Recent Testimonial

I won my Case against  ACC. What a huge relief after so long. I would like to thank you so much for your hard work in this.

Client Testimonial, November 2015

Sorry meant to also say that I would be only too happy to provide a testimonial for Zindel's website if required.  Regardless of the outcome next week you have done a really good job of being responsive to emails and questions and have taken the time to really listen to what we wanted.  You may hear it often and it may sound trite – but it actually does make a huge difference when you are sitting in the position that we are.

I can endorse this action, I have worked with Steve on many cases and he is excellent, very bright and very nice to deal with... Initially it will be sufficient to send him my summary with your notations on it and see what Steve says.
Client Testimonial, June 2014

Further to our recent telephone discussion I have spoken to Steven Zindel a Nelson solicitor who indicated that he would be willing to take X's case on Legal Aid. As I indicated to you, I do not do civil legal aid work. Steven is a good sort and is a partner at Zindels Solicitors .
