He wrote the 2010 book, "Veterans Aid and Attendance Kit." He is nationally-certified by the Department of Veterans Affairs as an Accredited Veterans Attorney.
The native of Sylacauga, Alabama (1948) was raised in the Sylacauga suburb of Oak Grove where his father, Bloise Zeigler, became a 20-year Mayor.
In 1970, Zeigler was elected President of the Student Government Association of the University of Alabama, defeating the controversial political organization "The Machine."
He was elected to the Alabama Public Service Commission where he served 1975-79. After serving one term on the PSC, Zeigler did not run for re-election. He ran for the Alabama Supreme Court, State Treasurer, Civil Appeals Court, State Board of Education, President of the Public Service Commission and State Auditor, losing each by a narrow margin. He thus earned the nickname "Mr. 49%."
He now (2013) has an elder care law practice representing seniors and veterans in protecting assets and gaining eligibility for elder care costs. He is 2013 state chairman of the League of Senior Voters.
