Zachary A. Ressler graduated from Baylor University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2009 and received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Oklahoma College of Law in 2014. After becoming licensed in Texas, Zac first practiced criminal defense for indigent clients in his hometown of Paris, Texas. In the litigation-heavy field of criminal defense, Zac constantly fought uphill battles for his clients and, as a result, quickly honed his trial skills and learned to apply creative solutions to difficult cases. When he
moved to the Dallas metro, Zac applied his skills to great effect in the fields of family law and civil litigation. Now, Zac is proud to be a member of the Carpenter & Associates family, where he can lend his creativity and trial acumen to get the best results possible for their clients.
Zac is an avid fan of community theater. Shortly after returning to Paris to practice law, he joined the Board of Directors for the Paris Community Theater and played a small part in their production of Chicago. Zac has been a season ticket-holder for the Mesquite Community Theater for three years. "It's incredible to me to see people with jobs and families prepare and perform these shows in what little spare time they have to offer. I am consistently amazed at the quality of production a group of dedicated
amatures can put on."
Zac is an alumnus and former Justice (President) of the OU College of Law Chapter of Phi Alpha Delta International Law Fraternity, and was awarded a Pro Bono Service Award in law school
