Zack is an associate in the firm’s litigation practice group. He has litigated on behalf of a broad spectrum of clients, from individuals in business or property disputes to agricultural businesses, restaurants, and banks. He handles a wide variety of matters, including contract and real estate disputes, employment disputes and labor law compliance lawsuits, corporate and partnership dissolutions, trademark and copyright disputes, trade secret cases, administrative hearings and appeals, and writ petitions. His analytical abilities have contributed to victories from temporary injunctive relief to summary judgment.

Zack received his J.D. magna cum laude from Washington University School of Law in St. Louis and was named a member of the Order of the Coif and the Order of Barristers. While in law school, he worked as a certified law student at the St. Louis County Public Defender’s Office, where he successfully argued that a felony burglary charge should be dismissed for lack of probable cause, after questioning witnesses during a preliminary hearing. Before working for the Public Defender, Zack was a summer law clerk for the Honorable Steven Ohmer of the 22nd Judicial Circuit of Missouri.

Zack was also chosen to represent WashU Law as a member of the National Moot Court Team. His team competed in the 2016-17 American Bar Association National Appellate Advocacy Competition, where they defeated the reigning national champions before being eliminated. Prior to that, Zack won the 2016 Wiley Rutledge Intramural Moot Court Competition, after finishing as a semifinalist in the 2015 Wiley Rutledge Intramural Moot Court Competition.

Outside of work, Zack enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, playing and watching sports, and exploring Sacramento. He has competed at the ultimate frisbee club national championships five times.
