Zach's the man
It was a pleasure working with Zach. He basically took care of everything and I basically didn't have to do much at all. He resolved my case in a satisfactory manner. I imagine he strong armed and bullied people to get what I wanted but in reality, it was probably his connections and knowledge of the law that got the job done. Thanks Zach!

Great Service!!! Efficient, professional, and very knowledgeable
Zach did a fantastic job with resolving my traffic citation. He went above and beyond to get my case quickly resolved from start to finish. He was very responsive when I had questions and provided a great deal of insight as to what we were dealing with and the possible outcomes. In the end he got my traffic citation dismissed and no points were added to my license which is a BIG WIN. I would recommend Zach to anyone for they’re legal needs.

Underage consumption
Zach got my charges lifted and expunged with minimal effort on my end. Very quick to get things done, and I am vigorously happy with the results.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have had the pleasure of working with Attorney Gwin for three years now and am continually impressed by his command of criminal statutes and procedures. Equally at home in the courtroom as in less adversarial proceedings, Zach’s abilities to parse the details and develop innovative, tailored solutions to his clients’ complex needs are one of the many reasons he’s quickly becoming one of Columbus’s go to names for high quality criminal defense."
