The best legal team ever!

avvo-badgeAfter doing extensive research and my due diligence to find the right firm for me, Todd J Zimmer and Associates was 100% the right decision. I intially spoke with Todd who was sincere and sympathetic to my situation being I had a premature daughter and was heading into a custody battle. He said that his associate Stephanie Mathiesen would be representing me and assured me she is GREAT at what she does! I could write over and over praise for Stephanie, but for me the fact that my family and friends whom have stood by me during this difficult time have basically looked at Stephanie as a apart of my family instead of just being my lawyer. She has a passion and drive to do what is right for her clients, she has a amazing way of taking a hectic situation and pacifying it with out diminishing its seriousness. She has firey way about her and gets it DONE! She’s responds to all my emails and phone calls ASAP. All these stories and negative stigmas about attorneys are with out a doubt negated by Stephanie and the Zimmer Firm.

avvo-badgeWhen dealing with the many unexpected twists and turns of a divorce, you need a law firm that is able to explain it all to you. Todd Zimmer and his staff were ever ready to respond to my questions and concerns. Todd emailed me himself on several occasions after 1 in the morning just to make sure I understood the next step. He walked me through the process, helped me feel at ease, and ultimately got me everything I needed in my settlement. He has even been available to answer questions and assist me after my divorce was finalized.
