What Our Clients Say
After knowing Jeff (Blankenship) for many years and overpaying for legal services to gain custody of my kids, I finally gave Jeff a try. Jeff was able to save me money and complete the task of gaining custody of my kids. Now, years later, he is always attentive to my calls and treats me like a friend instead of just a client. Highly recommend, and my only regret was not hiring him earlier.
Matt (Smith) was friendly and professional. The office staff were helpful and friendly. I would certainly recommend and use the firm’s services again.
I just wanted to say how much I appreciated all the hard work Matt Smith and his associates did on my behalf. The compassion everyone showed was amazing and comforting! I will highly recommend Ziegler & Schneider to all my family and friends. Thanks again!
Thank you for the excellent preparation work by Jessica (Wehrman) and the efficient closing process with you, Catherine (Stavros).
It has been a pleasure working with Matthew Smith on several estate planning/trust matters over the course of the past two years. Matthew is very knowledgeable and diligent in representing his clients.
I’ve known Jeff (Blankenship) for many years. When I started going through my divorce, he was the first I reached out to. To my surprise, his first advice was to try to repair the marriage, if at all possible. Unfortunately, that was not an option, but Jeff stuck by my side and helped me through all the emotional and financial burden that a divorce can place on you. He was even able to get creative with the payment options, which was an enormous help in such a financially stressful time. Our friendship has only grown from this experience, and we continue to work together even though my divorce is finalized.
I’ve had the pleasure of working on a case with Matt for the last year. He is as professional as they come, very bright, and very deliberate in his words and actions. You can count on him to provide sound, well-reasoned advice. He has a cool, calm, relaxed temperament as well. He is a highly respected and highly skilled advocate.
Matt and I have been working together for several years, and I have had the pleasure of assisting his clients on several intellectual property matters. Matt is a true professional with a passion for helping his clients. His bedside manner is superb as is his intellect and knowledge of the law. I highly recommend Matt and his firm.
Matt Smith and the team Z&S Law have been tremendous in helping my business and family thru a 2-year transition phase, their response time has been impeccable! I would highly recommend Matt Smith and his team at Z&S for all business and personal legal needs.
Jeff (Blankenship) and his team are amazing! From the moment they became involved in my son’s case, all I had to worry about was getting him the treatment he needed. Every step was explained, and every problem was handled. They made us feel more like family than a case or number.
Awesome attorneys! Staff is superb. Could not ask for any better!
If anyone needs a competent, honest, and knowledgeable lawyer then Jeff Blankenship is your man. I was going to lose my case in court until Jeff Blankenship became my lawyer. He turned everything around and saved the day. He is wise beyond his years and has extensive knowledge of the law and the capability to argue it well before the judge with good character, which is so rare in this day and age, and amazing reasoning. He works hard for his clients and has a brilliant mind that knows what to present to the judge and exactly how to word it. I cannot say enough good about this man. He is truly one of the greatest lawyers, in my opinion, of all time!
Michael Baker is a wonderful lawyer for bankruptcy issues. He really helps the consumer through the bankruptcy with dignity.
Matt (Smith) was prompt, professional, and resolved a last-minute legal issue for my company perfectly. I was pressed for time, and needed a quick resolution to a situation. Matt reviewed the matter via email, and within a few hours responded with an amazingly on-point analysis and recommended an effective course of action. I was fortunate to have been referred to him, and highly recommend him for business law.
Matt (Smith) helped my mother update her estate documents following a series of medical issues. He was kind, patient, and compassionate. He listened to her desires, clearly explained her options, and prepared the requested documents in a timely manner. He reviewed exactly what was being implemented with direct and understandable language. My mother was pleased with Matt’s caring professionalism and that her end-of-life wishes would be honored.
