ZACHARY C. MCFARLAND
Zach McFarland has spent over twenty years practicing exclusively in the areas of personal injury and insurance bad faith. Over those years, he has amassed a tremendous amount of expertise and knowledge. Zach knows the strategies and approaches that create prompt and successful resolutions for his clients. He knows the judges, defense lawyers, and insurance adjusters involved in these claims, and knows how to tailor his approach to best represent his clients’ interests.
Zach earned his undergraduate degree in International Political Economy from Colorado College in 1995. He graduated from The University of Colorado School of Law in 1998. While most of his friends and classmates were struggling with what to do with their law degrees, or bouncing from firm to firm, Zach had no doubts where his career would take him. Zach’s father was a personal injury attorney, and he grew up watching him represent people who had been injured or wronged though no fault of their own. He watched his dad help these victims and their families put their lives back together after tragic accidents. He saw how these people were treated by big insurance companies if they didn’t have a lawyer, and how badly they needed someone to level the playing field. Zach always knew that he wanted to do the same thing as his father, so they formed McFarland Law Offices in 1998. Since that time, Zach has represented hundreds of people who have been injured in auto and motorcycle accidents. He has also successfully handled numerous catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases. He has repeatedly taken on big insurance companies who have failed to pay benefits due under automobile, homeowners, or life insurance policies.
Zach is an active member and former board member of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association. He was selected as a Super Lawyers Rising Star for five consecutive years and is rated as “Superb” on Avvo.com. Zach is married to his high school sweetheart, and has two wonderful children. He enjoys coaching his kids’ sports teams, playing basketball, surfing and playing guitar.
