Defending Florida’s Injured for More Than 20 Years

At Baker & Zimmerman, every employee is a dedicated member of the team whose primary concern is defending the injured and seeking justice on behalf of our clients. We understand that no two cases are alike; therefore, no two cases are prepared the same way.

We strongly believe that the key to a successful attorney/client relationship is communication. We pride ourselves in keeping our clients informed as to the progress of their case and making ourselves available whenever necessary.

We believe in a team approach, which typically includes an assigned attorney, as well as a paralegal and legal assistant to ensure that all cases have appropriate personnel focused on the goal at hand. Our entire staff believes that the best results are obtained through good, old fashioned hard work.
