Client Testimonials

“There ARE Some Really Honest, Helpful Lawyers!”


“Over the past six years Jack has helped my husband and I with several legal matters. Dealing with insurance companies can be a nightmare. Jack and his firm cut through all of the red tape and we were able to receive an equitable settlement for an automobile accident that paid our medical bills and gave us some breathing room financially. He also helped us navigate the murky waters of a civil lawsuit dealing with some family property. We have trust his ethics and have never had a phone call go unanswered. Jack was empathetic and professional. I have recommended him to friends and coworkers and wouldn’t hesitate to call him again for any legal issues that occur.”

“Caring And Passionate There For The Tears And Heartache”


“Over the past 3 years, Jack and the staff of Zinda Law Group, became part of my family and my life. The care and passion that they showed (expressed) to me and my husband was like no other. Jack was an attorney that was there for the tears and heartache. Jack always had a positive word or expression and Jenni his paralegal is a God Send.”

“My Experience with Jack was Amazing!”


“My experience with Jack Zinda was amazing! He and his staff kept me informed about dealing with the insurance company for the other driver- I would have been at a loss to do it myself. Right through to the settlement of my case, I felt I had the advice I needed to make good decisions. There was more than 100% effort made on my behalf. I hope I am never in another accident, but if it happens again – I wouldn’t go anywhere else and I recommend them to others. I can’t even say how I appreciate their help.”
