Zach Herbert went to Law School with a very general plan: to be a voice for those without one. He had no idea how that was going to turn out. So he tried out everything. Zach interned at an insurance defense firm, the Los Angeles DA’s office, 20th Century Fox, a real estate litigation firm, and others. But it wasn’t until he considered serving in the military that Zach decided he had found what he was going to do next. He visited Camp Pendleton and one of his childhood friends gave him a tour and introduced him to Marines. After graduation, Zach took and passed the Texas Bar and began training for Officer Candidate School. He commissioned as an officer in the Marine Corps on March 26, 2010.
As a military lawyer or Judge Advocate, Zach was assigned to defend Marines and Sailors accused of crimes onboard Camp Lejeune, NC. Zach tried many jury trials and found his passion was for trial law. Upon leaving the military, Zach continued to hone his trial skills for a large law firm in Dallas. He was accepted into the Trial Lawyers College founded by Gerry Spence in Dubois, Wyoming.
For three weeks, Zach worked on his trial skills with other lawyers from around the country. He came back and quickly made a name for himself as a tenacious and honorable trial lawyer in Dallas.
When Zach founded Herbert & Eberstein, he did so in order to focus on the three core values of Honesty, Honor, and Communication. He didn’t want his law firm to look like any other law firm out there. He wanted his law firm to reflect not only who he is, but also who he strives to be every day, both in and out of the courtroom, both at home and in the office. You can see his effort in everything Herbert & Eberstein does, and through everyone that works here.
Zach lives in Richardson with his wife and kids. His free time is spent playing with his four children, or amateur woodworking, or Netflix binging. He enjoys the outdoors, loves to hunt, and cooks a mean ribeye steak.
