Our firm’s purpose is simple–to be the voice of those who are injured by fraud, negligence or other illegal conduct. At Zimmerman Reed we stand by our clients with dedication, purpose, and integrity. We understand that it’s not important to make history with each case. You are what’s important. Your case is our cause and we stand firmly behind doing what’s necessary to make things right for your situation.

Zimmerman Reed was founded in 1983. We’ve tailored our thinking to meet the needs of our clients and the public. We bring an intuitive understanding of our clients’ difficulties to our approach. Legal problems can and do affect all aspects of a client’s life or business. At times these problems may seem insurmountable. We understand that. It’s our goal to stand with you, find solutions for your problem and move forward.

With our attorneys’ diverse backgrounds and interests, we combine sophistication, perspective, and skill. Most of all, we approach each issue with an open mind. Our unique environment allows the development of fresh, new approaches to legal problems in an atmosphere where people enjoy their work, respect their clients, and above all, get the job done right.
