Mr. Zellers is a fast and thorough attorney.
Mr. Zellers has handled a couple different cases for myself and also for my employees who I referred to Mr. Zellers based on the quality of service he provided to me. He is a hard worker who stays in good communication with his clients to ensure a certain level of comfortability throughout the legal process.

Great Attorney
Mr. Zellers was very responsive and efficient in taking care of my traffic ticket. He even met up with me closer to where I live to give him papers and my payment. I felt that his services were worth more than he charged me. I would defiantly hire him again.

Helping with caring
In regards to our case, Mr. Zellers was knowledgeable and had access to many resources that helped us. The most important thing for our family was that we weren't just a transaction to him. He genuinely cared about us and our situation. The passion in which he invoked that knowledge and caring, we couldn't find anywhere else.
