Why Hire A Small Lawfirm?

You have probably heard this before, but the “you are not just a number” phrase has never been more important than when you are facing criminal charges. Throughout the entire legal process, you will have numerous questions or concerns regarding your situation or the current status of the case. Many times those questions come after-hours or on the weekends. Clients of Shimer Zach will always have access to our two attorneys during these trying times. We pride ourselves on the fact that we are always just a phone call away!

A larger firm has many lawyers—this can lead to more items falling through the cracks because no single attorney feels responsible for your case. However, the “that is not my client-not my responsibility” mentality does not occur at Shimer Zach. We aggressively defend each and every case with two lawyers, John Shimer, Esq. and Terry Jones-Zach, Esq. Both of us meet with you personally every time; we know your file, your defenses, and will always be willing to answer any questions you may have.

Shimer Zach feels strongly that our small firm, hands-on approach is the only business model that that truly works to maximize results for our clients! Lawyers and the support staff need to be working on the same page with one another—knowing the case files, the upcoming dates and preparing the cases as if each one of them are going to trial. There is no other way to run a successful criminal defense firm!
