ZACH ALLEN

attorney

Zach writes to win. He understands that it takes more than boilerplate language to carry the day.  Zach strives to carry his client’s arguments with comprehensive legal analysis and clear, direct, and persuasive writing. He recognizes the importance of telling each client’s story, rather than cutting and pasting from old legal briefs, and attacks each new legal problem rigorously and thoroughly.

 

Before joining Richardson Wright LLP, Zach was a Law Clerk at the Oregon Court of Appeals.  Much of the work he enjoys most is centered around appellate briefing and oral argument.  His peers have recognized Zach as a Rising Star in Oregon SuperLawyers® in 2019, 2020 and 2021.

 

Zach relishes the opportunity to take on new, unique, and complex problems for his clients and believes strongly in the importance of seeing all sides of an argument. He is driven to understand his client’s goals and knows that focused, efficient advocacy—along with a steady hand on the wheel—is the surest way to get them where they want to go.
