From the first time I talked to Paul, he was very helpful regarding my case. I was dealing with out-of-state child modification orders. Not only was he educated on this matter but also very fair I would highly recommend him to anyone

Paul is the first lawyer I have met who gave me the support and confidence I needed during a very stressful case. He is brilliant and knowledgeable and gave me peace of mind. not only is he thorough but he is incredibly personable and is capable of making you feel relaxed during a difficult moment. I highly recommend his services if you are looking for someone who knows exactly what they are doing.

Paul and Jonathan settled my case peacefully. Most lawyers attempt to prolong the divorce in attempt to improve their fees, I believe they perfectly met the medium between fair price and results.

5 Star Lawyer
Paul has been my attorney since December 2016. My divorce case was extremely complicated, involving a long term marriage with children and several business assets. Paul was able to successfully negotiate a settlement that was fair and reasonable, and saw to it my interests were protected. He was thorough, professional, meticulous, gave me full attention, devised a successful strategy with the opposing attorneys, and I would highly recommend his services without hesitation. Terry M.

Paul
Paul was recommended to me by a co worker. I did not want to use an lawyer originally. I agreed to meet with Paul and after about 5 minutes by stress level came down. I never imagined that going to court without representation would be a big deal. my friend sold me on Paul and he was right. never ever go without a lawyer to court. Paul is very knowledgeable , he truly cares and listen to the clients wants and needs.

Paul Zahn Gets an A Plus
Divorce is hard enough, but finding good legal counsel is difficult at best. After going through two previous attorneys, I retained Paul Zahn. Paul is smart, savvy and strategic. He is also dedicated to your case and keeps the lines of communication open. I was fortunate to have Paul on my side and I highly recommend him from the simplest to hardest issues that we all must deal with and fight in Family Law. Remember, Family Law is a business; there is no fairness. That’s why you need an attorney like Paul Zahn on your side.

Attorney with Character
Mr. Zahn is an attorney whom I would highly recommend. He is honest, sincere, and of great character. Not something I have always found to be true of attorneys. I felt he gave 110% and cared about the affect of the action on my grandchild. He was very insightful and did his best to make sure we understood each and every step of the process.

Perceptive Advocate
I highly recommend Paul Zahn. For over ten years I have been in a high-profile, most difficult family law litigation process. As a lay person, no matter how many years you sit in a courtroom with all its variables and inconsistencies on a monthly basis, you can still have no idea of what will happen next or how to understand and absorb the situation. Paul Zahn is my third attorney. He came into this case exactly one year ago at a time when my child had a life and death crisis. Paul absorbed, understood, perceived, and assessed the crisis and has since been an incredible advocate in a very difficult ongoing situation. His perceptions and understanding allow him to see the conditions clearly and choose the correct battles. In addition to these abilities, he is an expert on family law financial matters. He himself is a parent of young children, so he understands the emotional aspects as well. In my particular case, being sick of the process, complaining about the judges and the system, he has had immense patience and empathy, as much as anyone can. His court demeanor is calm; he clearly states the issues, and he is convincing in his arguments. He has treated me fairly, and I highly recommend him.

Satisfied thus far
Paul has been a great pleasure to work with. He is extremely knowledgable and forthright. I can always get in touch with him which is important for a more needy client. He is personable and has a great understanding of family law and the heartache attached to such tumultuous times. I trust him implicitly.

Mr. Zahn is outstanding
I hired Paul Zahn to help with my daughters divorce and custody of her 2 sons ages 1 and 2 years of age. He answered all of our questions and has been extremely patient and understanding of our circumstances. It was complicated since the father lives in Hawaii. Paul never let us down. I would highly recommend him to others and I will continue to request his help.

This man is absolutely AWESOME!!!
I cannot recommend Mr. Zahn enough! What he did was remarkable!!! NO...He was AWESOME!! I was in a situation that other attorneys were very unassured of and I had no confidence in. They could not convince me that they could pull though. Mr. Zahn pulled through with such grace and confidence. He gives no promises but I can tell you I am so very proud to have Mr. Zahn represent me and he will have my family legal issues here on. I will recommened Mr. Zahn to anyone that has a family law issue or even a bankruptcy issue for that matter. I didn't even meet him in person before my case. We spoke about my case on the phone and I met him before my case. He impressed me with his knowledge and he knew exactly what to do. I couldn't be more grateful for him and I can tell you that if I didn't have him on my side...I would have been raked through the coals! Instead, he saved me and my daughter in more ways than one!! Thank you Mr. Zahn!! Thank you!! You can trust Mr. Zahn!! And you will be very grateful for having him on your side!!!

Highly Recommend
Paul Zahn provided me with the absolute best representation in my divorce case, a divorce I did not want and one that came with the added attraction of a mean-spirited opposing counsel. He was a model of professionalism in my opinion -- ethical, even-keeled, caring, and financially prudent not only for me, but also with suggestions for the benefit of my ex-husband who chose to ignore the obvious. I have no hesitations in recommending Paul Zahn's services to anyone. --Paula
