The personal injury attorneys of Zinda Law Group have built an outstanding record of success by bringing extensive experience, thorough preparation, and aggressive representation to all our cases.
We are proud of the verdicts and settlements that we have achieved for our deserving clients. The following is a sample of just some of the results our firm has helped obtain on behalf of individuals and families.
Where are the amounts? We leave out the amount of our settlements because we believe it can be misleading. Every case is different, and it is impossible to base your recovery on someone else’s. Only after a thorough investigation can an attorney even begin to give you an idea of what you may be entitled to under the law.
