Specifically, Zac is admitted to practice before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, and the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, to name a few. Zac graduated from Dartmouth College in 1993, then Cornell Law School in 1997, after which, he returned to open a solo practice in the Stroudsburg area, focusing on bankruptcy, landlord/tenant law, and juvenile justice.  

In 2001, Zac joined William G. Schwab & Associates, where he focused on bankruptcy and bankruptcy litigation, including representation of Chapter 7, Chapter 11 and Chapter 12 Trustees. At William G. Schwab & Associates, Zac represented William G. Schwab, in his capacity as a Chapter 7 Panel Trustee, in litigation that eventually reached the Supreme Court of the United States of America, where the Trustee obtained a reversal of a ruling of the Bankruptcy Court that had been affirmed at every lower appellate level.

In 2007, Zac joined the Stroudsburg firm, Newman, Williams, Mishkin, Corveleyn, Wolfe & Fareri, P.C., where he focused more on consumer bankruptcy cases and related litigation. Zac continued to represent creditors and trustees in addition to consumer and business debtors in all aspects of bankruptcy and bankruptcy litigation. Zac continued to handle complex litigation to the appellate level, where necessary, occasionally resulting in changes to the established law.

Now, Zac is excited to partner with John Fisher, Esquire, at Fisher Christman. Zac opened a branch office at 530 Main Street, Stroudsburg, to allow Fisher Christman to better service the Pocono region. With offices there and at 126 South Main Street, Pittston, Fisher Christman can fulfill the need for bankruptcy representation for individuals and corporate entities, including both debtors, creditors, and other parties, including Trustees.
