Christian & Small LLP
Partner Paul Zimmerman can relate to his business owner clients. He’s run a business before and knows what it’s like to have every decision you make directly impact others and your ability to provide for your family. That’s why Paul appreciates the trust that clients place in Christian & Small, and approaches each engagement as a partnership between attorney and client because legal issues are also business issues.
Paul formerly taught paramedics. He says his days as an instructor help him talk to juries and people from all walks of life when he’s tried cases in both rural and metro Alabama courtrooms. It’s also helped him develop a better dialogue with firm clients. Paul believes that if he can educate clients about their situation, they will make better decisions, ask better questions, and hopefully, rest easier at night.
Paul is a member of The Sedona Conference Working Group 1 (Electronic Document Retention and Production) and Working Group 11 (Data Security and Privacy Liability), is a former chair of CLM’s eDiscovery and ESI committees, and serves on the firm’s Technology Committee.
