If you’re involved in a motor vehicle accident and suffer an injury, your legal rights may be the furthest thing from your mind. You may be confused about your next steps, and you may not realize how important your early actions are to a legal settlement later.

Zhivov is a Russian surname meaning “life,” according to Mr. Vladimir Zhivov. While Russians have no problem spelling and pronouncing the word, it is a difficult name for many native English-speakers. From “Zivov” and “Zeevov” to “Zhibob” and “Zibob,” our managing counsel’s last name is frequently misspelled… “Zihov,” “Shivov,” “Shibob,” “Zhikov,” “Zikov,” “Shish kebab.” And how do you pronounce that? (He gets that a lot.) In English, it is pronounced “Zi-vahv.” That is “Zi” as in “Zip.”
