The Best in The Business. FIRST CLASS!
Attorney Zimmerman and I met through a mutual friend in 2010. Over the past 9 years, Brian has helped me with many different business and personal issues, most of which he has been able to handle without litigation. I have yet to come up with an issue that he hasn't helped come up with a solution. He is the person we have leaned on the most as we attempt to take our business to the next level. Also, Brian is very fair when it comes to billing. He isn't overcharging for services or padding his hours when he sends a bill. All of the money spent with Hurtado Zimmerman has been very well spent. Brian is an exceptional and heartfelt individual, mixed with a wealth of knowledge and care for his clients. I am lucky to have met him. I look forward to my business growing with his expertise and guidance.

I have worked with Brian on numerous issues over the years. Brian helped me setup my LLC documents, represented me successfully in a small claims suit and has dealt with a contractor who failed to complete work that was already paid for.

Endorse Brian
Real estate Attorney | Jun 21
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Creative. Resourceful. Cost-effective. Brian Zimmerman is an excellent and meticulous lawyer. His degree in civil engineering and experience handling an extensive number of complex construction and real estate matters sets his work apart from other lawyers. He finds pragmatic solutions to difficult issues -- often without formal dispute resolution, but can handle both litigation and arbitration of claims when needed. He also provides transactional commercial and residential real estate acquisition, like-kind exchanges and title work services. I recommend him without reservation."
Real estate Attorney | Apr 25
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Attorney Zimmerman is an effective litigator and highly skilled negotiator. He can, with equal facility, try a case to its final verdict, or quarterback a complex transaction to its final signature. He is not just a lawyer, he is a strategic advisor with a practical, business-oriented approach to client matters."
Real estate Attorney | Apr 25
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I fully endorse Brian Zimmerman. I have had the opportunity to work with Brian for a number of years on a wide variety of matters. In every instance, I have known him to exhibit the highest level of integrity, while acting as a zealous, efficient and tireless advocate for his clients."
