Dr. Zinman is a kind and caring attorney. I wish there were more people like him in this world. Although, he couldn't take my case because I live so far away. Out of the kindness of his heart, he advised me on how to protect myself from the negligent and unscrupulous dentist who ruined my veeners. Dr. Zinman clearly doesn't like it when the community gets taken advantage of. Because he was quick to share his wealth of expert knowledge for free with me and guided me step by step through the process. I have received multiple e-mails from Dr. Zinman, some times just checking in on me and providing answers to all my questions. I am so grateful for him.
I highly recommend Dr. Zinman to everyone, he will go above and beyond for you. Like he did for me. Not only is Dr. Zinman an attorney with 30 years of dental malpractice experience, but he is also a former dentist. Which is why he's so brilliant at what he does. When I was researching for a dental malpractice attorney. I kept seeing many articles online regarding big money judgments for dental malpractice cases won by Dr. Zinman (look them up). I even read that he has sued Western Dental over 60 times and won. I was impressed and happy to see someone fighting for the underdogs, against the big corporate dental chains. Thank you Dr. Zinman for helping me and others in our desperate time of need. I'm blessed to know, such a devoted, highly intelligent, honest and caring professional as Dr. Zinman. May all the good you do, come back to you!

Mr. Zinman was admitted as a PRO HAC VICE on my sig dental malpractice in Virginia, and I subsequently filed non-suit shortly after Mr. Zinman and my attorney released the designation of experts testimony, since they never allowed me to review any of the dental records that the dentist presented, they never deposed any of the former employees that I recommended that had significant information, nor did they explain how they arrived at their decision which was contrary to my deposition as well as my excellent dental expert's opinion (specialist in Prosthodontics).. Specifically, the dentist who also has a law degree destroyed my entire oral health in 10 years time, in which he impulsively extracted of all of my 2nd molars without x-rays and informed consent, which also resulted in significant bone loss to my lower jaw area; however, the dentist never acknowledged the bone loss. During the 10 years of treatment, I did not have an ability to chew my foods from 2003 until my Board-Certified Prosthodontist restored my oral health in June 2013. This dentist extracted a total of 9 teeth w/o x-rays and informed consent: #29, #13, #10, # 5, #17, #20, #30, #31, and #15. The dentist also deliberately w/h my first 3 treatments beginning 8-28-02, 9-18-02, 10-2-02, for litigation purposes and fraudulently posted these tx's to my former dentist's record,previously retired. The dentist also usd former dentist's pt inform sheet with my name on it and crossed/o date and egregiously changed my husband's first treatment with him to my former chart and noted recent hx diabetes. This dentist also added add tx's to my former dental chart and then deleted billing record. Although I testified to this, and sent emails requesting a document examiner, my requests were ignored. Thus, the dentist did not present my attorney with all of my treatments and he presented false interrogatories. When the dentist was deposed, Mr. Zinman only asked dentist if he treated me at my former dentist's office, which he falsely testified he had, but that he did not remember the treatment. No further questions were presented by my counsel. The dentist also performed multiple root canals that were faulty unbeknownst to me that caused serious dental infections and bacterial infections resulting in endocarditis and residual heart valve residuals; however, no x-rays were presented in support of the root canals. I had 39 documented return dental trips that I made to this dentist's office for faulty crowns cracking and falling out, but at no time was this ever discussed with him either. In addition, the dentist placed a dollop of glue on my one implant without connecting it and then placed an open margin bridge over it that resulted in add'l inflamm (pus infection), bone loss, and the implant was left in place but no longer functioning as an implant. This dentist also kept me in temporaries from 2-25-06 until 2009, 2010, and as a result all of my teeth had decay on them. As such, he placed crowns over decay and the crowns had over hanging margins, which resulted in add'l bacterial infections. It should also be noted that this dentist only presented 3 x-rays taken in 2003, 2005, but no x-rays taken after crowns placed. Also, this dentist also alleged all of his laboratory receipts were destroyed by sprinkler system and when Mr. Zinman asked him if he attempted to obtain dup's after being notified of my complaint he stated he had not. Although the burden shld have shifted to the dentist, Mr. Zinman bent over backwrds and agred to obtain records for last 2 years; but,, no recds rec'd. Mr. Zinman also assesed me with med induced xerostomia to lessen the damges, which I do not....just the opposite drool all of time and he dismissed 1/2 of my tx's finding 1-30-06 as the date he fell below standard of care despite the fact it was a false date inserted by the dentist. The def also chargd me more than $60 thous, but falsely testified it was $43,000.

Ed Zinman handled my dental malpractice case. His knowledge is excellent. His legal writing is excellent. He's not one for hand-holding or spending a lot of time comforting a client, but as for expertise and advocacy, I can't complain. Zinman is a dentist and an attorney. He's definitely the go-to-guy for dental malpractice.

Mr. Zinman practices law at a level beyond most of my peers. He is diligent and efficient in his representation of clients. More importantly, his communication skills and ability to respond in a timely manner to any and all requests for information is above and beyond what I have ever experienced with any lawyer. I highly recommend Mr. Zinman and would refer any person injured seeking representation in a medical malpractice or personal injury case in California.

I had the pleasure of working on a dental malpractice case in Virginia with Ed. His experience and expertise both as a lawyer and a dentist were invaluable. We were able to achieve a great result for our client. I would welcome the opportunity to work with again and give him my endorsement. If you have a substantial case you should contact Ed!
