About Zachary Shewmaker

About me

I am a trial lawyer who represents individuals who have suffered injuries or death because of the negligent acts or omissions of others. I pursue claims arising out of car accidents, truck accidents, and slip/trip and falls.


I have been named as a Rising Star for 2013 and 2014 by Georgia SuperLawyers. Only 2.5% of Georgia lawyers are chosen for this honor. I have also been named as one of Georgia Trend Magazine's "2013 Legal Elite."


Before joining Van Sant Law in late 2013, I spent more than seven years with two large Atlanta firms defending insurance companies, trucking companies, and other corporations against personal injury and wrongful death claims.  I have extensive experience in dealing with insurance companies and understanding how they work to prevent individuals from recovering compensation for legitimate injuries. My time spent defending these claims gave me a unique appreciation for how motor vehicle wrecks and other incidents impact individuals and their families, and helps me achieve the best result for my clients.


I have offices in Atlanta and Cumming but handle cases across the State of Georgia. Feel free to call or email me with questions about your claim.
