Walter C. Zaremba began his legal career in 1993 as a General Practice Attorney concentrating on estate planning, contract law, business organization and domestic relations.
Walt's legal practice has evolved into a firm which dedicates itself to Estate Planning and Elder Law. The firm's mission is to ensure that clients are provided with an estate plan that "works." In other words, the firm is committed to creating an estate plan, tailored to the individual client that enables the client, not the court system or governmental bureaucracies, to stay in control of their health and wealth regardless of their current and future circumstances.
In 1995, Walt was elected to serve his community as a member of the York County Board of Supervisors serving the citizens of the first district. He is now in his fifth four year term. Walt considers himself privileged to serve the citizens of York County which includes the town of Yorktown where America's freedom was won on October 19, 1781. He is immensely proud to be of service in assisting to shape the future of this American Legacy.
After high school, Walt enlisted in the United States Army and rose through the ranks from Private to Colonel. He was a Special Forces (Green Beret) Officer during his first combat tour to Vietnam in 1966. During his second combat tour to Vietnam in 1970, he served as the Operations Officer of a Direct Support Artillery Battalion. He is a much decorated Officer; awarded both the National Distinguished Services Medal as well as the Purple Heart. His overseas tours, in addition to Vietnam, included assignments to Germany, Italy, Korea and Somalia. He is a graduate of the Command and General Staff College and the Army War College.
