About Zachary B. Setzer
The Law Office of Zachary B. Setzer, PLLC is a one-lawyer firm located in Monroe, North Carolina, the county seat of Union County. The attorney, Zachary Setzer, graduated cum laude from Washington and Lee University School of Law where he was Lead Articles Editor of the Washington and Lee Law Review and received the James C.C. Treadway Law Scholarship.

Before attending law school, Zachary graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a B.A. in Religious Studies and a B.A. in Political Science.

Being a solo practice, Zachary takes pride in having the opportunity to work with every client personally, giving them his personal attention so that he gets to know them and so the job gets done right. That is not to say he runs the ship alone. Lauren Setzer is both his wife and the office manager. Lauren is an excellent administrator and strives to build a great relationship with every client.

Zachary chose to focus his practice exclusively on Estate Planning because he believes that clients deserve a higher level of service and expertise than they tend to receive if they go to a general practitioner to have their wills made. Estate Planning is a complicated and potentially sensitive field. The unfortunate truth is that many lawyers with only a surface-level understanding of the law of Wills, Trusts, and Estate Planning are offering Estate Planning services. While any lawyer can draft a simple will copied out of a form book, Zachary believes that clients should receive personalized Estate Plans that reflect a deeper understanding of their personal situations, desires, hopes, concerns, and even fears.
