CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

What are my clients saying about me?

“We have worked with numerous attorneys throughout our 7 ½-year tenure in the games industry. Most have been good and we thought we had excellent representation. However, Zack’s focus on gaming and his exhaustive knowledge about the unique aspects of our industry make him a much better choice for legal advice. And, the experience of working with Zack transcends simply professional, legal advice; he engages with us like a trusted partner and helps us make strategic decisions.”

Keith Warner, President
New World Interactive
Insurgency: Sandstorm

“When I hire someone, I’m concerned about quality, communication, and speed. None of those concerns were valid for Zachary. 

If you’re looking for a lawyer who knows that game industry and creates excellent contracts, I’d highly recommend Zachary.”

Jamey Stegmaier, CEO
Stonemaier Games
Scythe, Wingspan

“My biggest worry, because of the previous law firm we worked with, was that just like them, Zack might try to charge us for services we didn’t need by making it seem like they were crucial for us to run a business. They also charged us for every little thing.

It did not come true. Zack is the best and I trust him and whatever he suggests 100%!!!”

Yaprak DeCarmine, Co-Founder
Game Jolt

“Zack not only knows his stuff but it’s obvious that he loves the gaming community. Zack is super easy to talk to about legal concerns and super easy to work with! Zack makes sure he understand your concerns before offering advice or help and, just as important, he goes out of his way to make sure you understand the legal side of things. I couldn’t recommend any other lawyer more highly than Zachary Strebeck.”

John Coveyou, Founder
Genius Games
Cytosis, SubAtomic

“From pirates to contractors, Zack does a great job at shedding light on the legal situations we face and does a great job executing contracts and taking action on our behalf.

‘This is the most professionally written contract I have ever seen’ said one art contractor on my project. I nodded my head with a satisfied smile.”

Erik Rydeman, Creator
Doborog
Clone Drone in the Danger Zone

“Zack has been a pleasure to work with. We really appreciate his calm, reasonable demeanor, thoughtful advice, and extensive knowledge of the industry. 

We would highly recommend him (and already have to a few people).”
