    Mr Zelman is an awesome lawyer whom is dedicated to satisfying his clients. I have a long criminal history background. I consulted with other lawyers bedore going to Mr Zelman, due to my background other lawyers were talking down to me due to my extensive criminal history. Gratefully I found Mr Zelman (one of God's angels) he assured me that he could help me and he would be glad to take my case. I was informed of everything that was discussed about my case. True man of his WORDS, thanks JDZ.

    Zelman really went above and beyond to ensure that my end goals with my charges were met. I'm a broke college student, and he really worked with me on the price and payment plans, always kept me in the loop about what was going on, held an open line of communication, and was overall just really down to earth. He's a hard worker and does what he says he's going to do. I had friends refer me to him, & I'm really happy that I chose him to represent me as he was more that successful in doing so.

    I retained Zelman under flat fee for a toxicology VOP. Zelman failed to review law, procedures, or even contact the toxicology company. Zelman cancelled all court dates until receiving an additional $1500 to hire a toxicologist, yet the toxicology company offered an expert for $100 who conceded that the test was invalid. Zelman was fired, I represented myself and had probation reinstated. Even the probation officer testified that the test was invalid. Zelman made the experience 10x worse.
