He went on to earn his Juris Doctorate in 2014 from the University of Alabama School of Law. While in law school, Zach was on the managing board of the Alabama Law Review, and was a member of the school's ABA National Moot Court competition team and Campbell Moot Court Board. Since joining the firm in 2014, Zach has litigated cases across the state involving personal injury, trucking accidents, car accidents, motorcyle accidents, workers' compensation, breach of contract, and real estate litigation.
