ZACH JACKSON LAW PROVIDES EXPERIENCED LEGAL GUIDANCE IN THE AREAS OF FAMILY LAW AND ESTATE PLANNING.

Zachary D. Jackson graduated from the University of North Carolina School of Law.  Prior to attending Law School, Mr. Jackson graduated Magna Cum Laude from Campbell University where he majored in Business Administration with a Specialty in Trust and Investment Management and minored in Financial Planning.  Mr. Jackson also received his Masters in Business Administration from Campbell University.

Mr. Jackson worked for several years as a Trust Officer with Bank of America prior to attending law school.  Prior to opening his own law practice, Mr. Jackson worked with two law firms and held an internship with North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Sarah Parker.

Since graduating from Law School, Mr. Jackson has focused primarily on Family Law, Estate Planning, and Estate Administration.  Mr. Jackson recognizes that Family Law matters can be extremely emotional.  Therefore, he strives to develop strong relationships with his clients so he can understand their situation and fight zealously for their best interests.

When dealing with estate planning matters, Mr. Jackson prides himself in formulating estate plans specific to the clients’ unique situation.  Mr. Jackson also believes that it is imperative that the attorney drafting these documents has experience administering these plans.  This will ensure that the plan meets the clients’ needs and that the plan is practical to administer.

Through his education and experiences in Family Law, Estate Planning, and Estate Administration, Mr. Jackson has formed strong opinions on what is necessary in order to ensure his clients are receiving optimal service.  When he opened his own law practice, it was his mission to ensure the service his clients received was exceptional.

“When I decided to open my own law practice, it was my goal to give my clients something that no one else was offering.  I wanted to minimize unnecessary overhead to ensure my clients were getting an exceptional value.  I wanted to develop personal relationships with my clients, so I knew exactly what they hoped to accomplish.  When my clients had questions or concerns, I wanted them to have access to me, rather than an associate or paralegal.  I wanted them to know that I was fighting zealously in order to accomplish their goals.  It brings me a great since of pride knowing that my law office is consistently fulfilling these goals.”

Phenomenal Counsel in a Tough Situation
I work with more attorneys than 99% of the population due to my business as a legal recruiter. Zach was excellent in his representation as well as efficient with his time. He even itemized down to 10 minute or .1 increments which shows grace. He is accessible on his cell, email and in person, even when I had to pop in a couple times. He was consultative and compassionate during the hardest time of my life. He transitioned me gracefully post retainer to self assistance and gave me financial tips like exploring a QDRO (retirement) payment to my beautiful wife I love.

Great custody lawyer
I contacted Zach Jackson in 2018 about child custody. Zach was very thorough, well-educated, well-mannered, and helpful throughout the whole process. I was able to get full custody of my child and just this year he Zach assisted in getting a termination of parental rights on the other parent. We won the case. He did a great job and I am so happy that I decided to go with him in assisting with child custody. He knows the ins and outs of law and I am completely satisfied with the outcome of this all. 100% recommend Zach Jackson.

Great custody lawyer
Zach Jackson is a great, down to earth guy. He did exactly what he said he was going to do, when he said he would, and had no problem responding quickly to my questions. I had an unusual situation and three other lawyers wanted four times the amount for a retainer that Mr. Jackson did. He even came in under the retainer I paid. Great guy to talk talk to and work with. I would highly recommend him.

A Miracle from God
Zach's experience and case law knowledge saved me and my son from a lengthy custody battle. He saved me from a lot of needless emotional distress and has kept me united with my child. I am so blessed he represented me.

Thankful to have found the very best lawyer in NC
After consulting with 2 other lawyers, my husband and I made the wisest decision to enlist the legal counsel of Zachary Jackson. Our case was very long and procedurally difficult; yet Mr Jackson proved to be the most competent in every legal aspect of any attorney we could have chosen. He is kind, humble, caring and yet smarter than smart on every legal issue. He leaves no stone unturned in fighting for accuracy of the law. His honesty and integrity were evident in everything we faced. We won our court battle that was at times arduous thanks to Mr Jackson's tenacity in studying all relevent legal cases so that we had the best of legal counsel. We will always recommend and personally use Mr Jackson for any and all other legal matters. His paralegal assistant's excellence makes Zachary Jackson Law the best in NC!

Best Lawyer in union cty!!!!!
Having to hire an attorney is a scary process. I had never had to hire an attorney ever nor had I ever been in court. I interviewed 2 other attorneys before meeting with Mr Jackson. He explained everything the good and the bad. Zach jackson listens and for over a year he worked hard on my divorce and child custody case. No one prepares you for the legal system. Nothing friends or relatives tell you is how your case will unfold. Zach is an attorney that cares about his clients best interests. If you listen to his advice and follow his direction I can promise you the best Lawyer in Union county and personally the best Lawyer anywhere. He has the best paralegal too. Working with both of them was easy. They care about their clients and will do everything for you to protect and help you in whatever situation your in. The best thing about Zach is hes honest! Hes nit a lawyer that sugar coats. He doesn't tell you what you want to hear. He tells you what you NEED to hear and prepare for!

Amazing, Compasionate, Caring, and Knowledgable!
Zach Jackson was referred to me by my family with raving reviews. My situation was very unique and I was nervous that I wouldn't be able to find a lawyer that could help in time, but with Zach, he was efficient, knowledge, and most of all personable and compassionate to my situation!!

Excellence
When I first called Zach's office, he made himself available that same day for an initial phone consultation. Once we spoke, I knew immediately that this was going to be my attorney. Zach was knowledgeable, professional and personable. He did not rush our meeting, was a good listener and was empathetic. Because I was out of the area, we had to correspond via phone and e-mail, with a three hour time difference. Zach always made himself available. He provided me with his cell phone number and always returned phone calls and e-mails in a timely manner. Throughout my case, Zach was informative, supportive and always took the time to answer my questions and address my concerns. He was proactive and always had a plan for the next step in the process. Zach maintained regular contact and provided continuous updates. He really put me at ease throughout a stressful and uncertain time in my life. Zach explained how he wanted to proceed in my case and, since I had complete trust in him, it resulted in a very favorable outcome for me. I was very blessed to have found Zach in my time of need. He is a man of integrity who is making a difference in the lives of his clients. Zach is honest, ethical and trustworthy. He truly loves his work and is in it for the right reason.

Zach Jackson - An Attorney who cares, is extremely knowledgeable, and provides solid guidance/advice.
My husband and I hired Zach to represent us on two very difficult, tough and emotional issues. Zach listened, cared and was with us through every heartbreaking step of the process. Zach knows the law and speaks up for his clients, but he is also an honorable man who understands the emotions involved in legal situations. His knowledge of the law and issues is unprecedented. He provided us with all information and thorough explanations to help us to understand all facets of the process and outcomes, which enabled us to make informed decisions. A lot of Attorneys simply deal with the legalities of a situation, but Zach recognizes the "human" side of things too. He approaches each situation with honor and grace, and we were very pleased that he was representing us. Zach is an attorney that you can trust. Without hesitation, my husband and I would and do recommend Zach Jackson.

The Best Custody Lawyer
I met with three attorneys before I met with Mr. Jackson. None of them knew what to do, but two of them suggested that we meet with Mr. Jackson. It did not take long to see why he was so highly recommended. Mr. Jackson put a plan in place at our initial consultation. We followed his advice, and in a short period of time, he got us everything that we wanted. From start to finish, we could not have been more impressed. If you have a complex custody case, you will not regret hiring Mr. Jackson.
