Zemanek & Mills is a law firm that holds an A-V rating in the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory, the highest rating for both legal skills and ethical standards.
The firm prides itself on being legal and business counselors in the fullest sense. Personal attention from the two members is foremost.
The firm strategizes with its clients to determine the clients’ goals and to devise the best method of achieving those goals.
Since this firm’s founding more than twenty-five years ago, the two mainstays of our practice have been our role as genuine counselors for our clients and an unswerving focus on skilled advocacy that achieves results.
How Business Creates Value:
Each of our attorneys brings several decades of legal experience, expertise and acumen to bear, but we also bring a fresh, vigorous and hands-on approach to the unique circumstances and objectives of each client.
For litigation matters, our work starts the first time the client walks through the door, and begins with total listening and calm reflection. Who is the client and what is the true nature of the conflict? What are the risks and rewards of alternative approaches? This involves actively listening to the client, mapping out a well-considered strategy that meets the client’s true goals and objectives and then applying focus, creativity, and drive in making them a reality.
We bring this same incisive and balanced approach to sophisticated business and real estate transactional work, the latter involving developers and investors in every stage of acquisition, financing, planning, development, operation and disposition of real estate assets. The quality of our transactional work is enhanced by litigation experience that gives us insight into how deals can be negotiated, structured and drafted to avoid disputes down the road.
Frequently our litigation adversaries – and counterparts in transactional matters — are much larger law firms. Who has the advantage? We do. Typically our client pays for a single, experienced attorney with whom the client has a personal connection, and who knows both the big picture and all the details of your case or transaction. This keeps us agile and adept. On top of that, our attorneys — with decades of experience working together — have developed a synergy that greatly multiplies their individual effectiveness and gives them a real edge over many practice groups found in much larger firms.
