While Zach has drafted hundreds of real estate contracts, leases, operating agreements, LLC agreements, trusts, wills, employment covenants, asset purchase agreements, buy/sell agreements, and other corporate agreements during his career – he understands that no two matters and no two clients are the same and he takes pride in servicing the individual needs of each client and doing so with the professionalism and personal attention they deserve.
