This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
I hired Mr Zimmerman to handle a bankruptcy case for me. I gave him a full list of my creditors. He omitted many of them in his filing. I brought it to his attention, he blamed me, and then wanted more money to add the creditors he omitted. The bankruptcy was completed at this point and I still have the debts he omitted. I took him to small claims court and he told the judge I was just trying to make a name for myself trying an attorney in small claims court. The judge never fully heard or considered my case or was interested in allowing me to speak as judges have little respect for non attorneys. I gave up, because other attorneys are not interested in pursuing cases against fellow attorneys that they will have to interact throughout their careers. However, I can surely let others know that he has proved himself a liar and dishonest in my opinion and with clear supporting documentation.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2003.

Reprimanded issued in NJ, 2003
updated on 12/10/2015

This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

James's comment: “In 2003, I successfully defended a 2nd Offense DWI matter for a client. The legal fee was fixed and billed at the conclusion of the case. The amount of the actual fee was never in dispute. The issue was whether it was in writing before I accepted the case. The law requires that all fee agreements be in writing and signed at the beginning of the case. I revised my practice to assure that every client is provided with a proposed and final fee agreement in every case.”
