Attorney Profile

The founder of his eponymous law firm, Zach V. Thomas focuses his practice exclusively on criminal defense. Located in Olathe, Kansas, the state where he was born and raised, he represents clients throughout the greater Kansas City metropolitan area. Admitted to practice before all Kansas state courts since 2010, Mr. Thomas is also admitted to practice in neighboring Missouri.

Mr. Thomas provides forceful advocacy on behalf of people who have been accused by the state government of having committed felony or misdemeanor offenses. Among the cases that he has handled on their behalf are those involving driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, domestic violence, theft, battery, drug possession and distribution, fraud and other white collar crimes, and burglary.

In the event that Mr. Thomas has not negotiated plea bargain agreements with state prosecutors, he takes the cases to trial, and he has been able to obtain numerous results that are favorable to his clients, including charge dismissals and bench and jury acquittals. This successful track record along with his high degree of ethics has earned him a great deal of positive recognition from his fellow attorneys, including a 10.0 “Superb” peer review rating through Avvo. In addition, Mr. Thomas has been named to The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100, and he has been included in the Kansas City Business Journal’s annual “Best of the Bar” list.

Mr. Thomas attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville as an undergraduate, where he majored in political science and Spanish and earned a Bachelor of Arts in 2004. He then pursued his legal education at the University of Kansas School of Law, and in 2007, he was awarded his Juris Doctor. He is a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys and several other legal organizations.
