I have a client who is a law firm.  They do some work with unions and healthcare.  Frequently, they'll get emails from users who will send SSN numbers and other healthcare info via email.  Since the lawyers at the firm get their email on smartphones, they wanted to know if there was some way to get that sensitive information to NOT sync up with their phones.

They're using Exchange 2010 SP2.  Their smartphones are a mix of IPhone, Droids, and BBs.  But they will be migrating to all IPhones by the end of the year.

I've been doing research online and find various inbound compliance software such as Zix but haven't found anything concrete and was just wondering if someone knew something off the bat that would help.

You are along the correct path.
ZIX is an excellent product and for your situation, something should be implemented sooner than later.
There are plenty of companies that offer similar services, you just have to decide which fits within your budget.
Sensitive data should never be sent unencrypted these days and it won't take long for someone to find them and use it against you.

Voltage is another product that offers similar services.

Another thing you want to consider is even allowing this data to be emailed unencrypted.
Sophos makes a product that helps protect you from sending this data.
