  • Douglas Alan Funkhouser

    I endorse this lawyer. Zach and I worked on a very complicated rape case last year. Together we were able to obtain a not guilty for our client. He has great instinct about criminal defense matters and is a natural in the courtroom. I look forward to working with him again in the future.
