The Firm

Zemanek & Mills 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 legal budget and to devise the best method of achieving those goals.

For example:
