About me

I take great pride in standing-up for my clients and obtaining outstanding results.


I founded The Law Offices of Zachary North because I’m dedicated to helping people through what are often among the worst events of their lives. When, through no fault of their own, people suffer traumatic brain or spinal damage, serious injuries, or even the death of a family member, the road to recover can be long and fraught with financial as well as physical and emotion obstacles. I can help. The insurance companies make their money in part by squeezing victims of car accidents, negligence, and crimes out of the compensation they deserve. I know how to fight back. Let me fight for you.


My dedication to helping people extends beyond fighting for victims against big insurance companies. I also defend people against the biggest opponent of them all: the government. It’s an unfortunate reality that innocent people are charged with crimes everyday. Far too many simply capitulate to the State and plea guilty. At The Law Offices of Zachary North, that’s not good enough. I know how to fight back. Let me fight for you.


Before opening my own firm, I defended the less fortunate citizens of Henry and Clayton County as an indigent defender. I intentionally maintains a limited caseload, so that I can maintain the extremely high professional standards, which lead to the best possible results.


With my clients, I strive to be compassionate, knowledgeable, and approachable. In court, I employ a combination of cutting-edge, modern advocacy and time-honored logical, emotional, and personal persuasive techniques. My first priority is always protecting his clients’ rights and fighting for them like no one else can.

    Zach is an excellent lawyer! He is very experienced in the area of Criminal Law and knows the Judges and Courts very well. I trust that he is able to negotiate a favorable "plea bargain" and I am confident that he can "try a case" if necessary.

    Zach is a great attorney and a great person. He served as a mock trial coach/professor at Emory during my time in the program. Zach is very knowledgable about the law and is an amazing orator. He is also someone I always consult when looking for professional advice about my own career.
