Dedicated to her practice, Ms. Zauhar is active in several professional legal organizations, including the Minnesota Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Minnesota Women Lawyers and the Minnesota State Bar Association. Recognized for her extensive knowledge of DWI laws, she regularly contributes to Minnesota DWI Deskbook, a comprehensive reference guide used by prosecutors, judges and defense attorneys throughout the state. She has also published articles in Attorney at Law Magazine and other legal publications.

An accomplished speaker as well as an author, she has delivered lectures on a variety of legal topics ranging from expungement law to discrimination in the criminal justice system.
