what our clients have said

I worked with Paul Zimmerman and was very pleased with the work that he did. I have worked with a number of lawyers over the years and I found that he was professional, efficient, knowledgeable, and even supporting and thoughtful. I appreciated his attention to detail, even years later when I had a question about the case. I would highly recommend Paul and this firm to anyone who needs legal representation for a custody/family court case.
