Throughout the litigation process, Zack works closely with clients in order to develop a defense strategy, and he ensures that they remain well-informed and up to speed as their case develops.
Prior to joining von Briesen, Zack practiced as a civil defense litigator in a Milwaukee-based law firm, where he was able to hone his litigation skills and gain a risk-averse perspective that helps shape how he counsels clients. In law school, Zack served as an editor on the Marquette Law Review, and he was a three-time recipient of the CALI-Award for Excellence for his strong academic performance.
