Thank you for taking the time to view my Avvo profile, and congratulations on taking the first step to overcoming the obstacles in your life. Since 2012, I have practiced exclusively in the area of criminal defense. I devote my professional life to helping people of all backgrounds overcome the legal obstacles they are facing. I work tirelessly to provide my clients with the guidance required to protect their interests and help them move forward with dignity. I handle all types of criminal cases from misdemeanors to complex "white collar" financial crimes, and everything in between.

I am an avid firearm enthusiast and staunch second amendment supporter. In this capacity, I have the pleasure of serving South Florida as a referral attorney for both the National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation.

Solid Lawyer
Just wanted to say a few things about Zack. He is super smart, fast thinking, knows the law and also calls me back. Not easy finding a lawyer that i pay, to call me back within 2 days. He does. I recommend using him for anything you can use him for!

The Problem Solver
I came to Zach with a very serious issue. He clearly explained the problems I was facing and helped calm my nerves, and very quickly was able to resolve my case without any changes being filed! He is my lawyer for life, and I would definitely recommend his services!

My experience with Zachary Ribback
I have been divorced twice, so I have experience with attorneys. This man not only handled my case in a professional manner,but he stuck with me for an extended amount of time. I am still amazed at how much time he spent with me working out problems and successfully bringing my case to a resolution. By far the best attorney in Florida.

Concealed Carry, Florida.
I had a problem with my CCP and decided to go it alone, but after thinking about it I decided to seek consul. Called the NRA and was referred to Zack, I can say with complete confidence, Zack was available and I had my CCP, within a week.

Concealed Weapons Permit
10 years ago I was arrested for DV, out of the state of Florida, I had several years where I thought I was not able to own a gun let alone have a CWP. I was referred to Zachary Riback and he gave me excellent legal advise and helped me to understand what I actually was arrested for, NOT DV rather Criminal Mischief. Zachary not only helped me to obtain my CWP but helped me to understand what my charges actually were. Very detailed, always available, extremely professional, and a great joy to work with. I highly recommend Mr. Riback.
