Zach started with the Attorney General's Office in August 2013.  He started with the Constitutional Offices section.  In that role, he represented Ohio’s elected officials, including the Governor and the Secretary of State.  For example, he defended the Secretary of State in cases challenging Ohio’s election laws for the 2016 presidential election. 

Zach joined the Office of the Solicitor General in June 2019.  He represents the State of Ohio and its agencies in appeals before the Ohio Supreme Court, United States Supreme Court, and Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.

During his time with the Attorney General’s Office, Zach has won several writing awards.  He is a three-time winner (2015, 2016, and 2018) of the Attorney General's office-wide Excellence in Writing Award.  In 2017, he received the Ohio State Bar Association's Best Public Brief Award for a brief he wrote before the Ohio Supreme Court.  The brief was about Ohio's ballot language for a proposed constitutional amendment.

Before joining the office, Zach clerked for District Judge Edmund A. Sargus and Magistrate Judge Elizabeth P. Deavers in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.
