Zachariah B. Parry J.D.

Zach Parry is a founder of the civil litigation firm, Parry & Pfau. He concentrates his practice on business and contract Law, fraud and white collar crime, and personal injury. He regularly litigates against parties with deep pockets like labor unions, racketeering enterprises, and insurance companies.

He has experienced success on both sides of the table, including multiple multi-million dollar judgments on behalf of plaintiffs in fraud cases, and zero-dollar defense verdicts on behalf of clients unjustly sued.

Zach received his undergraduate degree in Psychology from Brigham Young University. While at BYU, he won the Sloan Speech Showcase Award for expository oration for a tongue-in-cheek delivery of his original work, “How to Give a Condescending Speech.”

He then headed to the Midwest where he attended law school at the highly ranked University of Illinois. At the U of I, Zach received numerous awards, including two CALI Excellence for the Future Awards. He was honored to receive the law school’s most prestigious award, the Rickert Award—twice—once for excellence in trial advocacy and once for excellence in legal writing. Zach also enjoyed success in both moot court and trial team.

Zach’s article, “Digital Manipulation and Photographic Evidence: Defrauding the Courts One Thousand Words at a Time” published in the University of Illinois Journal of Law, Technology & Policy, was identified by the Rutgers Computer and Technology Law Journal in its Spring 2010 issue as one “of the most important and timely articles on computers, technology, and the law” for its treatment of computer-generated demonstrative evidence.

Zach has been teaching in UNLV's Paralegal Program for four years.  He teaches in all aspects of the program including the practicum and law courses.  The Paralegal Practicum course consists of writing skills, legal skills, and law practice skills, and the law courses consisting of Tort Law, Contract Law, Criminal Law and Procedure, Civil Procedure and Family Law.
Zach is licensed in Nevada and Utah.
