I founded THE ZIMMER LAW FIRM in June 1993, to practice in the areas of Estate Planning, Estate Administration, and Business Succession Planning. My goal was and continues to be helping clients understand and de-mystify the often confusing world of Estate Planning in an ever-changing society, and to implement effective Estate Planning with minimal effort and time investment. The firm works from the belief that planning should always be driven by purpose. As a result, there are no “canned” or pre-set planning solutions. Instead, I help clients identify their goals first and then build estate and business plans based on that understanding. I have been in private practice since receiving my law degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Law in 1979. I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree from U.C. with Honors, Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa, in 1976. I was profiled in the 1990-1991 edition of Who’s Who in American Law for contribution to the betterment of contemporary society, and had lectured numerous times on legal topics, and authored several articles and Special Reports on Estate Planning. I am a former guest columnist on Simply Money, on 91.7 FM, WVXU. I make occasional guest appearances on radio about estate planning topics, and have been quoted in newspaper articles and columns on Estate Planning matters.
