Testimonials


Our firm has had the privilege of working with four generations of one family, and two or three generations of many other families. These long term relationships reflect our clients’ trust in us and our ongoing commitment to our clients.

Because of our independent consultative approach, we act in an advisory capacity to many CPAs, attorneys and financial advisors. We believe our clients are best served when their legal, tax, financial and insurance advisors work as a team to best meet our clients’ needs.

 

 

 

"THE REVIEW AND RESULTING REPORT WAS WORTH THE INVESTMENT OF TIME AND DOLLARS"

"We were fortunate enough to engage you in a review of our life insurance policy portfolio.  This was brought on by some level of concern over the financial stability of some of the insurance companies…We were, I think, fortunate to have done this and to have chosen your company to perform this work for us.  I found the quality of the review to be detailed and extremely professional.

We will probably want to go through this review process from time to time going forward and we look forward to continuing to work with The Zimdars Company as we do this.  The review and the resulting report was worth the investment of time and dollars that we put into this project and has elicited information that will assist us going forward.  We are most appreciative of this fine effort."

“HIS CONSULTING SERVICES...SAVED MY CLIENTS SIGNIFICANT SUMS IN LIFE INSURANCE COSTS”

“John Zimdars and I worked closely to develop a presentation to the State Bar of Wisconsin entitled, “The Lawyer's Guide To Understanding Life Insurance.” This presentation was televised to attorneys statewide and was very well received. In helping to develop this program, John demonstrated his knowledge of life insurance policy designs, and their strengths, weaknesses and appropriate uses. His consulting services to me and my clients have saved my clients significant sums in life insurance costs.”
