Zach is a personal injury attorney at Bachus & Schanker, LLC. Zach grew up in Texas and Tennessee, and he earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin. While at UT Austin, Zach studied philosophy and political science, with a focus on ethics and political theory.
Determined to use his education to help others, Zach moved to sunny Colorado where he attended the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. In law school, Zach participated in several trial advocacy courses and mock trial tournaments in order to improve his advocacy skills. He received multiple commendations for his advocacy in these courses and tournaments, including “Best Advocate” and “Top Ten Advocates.” During his second year of law school, Zach worked as a student attorney at DU Law’s Civil Rights Clinic, where he represented clients whose constitutional rights were violated. While working on complex civil litigation cases, Zach offered oral arguments in federal district court on behalf of his client. As a result of his work in law school, Zach earned a specialized certificate in “Constitutional Rights and Remedies.”
Prior to joining Bachus & Schanker, LLC, Zach worked for a boutique civil rights firm in Denver. During this time, Zach learned a great deal about what it takes to be an effective advocate for persons injured by other individuals and/or governmental agencies. Zach is excited to be able to use these experiences for the benefit of the clients at Bachus & Schanker, LLC.
In his personal time, Zach enjoys playing competitive ping pong, traveling abroad (7 countries and counting!), and riding his bicycle around Denver.
