Excellent
Ms. Zimmerman was recommended to me by a friend, with good reason. She was knowledgeable, helpful, and supportive of me through this process. She gave me options at every step, kept me informed of deadlines, updates and timelines, and never made me feel like my case wasn't important to her.

I was getting a divorce, scared and didn't know what I was doing. Rebecca did an amazing job of guiding me, fighting for me and helping me get the best outcome for my situation. I highly recommend her.

BEST FAMILY LAW LAWYER
Rebecca is the best family law attorney I've ever encountered. She's very personable and goes out of her way to accommodate any situation that came up during my custody case. Any question I asked of her; she came with the answer within the same hour or at the most the same day. Preparing for court is always a lot to deal with but she is so prompt and tedious to the smallest of details that no question went unanswered in court. She communicated with me EVERY step of the way. No matter if it was late at night or early in the morning. Even when she was out of the office she still managed to fit my life into hers. I am very appreciative and grateful to have such a professional lawyer like her standing beside me in court! The compassion and empathy she showed for me (a single mother going through a divorce and custody battle) was BEAUTIFUL! She changed my life and my childrens lives. Fighting in court is very stressful. The way Rebecca Zimmerman moves through the court room and fought for us is everything I could've ever asked for & more in an attorney. She's the BEST and I say that with the most confidence because I've dealt with quite a few family law lawyers in the Richmond area and none of them even compare to the type of attorney she is. Thank you thank you thank you for everything you've done for us ‼️

Divorce Case
Rebecca was super attentive and responsive. Right away she was so open to help and give advice when my sister contacted her on my behalf. She is kind and compassionate which was so welcoming when facing a situation I never thought I'd be in. She made the process as smooth as it could be and was very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend her.

Professional, concise, and proactive
I was originally assigned to a different lawyer when my case was first submitted back in 2020, but after he left the firm in 2021, I was reassigned to Rebecca Zimmerman, and I couldn't have been happier that she was my new attorney. She was consistently proactive throughout my entire case, and her communication was exceptional from start to finish. She was always following up with me and giving me weekly, if not daily updates during my case. I ended up getting the result I wanted in the end, and she made the process as less stressful as you possibly can while going through a divorce. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to hire a talented and professional lawyer that will always look out for your best interest.

Absolutely wonderful lawyer. Very personable and attentive to your needs, great communication never had to call the office to ask what was going on. Mrs. Zimmerman stays on top of it, makes you fully aware of everything.

Excellent Lawyer
Rebecca was extremely professional and knowledgeable. She guided me through the process and effectively explained the law and my options. If you are in need of her service it's already a difficult time but her demeanor and skills make a hard time a little easier. Her services are also affordable.

Knowledgeable, understanding, professional… exceptional attorney!
Words do not express my gratitude for the skill and professionalism with which Rebecca handled my case. Throughout my divorce and custody battle Rebecca was easily accessible, patient and extremely knowledgeable about my case. She explained everything to me clearly, and always made me feel like a priority. She truly cared about my case and she worked tirelessly to produce a positive outcome for myself and my children. Rebecca remained calm and seemed to think of everything during settlement discussions with opposing counsel and a deposition of my ex-husband that was (to say the least) tense. Going through a divorce and custody battle was the hardest thing I’ve ever endured, and I don’t know how I would have survived it without Rebecca’s compassion and guidance. She tells you everything you need to know, kindly and with your best interests in mind every time. If you find yourself in need of an excellent family law attorney, I highly recommend Rebecca Zimmerman.

Review from a very grateful client
Separation negotiations with my now-separated spouse were not going well. After a few weeks of volatile behavior and various threats from said spouse I was scared, barely eating or sleeping, and under incredible stress. I realized I needed a lawyer. I searched online quite a bit but was very disappointed. So many reviewers felt that their attorneys had neglected or cheated them. Thankfully, I didn't end up with anyone like that. I found Rebecca. She contacted my spouse's counsel and for the most part, the belligerence and threats stopped that day. It was seriously like night and day. It was a turning point for me, as well. Thanks to Rebecca's confidence and experience throughout the process, so much of my stress and worry evaporated. I remember sleeping like a baby the first night after hiring her (and I eat just fine now). She was always quick to respond to me, whether by phone or email, and she patiently walked me through the separation negotiations. I drew much of my strength from hers. I cannot recommend Rebecca enough. If your situation has gotten to the point that it's brought you here then you need to hire someone like her. It'll get better after that.

Highly Recommendable Attorney
Rebecca was excellent! She assisted me after my daughters dad took me to court for a visitation schedule. She provided great legal guidance as well as ensuring we had a very detailed visitation order taking into consideration my daughter's needs and feelings. I have never had to seek legal help and she did an amazing job at explaining everything to me as far as the process, legal fees, set realistic expectations and ensuring I got the end result I wanted that would most benefit my daughter. She was extremely responsive, courteous and definitely made me feel secure through out the entire process. Reaching her was never a problem and she always had an answer for me. She even went off on Maternity Leave and her entire team she works with made sure I was taken care of. Upon her return i heard right back from her and I would highly recommend her. I appreciate all the help she provided!

Rebecca was great. She completed my PSA after only talking to me on the phone for 20 minutes. She incorporated everything I wanted and sent it out quickly for signatures. I held off on the divorce papers for a year because of circumstances. I emailed Rebecca a year after she completed the PSA and asked her to file for my divorce. She was able to do all the paperwork within two weeks. Very professional, courteous, and understanding of my circumstances and situation.

Knowledgeable, Compassionate, Sharp, and Professional Family Law Attorney
Ms. Zimmerman provided me with unmatched service in drafting a modification to my Child Custody Agreement with my ex wife. She was gracious and helpful with my seemingly unusual case. The original agreement that I had provided me with little to no time with my son and made it a difficult, uphill battle to fight in getting more time. Rebecca helped me negotiate with my ex wife's attorney and ensured that the opposing side did not pull the wool over our eyes. She attempted to hide accurate costs and information about my son's daycare and his medical insurance, to no avail. Several times during the course of negotiations, my ex wife showed her spitefulness and unwillingness to cooperate. Furthermore, my ex continued to be motivated by money, demanding more child support and went as far as to subpoena records from my employer to get information about my financials. Rebecca handled these situations with ease and grace. During the course of modification, Rebecca provided outstanding legal guidance as well as ensuring that my legal costs were efficiently managed for me throughout the process. In the end, we signed a modified agreement that included much more regular and holiday time and an accurate recalculation of Child Support. Everyone I spoke to and dealt with at the firm was great during this very difficult time. I appreciate all that was done for my family. I would highly recommend Ms. Zimmerman to anyone needing a Family Law attorney.
