An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Carol Zimmerly was recommended to us by a realtor/landlord who happens to be a family friend. We are renting a house and the property management company has changed within the last few months. The new company is impossible to get on the phone and they only communicate via email---always only one or two sentences. This has caused a problem now that our lease is set to be renewed. We were having trouble understanding if our lease was officially renewed, when we received a two sentence email informing us that the rent would be increasing by $500.00 A MONTH. We hadn't received any communication through the mail, and our response to the two sentence email was met with silence, so we decided to consult with a professional. Zimmerly explained all the ins and outs of Florida realty laws to us, and advised us how best to proceed. She was very informative and charged a very reasonable price. We are still in the process of negotiation with our current landlord, but if there are any future problems, we would not hesitate to hire Carol Zimmerly to represent us.

After researching to find a For Tenant Attny we were able to Find Miss Carol Lynne Zimmerly.
When other attorneys did not want to be bothered with listening to a Tenant, Carolyn Stepped up to bat Listen and file all the paper work that needed to be file to let my Landlord know that we were been legally Represented.
After going to her office in Kissimmee,
She looked at the Eviction notices that were given to us and noted that it was done incorrectly.
She send a letter to the land lord to make him aware of our Rights as Tenants in the state of Florida and the Consequences he could faced.
To any one out there who is in needs an Affordable Attny that will Represent you, i highly Recommend Attny Carol Lynne Zimmerly.
Thank you again Carolyn for meeting with me and giving us hope when we thought we had no one to turn to,

Carol assisted me with a tough tenant eviction. Unfortunately my tenant stopped paying and refused to take my calls. This was after being promised rent several times. Carol operated very effectively and calmed my nerves. Felt as though she really knew what she was doing and took care of my situation as well as my needs. I would highly recommend Carol to anyone that has a tenant that is not paying or being difficult in fulfilling their agreement on the lease. Also, she was able to help me redo my lease with one that was more effective for future tenants. There was a price for her lease but well worth it if I ever needed to evict another tenant. Florida law I find is very difficult to negotiate but with her knowledge and new lease, I doubt I will ever have another issue with ejecting another tenant due to non payment.

Ms. Zimmerly and I practice in some of the same areas of law. I have had the privilege of reviewing many of her responses and comments to questions posted on Avvo. Her answers and comments reflect a deep understanding of the law and have provided helpful information. I endorse this lawyer.
