Professional, Ethical, Patient, Open and Honest, are ALL qualities that I would use to describe Zak Kretchmer. Nothing about my divorce was “normal” or “easy,” if divorce is ever that. However, if you want an Attorney who will have your back, Zak is your counsel. From the date of hire, Zak was great at preparing me for the process both as it related to our financial situation, child support and custody and spousal maintenance. My focus was my daughter and to receive equitable assets of my 15 year marriage. Zak’s patience in answering custody and financial questions cannot be surpassed. The financials in my marriage were complex and mostly taken care of by my ex-husband, so this process was relatively new to me. However, Zak was there to provide detailed explanations, guidance and recommendations that I am forever thankful for. When things got heated, Zak was quick to respond and remind me of his role and our goals in the divorce. Even after the Decree was signed, Zak has provided further assistance and referrals that have gone above and beyond my expectations as a Divorce Attorney. Not only would I recommend Zak but I am grateful that I had him in my corner during the most challenging time of my life. With his help, I have successfully navigated divorce and done so with dignity and grace.

Zachary helped me through a time when I was blinded by the reality of my divorce. He kept me focused and always used a gentle approach with me and my ex. He is a very skilled at handling all related matters in a professional manner. His demeanor is calm but persuasive when necessary which makes him a great advocate for your best interests and that of your children. He would always tell me “Goodness and Light”. In the beginning this was not something I could see, but now I clearly understand. He is someone I will always consider a friend

Helpful, respectful, direct and realistic!

From day one, Zak’s demeanor and attitude towards my case was extremely professional. Not only did he treat me like a client, but he treated me like a person — respected by feelings, my emotions, my POV and my situation. By nature, his work is very sensitive and things can be complex when feelings are involved. He “dumbed things down” for me when needed, he was able to articulate and clearly lay out a gameplan for my case, and kept me apprised of the status of my case continuously. Zak was also very timely and thorough in his responses, both to me and opposing counsel. I appreciated that he kept things moves as expeditiously as possible. He made sure that I had realistic expectations, wasn’t afraid to give me his professional opinion and told me if/when I was out of line. Most importantly, I always felt like Zak had my back and had my best interests in mind. I would definitely refer Zak on to others seeking professional advice surrounding divorce and separation.

I found Zak to be a good, honest and compassionate lawyer. I had a very difficult case to handle dissolving a 41 year marriage. I also really appreciated the fact that he was available when ever I needed him (witch was often). He guided me to the best possible outcome all things considered. I would strongly recommend his services to anyone!

Zach is super professional, extremely knowledgable in the area of family law and very warm and personable. I had a very complicated divorce. Zach handled it superbly! Many people I meet are astonished that he was able to get for me, a father, total custody of my minor daughter. I recommend Zach and his firm to anyone who needs help in the area of family law.

Going into my divorce, I had many concerns. My children and wife’s well-being, custody/child support, and financial settlement were at the top.

Through the entire process, Zak and team were very professional and I always felt I had the best representation in my corner. I would highly recommend Zachary Kretchmer.

Look no further – hire Zak

I was referred to Zak by a trusted friend, and I am beyond thankful for his guidance and support as I navigated through my divorce this past year. I had many concerns regarding my financial well-being, child custody and support and spousal maintenance, as I was transitioning from being a stay-at-home-mom to a single, working mother to a 3-year-old little boy. Zak made me feel comfortable right away and took the time to prepare me for every step in the process, paying extra attention to details that were of highest importance to me. He advocated for the best interest of my little boy and I, and was by my side for every financial and child custody mediation appointment. He promptly responded to all of my phone calls and emails and patiently answered my questions in a way that made sense to me, without making me feel inferior or overwhelmed with lawyer jargon. I could not be happier with the end results of my divorce and my experience with Zak. He is an incredible lawyer – but equally as important, he is a trustworthy, loyal, stand-up guy. Look no further – hire Zak.

Mr. Kretchmer provides a very transparent and clear view of the case at hand and has a great step-wise approach to dealing with the multiple, and at times, unique aspects of the legal process. In my specific case, Mr. Kretchmer along with his team provided excellent guidance and advice throughout the course of the proceedings and and integrated my feedback at every step. Great attorney with access to a great knowledge base.
