Zack concentrates his practice in the areas of criminal defense, government investigations, criminal and civil appeals, victims’ rights, and general litigation and dispute resolution. I represent clients facing charges ranging from misdemeanors to serious felonies. He is also passionate about representing individuals injured by others, whether the injury is financial or the result of a violent crime.
