AVVO Reviews

Zach made an effort to understand all the details of my case. He has a high level of integrity and empathy which is not common in the field. He is very knowledgeable and explains the process in a straightforward way instead of making it more confusing. He is good at building a solid strategy while being able to pivot if he’s thrown a curve ball. I was glad that it was him sitting next to me when my divorce was final.

Zach represented me in a difficult collaborative divorce in 2015. He consistently projected a calm, professional attitude and was very responsive to my communications with him. I appreciated his excellent mediation skills with a “high conflict” former spouse, as well as his active and empathic listening skills with me. His years of experience were evident as he led the collaborative team. I find him to be trustworthy and of high moral character. In the end, my divorce experience was actually empowering, and I have Zach to thank. The divorce was finalized in about 6 months, with only one court date.

I hired Zachary after firing my first lawyer 2 years after my then husband served me my papers. Zach was very patient, knowledgeable and honest. He is always available. He returns phone calls and emails as soon as possible. I wish I had him working on my case since the beginning. I believe I would have received a much lesser desirable and a very unfair judgment, had I not hired Zach to do my fighting for me towards the end of my process. Recently, a year after my divorce came to an end, I had a question. I sent an email to Zach. He replied to my email as well as called me. That shows great character. My children and I will always be grateful.
