Results at a Higher Standard™


The best way to be a strong advocate is to lose yourself in the service of others.

“Whether a business entity, an organization or an individual, my primary purpose is to protect my client. This includes their financial and personal interests, as well as their reputation”

Successful litigation requires strategy, planning, and the ability to adapt on the fly. My diverse background has prepared me to serve my clients and represent their interests through this unpredictable process in order to achieve the results they deserve.

“As a young attorney, I was greeted warmly by lawyers I had never met because I was working for Zimmer Kunz. I consider it my responsibility to maintain that stellar reputation.”

“At the heart of the solutions we provide is our ability to build genuine relationships – with the client, the courts, and ultimately, the jury.”

Before I was an attorney, I was responsible for retaining attorneys—I always keep the client’s goals and expectations at the forefront when litigating their interests.

My goal in every matter is to work as a partner with my client to achieve the most desired outcome.

- Joseph R. Petrina, Member

“I don’t practice law from up on a pedestal. I want to know the facts of your case, your concerns, desired outcomes and goals. I am your partner.”

- Jeff Ramaley, Member

Representing our clients is a privilege that I do not take lightly. Therefore, it is my goal in every case to provide my full attention and dedication to achieve the best result possible.

The decisions lawyers make throughout the course of litigation often not only impact the case, but affect the lives and businesses of their clients. I always keep that in mind when representing my clients.

“Perhaps the most important attribute we offer our clients is persistence. When we accept the representation of a client, our commitment is to see the matter through to the end.”

I never forget that for my clients, time is money. I always work hard to not only get my clients the best result, but to do so as expeditiously as possible.
