Practice Areas

Criminal Defense

I know it can be daunting to face a criminal prosecution with potential jail time and the additional loss of freedom and privileges through court fines, probation intrusions, licence suspensions and the impact of your reputation at work and in your community. I have helped hundreds of clients through criminal proceedings of all types and pride myself on making sue that my client is aware of all possible defenses and that they make an informed decision whether or not to take the matter to trial or accept a plea offer. Whichever option you choose, I will take the time to explain all the risks and benefits in an effort to help you maintain your humanity through this often dehumanizing process.

Family Law

Family law is a category of law that encompasses a broad range of legal topics including children and marriage. It includes legal issues surrounding divorce, child custody, adoption, guardianship and domestic violence. The law firm of Zachary W. Light, P.C. has extensive experience in family law matters including divorce issues, adoptions, grandparent rights and DHS child welfare cases. Attorney Zachary Light is committed to acting in the best interests of his clients and their families.

Personal Injury and Civil Litigation

Unlike some personal injury lawyers who take only serious injury cases, I will take any case where there is provable injury that is the result of someone else's negligence or intentional act. This is why I do not advertise big verdicts to potential clients and also affords me the luxury of being honest with my clients about what their injury is worth. If we do not get a settlement offer that is fair or just to you, I will take the case to a jury. If you are disabled and unable to work, I also assist with your disability claim.
