Zachary Smith Mediation

Resolving complex disputes throughout California

In-Person & via Zoom

Zachary Smith is a mediator seasoned by more than 25 years of experience as a trial lawyer and civil defense litigator handling high-exposure cases for one of the nation’s largest insurers. Regard for his expertise and professionalism is highlighted by his selection as the 2018 Defense Attorney of the Year by the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association, an organization serving the plaintiff’s bar.

Along with his knowledge of law, procedure, case valuations, and the inner workings of insurance companies, Zach possesses a deep understanding of the mediation process, risk analysis, legal rights and remedies, court systems, and negotiation, as well as the resolution of complex, highly emotional, and intractable disputes.

Zach applies pragmatism, acumen, and rapport to organize parties and complaints; rapidly identifies conflicts and in what order they need to be resolved; and uses thorough preparation, straightforward conversation, and creative solutions to bring disputes to resolution.

Zach conducts mediations throughout California – in person and in online virtual settings.
