Gregory Zarzaur, Esq. is the founding member and lead trial attorney at the Birmingham, Alabama law firm Zarzaur. From the beginning of his law practice in 2000, Greg has almost exclusively represented individuals that have been injured by the criminal or otherwise wrongful conduct of others. He is one of a handful of Alabama attorneys that is a recognized member of the National Crime Victim Bar Association and he is dedicated to increasing awareness for crime victim rights and assisting such victims in maximizing any recovery they may be entitled to under the law.
More recently, Greg has been active in educating his colleagues and victim advocates about ways to help human trafficking and sexual abuse victims obtain the justice they deserve while putting the shame of these heinous crimes on those persons responsible for committing them or enabling them to be committed.
In Greg’s first ever civil jury trial, as the lead attorney, he obtained a $2.5 million dollar jury verdict against a national insurance company that had defrauded an elderly couple. Since that first trial, Greg has earned the respect of his clients, opponents and his colleagues as evidenced by his recognition in the legal community. His legal achievements include an AV-Preeminent rating (the highest available) by Martindale-Hubbell, a company that has been rating attorneys since 1868.
In addition, Greg has been named a Super Lawyer for Alabama, was listed in the Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers and named one of the Top 40 Litigation Lawyers Under 40 in Alabama by the American Society of Legal Advocates. Prior to starting his own firm, Greg had the privilege of working for some of the best trial lawyers in America including his mentors Leah and Ted Taylor and the late David Cromwell Johnson. Greg is a proud father, husband and avid fan of his alma mater Notre Dame where he was a walk-on football player under Hall of Fame Coach Lou Holtz.
