Benjamin Zimmern is an accomplished, zealous attorney who deploys creative techniques to obtain the best possible result for his clients. 

Prior to joining forces with the powerhouse of Alexander Shunnarah Injury Attorneys, he spent 12 years as an insurance defense attorney working for large insurance companies throughout Florida. During this time, he accrued ample courtroom experience and successfully defended clients in numerous jury trials across the state.

After thousands of depositions, hundreds of mediations, and numerous trials, Ben came to the sobering realization that the extensive time put into those cases benefited only corporate shareholders. Winning felt good, but to win meant injured people went without any recovery. 

It was a fortuitous encounter with Alexander Shunnarah, a titan in the legal marketing world, that changed the course of Benjamin’s career. A chance discussion turned into an afternoon-long discussion about the potential of switching sides. The opportunity to fight for accident victims and align with a legal giant was a call Benjamin couldn’t ignore. 

Leaving behind the defense world, where he was a respected member of insurance defense organizations such as the Defense Research Institute (DRI) and Claims & Litigation Management Alliance (CLM), Benjamin embarked on a new journey. His practice now centers on representing individuals who have been seriously injured by negligent individuals and companies. 

With his extensive experience in the insurance industry, Benjamin possesses a wealth of insider knowledge. He knows exactly which arguments and positions are most effective in capturing insurance companies’ attention, and which tactics are futile. This knowledge directly benefits his clients, ensuring a smoother and more expedient recovery process.
