case was not admitted because Mr. Zigler didn't follow the rules of evidence. The judge scolded him time and time again for not asking questions properly (she even told him exactly what to say in some cases) and for arguing "the wrong case". In the end, the judge not only ruled against me but ordered me to pay all of the opposing counsel's fees (nearly $17,000 on top of the $12,500 that I already paid Mr. Zigler.) Mr. Zigler didn't advise me that I had to tell the judge I would stay prior to her ruling if I wanted to go back to our old parenting plan (a new change in the law, just prior to trial), so even though I told him immediately afterwards that I wasn't moving and wanted to rescind my petition, it was already too late. I ended up losing custody of my daughter and getting only minimal visitation, as if I had moved out of state, even though I stayed right here. I had to pay yet another attorney over $5,000 to renegotiate the plan with my ex where I got all my visitation back but cannot regain custody.
We were very happy with the entire process of the lawsuit/mediation that Mr. Zigler handled for us. He was helpful and looked out for our best interests in the matter.
Ken was a great help in winning my custody case. He was responsive, answered all questions I had, and never left me in the dark about what was going on. I would hire him again but thankfully I don't have anymore kids to fight for.
Ken was very understanding with me, he always had a answer to my question that i didnt know, Ken went above and beyond, He was on top of returning my calls or emails, he takes the time to actually listen and care about the situation. If i would recommend anyone I would recommend Ken
Ken listens to our needs and is very sympathetic to our situation. He is very on top of things and is very prompt to return correspondence within a business day. He truly has the child's best interest in mind when working the case. He has integrity as a lawyer and as a person. Thanks!
Ken had an amazing attention to detail. He kept me well informed of what was going on with my case, and took the time to explain "why" things are done in the order they are. He had the answer to all my questions off the top of his head and paid more attention to my case than most lawyers do for their clients.
If you want somebody who will listen, be supportive, and be an advocate for you, then Ken Zigler is your attorney.
