I cannot thank you enough for the thorough and comprehensive attention and support you have provided regarding my case. You have proven to me what victory really means.

Excellent, low-cost traffic Attorney
After my mother got in an accident and was cited by the police for failure to maintain her lane, Mr. Zimmerman got the citation dismissed within a few months and handled everything for only $200. He grasped the facts quickly, identified the logical weaknesses in the state's case, and developed a strategy that got the case dismissed before the trial even began. He was always professional and well-prepared and did most of the work behind the scenes, so that we were spared virtually all the trouble usually associated with litigation. My only complaint is that he involved us so little that we sometimes grew concerned about the status of the case (we often would not hear a word from him until the day before a hearing). But once we were in court he would walk us through everything he had done and planned and the results turned out even better than we had hoped.

Awesome Attorney
Attorney Zimmerman really made my son and I very comfortable. The things that we didn't understand he broke it down to us especially to my 15 year old son. My son Tyler is very shy and Ian was able to get through to him.

I went to this lawyer after an auto mobile accident. I was pretty upset because I felt the accident could have been avoided. He immediately made an appointment with me and put me and my family at ease by accepting the case straight away. He was very clear about the whole process and kept the communication lines open.
