About Zachary Guyse

What do you most enjoy about working with your clients?

I enjoy that every one of my clients have unique personalities and challenges. It is rewarding to educate and guide clients through the legal process, especially since many have not experienced it before.

What are you most proud of?

I received a small thank you note from one of my first clients after I represented him in a workers' compensation and disability case. That note means a lot to me and reminds me of why I became a lawyer. I keep the note on my desk to this day.

What do you feel particularly passionate about?

I am passionate about my faith, family, and Alabama football – in that exact order.

Zachary Guyse


Zach was born and raised in Decatur, Alabama. He received his undergraduate degree in History from Birmingham-Southern College in 2011, and was a Harrison Honors Scholar. He went on to earn his Juris Doctorate in 2014 from the University of Alabama School of Law. While in law school, Zach was on the managing board of the Alabama Law Review, and was a member of the school's ABA National Moot Court competition team and Campbell Moot Court Board. Since joining the firm in 2014, Zach has litigated cases across the state involving personal injury, trucking accidents, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, workers' compensation, breach of contract, and real estate litigation. In his first jury trial, Zach's trial team secured a $4.1 million dollar verdict against the State of Alabama after the state used its power of eminent domain to seize private property from a family in Limestone County without just compensation.

In 2017, Zach was inducted into the National Trial Lawyers, "Top 40 under 40," for Civil Plaintiff Attorneys in Alabama. He has also been selected as a "Rising Star" by Super Lawyers. He is an active member of the Huntsville-Madison County Bar Association and the Alabama Association for Justice. Zach lives in Athens with his wife, Marie, and three children, Theodore, Adelaide and Rigby. Zach and his family attend church at Valley Presbyterian Church in Madison, where Zach serves as a deacon.

Before joining the firm in 2014, Zach's work experience included his time serving as a judicial intern for U.S. District Judge R. David Proctor, as well as a law clerk for the Madison County District Attorney's Office.

Some of the case summaries, reports of past results, and lawyer biographical information describe past matters handled for clients. These descriptions are meant only to provide information about the activities and experience. They are not intended as a guarantee that the same or similar results can be obtained in every matter undertaken. You should not assume that a similar result can be obtained in a legal matter of interest to you. The outcome of a particular matter can depend on a variety of factors—including the specific factual and legal circumstances, the ability of opposing counsel, and, often, unexpected developments beyond the control of any client or lawyer. Wolfe Jones nor any of its attorneys offer any guarantee of case results, and past success in litigation does not guarantee success in any new or future lawsuit.
