Support from a successful, established South Dakota law firm can make all the difference in your case...

  • You are arrested for DUI in Sioux Falls, and a conviction will cost you your job.
  • A pickup slams in to your car in Dell Rapids, and you are badly hurt.
  • A truck sideswipes your motorcycle on I-90 outside of Mitchell, SD. You won't make it to Sturgis, or even out of the hospital for the next three months.
  • You manage a utility and the local municipalities are stealing your customers.
  • You are a small business owner and a contractor you have already paid refuses to sign a lien waiver.
  • Your mother recently died, and you discover that she changed her will while in a nursing home-leaving her entire estate to a person you have never met.
  • You are an insurance agent or company who is being threatened with sanctions by the Division of Insurance.
  • You are divorcing your spouse and are seeking custody of your children and child suport.

With offices in Sioux Falls and Parker, South Dakota, the attorneys at Zimmer, Duncan and Cole, LLP provide fast, adaptable, approachable, and professional legal services in a variety of practice areas including:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents can be caused by distracted, fatigued, or negligent drivers, bad weather, or poor road conditions. A recent study by the Insurance Research Council estimates that 7 percent of South Dakota drivers are uninsured. A South Dakota Car Accident Attorney can determine who was at fault for your SD auto accident and help you recover appropriate compensation for your losses and injuries.
    • The South Dakota Supreme Court recently determined that the state is not responsible for posting warning signs at dangerous intersections. That means the next mother or father whose child is killed at an improperly posted intersection will need a lawyer willing to take the case back to the Supreme Court.
  • General Business Litigation: If a local municipality, a bank, or another business is dealing with you unfairly or interfering with your ability to run your business, retaining a South Dakota business lawyer may be the best business decision you'll ever make.
  • Family Law:  Family law disputes are emotional and complicated matters.  A family law attorney can help guide you through the legal process and help you resolve your family law issues.
  • Criminal Defense: If you are accused of a crime in South Dakota, can you trust an over-stressed public defense system to provide you with a lawyer, or should you hire a criminal defense attorney with proven case results?
  • Will Contests: What do you do if someone manipulated your aging mother, or tricked your grandfather into signing away his savings? How would you react if someone told a lie that broke the bonds of trust between you and your parents? People do strange things for money, but you know your family best. If you believe that someone used inappropriate influence or tricked your loved one into changing his or her will, contact a South Dakota will contest attorney. 
  • Estate Litigation:  If you believe a will, trust, or other testamentary document will be challenged in South Dakota, and this challenge will impact you, our experienced attorneys can help you through the estate litigation process and protect your beneficiary rights.
  • Wrongful Death Claims:  If you have lost a loved one as a result of another person's misconduct or recklessness you and your family may have a wrongful death claim.  Our attorneys can help you and your family understand your legal rights and get you the answers you deserve.
  • Health and Disability Insurance: Your health and disability insurer refuses to pay policy benefits you are due. Our attorneys have years of experience in making sure that your health and disability insurer pays all of the benefits you are owed.
