Zachary Crosner

Partner/President of Firm

Growing up in a family of trial lawyers, Zach has been crafting his litigation skills for many years. While attending law school at University of San Diego School of Law he was a member of the international moot court/mock trial team and an article writer for the USD Law Newspaper. He also found time to work at two top-rated plaintiff litigation firms in San Diego. At those litigation firms he actively participated in several multimillion dollar lawsuits. Within a few months of passing the Bar Exam, Zach successfully second chaired a $300,000 jury verdict in a highly contested slip and fall personal injury trial. Lead counsel in that trial was a past President of the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego.

Since then, Zach has worked for former Trial Attorneys of the Year and other highly regarded plaintiff’s attorneys. Some unique and complex cases that he has worked on include the San Diego Wildfire Cases; insurance bad faith class action for denial of coverage of advanced prosthetic devices for amputees; misappropriation of likeness on behalf of British Royalty’s image being used in cigarette advertisements; highly publicized auto, motorcycle, and trucking accident death cases; FCRA background check class action for improper disclosures; and countless wage and hour, consumer and privacy class and representative actions.

Zach is presently licensed to practice law in California and Illinois. He has been selected from 2019 through 2022 by the National Trial Lawyers, an invitation-only organization, as a Top 40 under 40 trial lawyer. He has also been selected by Super Lawyers as a Top 100 Up and Coming Lawyer for 2021 through 2023, as well as a Super Lawyer – Rising Star 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 & 2023. He has been approved as adequate lead class counsel in well over 100 class action and representative action cases. He is also on the Executive Legislative Committee and Executive Wage and Hour Committee for the California Employment Lawyers Association.

Zach founded Crosner Legal with the goal of standing up for employees, consumers and individuals whose rights have been violated. He has been fortunate to have helped tens of thousands of individuals not only obtain restitution, but also materially change corporations’ unlawful and deceptive policies and practices for the benefit of employees and consumers. Zach wakes up every day grateful and proud of his firm’s efforts to correct employment, consumer and privacy rights abuses, for the benefit of the public.
