  • Marc,


    Following the reports sent to us by you and Landon regarding the administrative appeal hearing, I had the chance to speak to {the Policyholder} this afternoon on the application of coverage under the Policy. Following that conversation, I asked {the Policyholder} if he was reasonably satisfied with the defense being afforded by your firm. He told me to take out the word reasonably and add “very”.


    {the Policyholder} mentioned that in addition to the result at the hearing, he has been extremely pleased with your firm’s attention to detail. Moreover, he added that as a former CEO that has worked with hundreds of attorneys, he considers your firm to be among the best that he has ever worked with. To us, that is a testimony of very high praise which we were extremely glad to hear.



    Our continued thanks to you, Landon and your team on your results, thus far, on this case. USLI continues to appreciate being a business partner with your firm.

  • Thanks again to you and Alan for your very professional and pragmatic handling of this matter.  I greatly appreciate it. And thanks to Nicholle and Allied World for its professional and seamless support.  Allied and Darwin have done right by me, and it means a lot.  There are less expensive options out there for my coverage, but I KNOW I am getting what I am paying for with Allied; the service and representation have been excellent.

    Thanks again to all! 

    Best regards,

    Mark Alcorn

  • I have had the privilege and pleasure of knowing Alan & Marc for the past four years. Their firm is one of the most recognized and acclaimed defense firms in Los Angeles.  In addition to being attorneys, both Alan and Marc are both authors and speaker on various professional topics.  As a firm, they always go beyond what is required of them and it shows in everything they do. They always put their clients first and it is an honor and my pleasure to recommend them.  Angelo Gioia - Executive Director at Agents of America (Founder and first President of the Professional Liability Underwriting Society).

  • I have had the pleasure of working with Marc and his firm as an Expert witness on several occasions. Each time has been a pleasure to work with a (cost) effective, efficient and knowledgeable law firm. While many profess to know the law and procedure(s), it is quite another talent to know how to close the file. Marc and his Firm know how to do that without throwing money out the window. I heartily recommend him and his firm for the defense of any kind of Professional Liability claim. January 31, 2010

  • Finally, I got the chance to send you a thank you note for all of the effort you  . . .
    put in my case. Your closing argument was amazing. Your expertise and professionalism in the final day delivered the decisive victory for all of us. The seventeen minutes jury deliberation is unforgettable. You are truly the master in the law of business.
    I wish you continued success in the future. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.

  • I would like everyone to know that Marc Zimet did an amazing job for our insured yesterday.  (The insured) failed to pass on a Notice of Claim to its client’s insurer (itself an insurance broker) and was subsequently denied coverage by its prior insurer as a result.

  • Marc and his firm were instrumental in obtaining for us and our investment brokerage, an excellent resolution of what we perceived as a frivolous claim.  Most importantly, he did so quickly so as to protect us personally with respect to FINRA, enabling us to get on with our business.  We recommend Jampol Zimet LLP if you need a FINRA claim resolved well and resolved quickly.

  • Our construction defect/liability team is pleased with the work you have done on their files.   We like attorneys that get to the point of an issue, no matter how complex, boil it down to its points and get it postured for resolution.
