Zachary is a rising 3L at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. He is a staff editor on the Cardozo’s Journal of Conflict Resolution and was a part of the Alexander Fellows Program in the Southern District of New York this past semester. Zach recently worked at Jones Lang LaSalle where he assisted with the preparation of complex contracts and memos for debt and equity commercial real estate investments. Zach earned his undergraduate degree in Business Administration, Real Estate & Urban Land Economics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Our Summer Associate Program provides law students with hands-on, real-world experience across multiple practice areas. They are given the opportunity to work and learn from a range of attorneys—from our most senior partner to our most junior associate. We foster an environment where feedback is given freely and often to maximize the summer associates’ learning and to ensure a valuable experience at our Firm.
