Zachary K. Maddox (Zach) graduated cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in May of 2022 and was selected for the Order of the Coif. During law school, he interned for Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Max Baer, and was a teaching assistant of both Legal Writing and Contracts courses. Zach also taught constitutional law to high school students at The Neighborhood Academy as part of a novel education initiative developed at Pitt Law.
While at Pitt, Zach was a student law clerk at Stember Cohn & Davidson-Welling, and developed experience with workplace discrimination and retaliation claims, unemployment and disability benefit claims, collective bargaining, and contract negotiations. After graduation, Zach returned to Stember Cohn and Davidson-Welling as an associate attorney (pending bar admission), where he continues to focus on employee and labor advocacy.
Zach grew up in Pittsburgh and returned in 2012 after living in New York City, New Orleans, and Budapest, Hungary. He worked in Pittsburgh restaurants, and later, for an organization that helped people find living-wage employment and housing after imprisonment. In his spare time, Zach enjoys maintaining a collection of bonsai trees, cooking, and watching basketball.
