Summary

Russell D. Zimberlin always wanted to be a lawyer standing up for people who grievously suffered physically and financially by careless individuals. This is why Russell is especially honored to be a part of the Zimberlin Law LLC team, representing claimants in Veterans Disability, Connecticut State Employee Disability Retirement, Social Security Disability/SSI, and ERISA/Non-ERISA based Long-Term Disability Insurance plans. At the firm, Russ works very hard in all stages of litigation trying to achieve optimal results for his clients, all while keeping them informed throughout the process. Russell’s solid work ethic and passion for the law was evident in school, where he graduated from New England Law | Boston near the top of his class and earned Dean’s list honors every semester. Hitting the books, however, couldn’t keep Russell out of the court room, where he was exposed to high stakes litigation and trials both as a law clerk and during his hands on clinic work. In his spare time, Russell can be found exploring Hartford and taking in the City’s diverse culture and character (not to mention all the great food). Russell also enjoys watching sports, playing basketball, hiking, biking, reading, and has completed a marathon. Finally, Russell tries to give back to the community by providing pro bono legal representation, guest speaking to fellow attorneys and the general population about issues impacting disability law. Russell stays engaged in the community by being a member of the Hartford County Bar Association, the Connecticut Bar Association, the Manchester Bar Association.
