Walked us through the different stages, helping us to know what to expect at each proceeding.
This was the first time ever needing an attorney, we felt pretty ignorant when we first met Jack Zinda. Jack Zinda presented professional experience and self-confidence, he was respectful and genuinely concerned for us as people (not a s "case"). Even though our situation was difficult, we felt confidence in Mr. Zinda handling our case. He made us feel comfortable, allowing us time to share our concerns. He returned our calls and answered our questions. He treated us as if we were his only case. Jack Zinda is knowledgeable; he brought in additional expertise specific to every facet of our case in order to provide the best defense. He also explained each purpose and steps of accomplishment. He also described and walked us through the different stages, helping us to know what to expect at each proceeding. We believe he helped to prepare us in advance for every aspect, including the emotions that may come during a hearing or trial of this type. Mr. Zinda's Paralegal, Jenni Wise, was thoroughly professional. She demonstrated respect, and offered constant communication. Jenni kept us informed, she answered our questions and took the time to explain or describe the characteristics of each proceeding. We are very thankful Jack Zinda received our case and will forever be grateful to him and his staff.

WOW! Outstanding!
I highly recommend Jack Zinda to anyone I know who needs an attorney. Jack is a very professional and knowledgeable lawyer. He really understood my husband and I as clients, knew how we felt and what we were going through. He has always been available to answer the many questions I had, and I always had plenty. He is an all-around great person to know. Jack Zinda is truly a Super Star!

Tenacious, Knowledgeable, Detailed Oriented, Compassionate, Hard Working, Superb Time Management & Communication Skills.
If You Don’t Trust the People You Work With Your as Good as Dead! Zinda Law Group is definitely the firm you want In/Outside the courtroom. When dealing with an unfortunate and untimely car wreck ZLG treated me like family. My assigned team Mr. Caputo and Chelsea Cates as the attorneys, Julia Haas and Jesse Olguin as the paralegals were there for me with Compassion throughout the case to help me understand and navigate the “What’s Next.” That’s important when your in pain, medical bills are stacking up, loss income from work loss, post-trauma stressors, hard jargon and legal ins & outs. My team were passionate and tenacious at tackling the What’s Nexts Questions. I could truly focus on me and a healthy recovery from what seemed like a real life nightmare. Imagine your car is totaled or in the shop. They came to me (pre-Covid), organized safe zoom calls, have the most technologically advanced resources, educated & knowledgeable staff who each acted as subject matter experts In their fields your not bogged down with let me get back to you or I am not familiar with that or just plain NO. ZLG and my team treated my case like the Chicago Bulls & Dallas Cowboys of the 90’s. You knew going into the game you had the right team and the right coach. Each game or tactic isn’t a guaranteed win but the chances of success is pretty win not because of their track record but because of their consistency and preparation each time they step up to the plate. When you make the call for a case evaluation you will know ZLG is going to work for you.

Personal Injury Lawyer
Jack Zinda really helped me out with some complicated legal issues I was facing. He took a lot of time to talk to me about what was going on and did a bunch of extra work that I didn’t expect (at no additional cost). I could tell that he really cared about me and wasn’t just looking for a financial recovery. There are a lot of lawyers out there, but I would call Jack Zinda and Zinda & Davis if you need help with a personal injury first.

Very professional and competent
From the moment I met Jack I was impressed with his professionalism. He walked me through every step of the litigation process and was straight forward and honest about my prospects of winning. My injuries were pretty serious and I was concerned I wouldn't get fully compensated. Jack was able to get me what I felt was more than fair and help me get my life back on track.

Made a very difficult time in my life a little easier.
The entire staff was very accommodating and kind making this very difficult time in my life a little easier. I appreciate all of the hard work and concern for my father’s case. Thank you all so much!

There ARE some really honest, helpful lawyers!
Over the past six years Jack has helped my husband and I with several legal matters. Dealing with insurance companies can be a nightmare. Jack and his firm cut through all of the red tape and we were able to receive an equitable settlement for an automobile accident that paid our medical bills and gave us some breathing room financially. He also helped us navigate the murky waters of a civil lawsuit dealing with some family property. We have trust his ethics and have never had a phone call go unanswered. Jack was empathetic and professional. I have recommended him to friends and coworkers and wouldn't hesitate to call him again for any legal issues that occur.

Caring and Passionate There for the Tears and Heartache
Over the past 3 years, Jack and the staff of Zinda and Davis, became part of my family and my life. The care and passion that they showed (expressed) to me and my husband was like no other. Jack was an attorney that was there for the tears and heartache. Jack always had a positive word or expression and Jenni his paralegal is a God Send.

Someone in your corner
There comes a time when you need someone in your corner that you can trust. Our time came when we knew we needed the advice and counsel of an attorney. The day we walked into the the law office of Zinda and Davis we knew we were covered. I would recommend Jack Zinda and Joseph Caputo to anyone. They are as personable as they are great at what they do. They were caring and trustworthy and went above and beyond to help us solve our legal issue as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Turned Things Around
From day one Mr. Jack Zinda made me feel that everything was going to be okay. He was very experienced and made me feel that things would turn around for me. Throughout teh process he got involved in case and would personally call me with updates. That gave me the confidence that I needed. Once I again I thank Mr. Zinda for the outcome of my case. I was very satisfied

Listened to Me
As cheesy as this sounds, I always got the feeling that Jack was experiencing a lot of the same emotions that I was going through whether it was anger at the insurance company or "annoyance" that this process was taking too long it was just very comforting knowing that he was empathizing and experiencing the same emotions as I.‎

Informative and Respectful
The staff at Zinda & Davis, PLLC treated me with respect and were sure to explain where we were every step of the was in my case. I don't wish to need legal services again, but I will certainly call Jack if I do.

Returned my Phone Calls
I was very pleased as to how soon the attorney Jack Zinda returned my phone calls anded discuss the case to answer questions and set up a office visit. Listened to my concerns. Kept me updated mostly by email with the situation and the results they found out. They thoughtfully explained what could be very complex topic but they explained it clearly. I appreciate all their efforts in helping me through a difficult time after my accident when I was hurt and out of work.
