About Our Team
Packaged Intelligence to Protect Your Win
Zimmerman and Sanchez Information Group first started working together in 2013 for Dorothy Sims’ Ocala firm. As a result, we worked together on refining and creating a meticulous checklist of online and offline resources to search and analyze.
The idea of starting our company grew from the drive to build on our prior successes working with firms across the U.S.
On the way to our first speaking event, we coined "...packaged intelligence to protect your win." Since then, we've attended several events and have spoken on our 'lessons learned' from our past decade in research work.
Andrew Zimmerman, Co-Founder
Andrew first started researching legal experts in 2006 while attending St. John's University. After graduating in 2008 he enlisted in the U.S. Army - serving in the Military Intelligence Corp - further strengthening his analytic methods and processes.
After two tours overseas, with a strong analytical and investigative background, Andrew worked with Attorney Dorothy Sims on developing and perfecting a method to validate individuals and their credentials. These techniques continue to inspire law firms and state organizations.
Since founding Z&S Information Group in late 2015, and serving on three more tours, Andrew and his partner grew a national clientele and nation-wide awareness of using publicly available information to vet employees, witnesses, and experts. He currently aspires to complete a Master’s in Data Science.

Javier Sanchez has a degree in Business Administration. In 2019 he obtained a Cybersecurity degree from the University of South Florida through a scholarship sponsored by the National Security Agency.
