Spencer Fane attorney Hon. Alvin Zimmerman recently received the 2021 Mediator of the Year Award from the Texas Mediator Credentialing Association (TMCA).
This award recognizes former and current credentialed mediators in Texas who “exemplify the finest qualities one could expect of an outstanding mediator who adheres to the highest level of ethics, and who is dedicated to making extraordinary contributions to the promotion of quality mediation throughout Texas.”
Judge Zimmerman was acknowledged for his dedication to his legal career and his community. He joined the firm in 2019 through the Houston combination and is actively involved in family law as a credentialed distinguished mediator (less than 100 in Texas) by the TMCA. His broad-based legal experience includes presiding as a municipal court judge for the city of Houston and as a district judge of the 269th (Civil) and 309th (Family) District Courts.
In the community, Judge Zimmerman has served on the board of directors of a national bank and was counsel to and on the board of directors of a New York Stock Exchange company. He is also active in many charitable organizations.
