A passion for serving business needs
Zachary Neil Layne has always had an interest in contracts, business and the law. Now, tenacious in resolving complex issues, he also enjoys being able to guide his clients and ease the stresses associated with challenging issues. When not focused on work, he’s a dedicated UNC Tarheel fan, both on the court and the gridiron.
North Carolinian Through and Through
Zachary grew up in the small town of Henderson, NC. His academic abilities were evident throughout his youth, and he was delighted to attend the University of North Carolina’s Chapel Hill campus.
After earning a double major in Communication Studies and Political Science, he elected to stay in Chapel Hill, attending the University of North Carolina School of Law, receiving his Juris Doctor in 2019. During his time in law school, Zachary also bolstered his writing talent through his work for the North Carolina Banking Institute Journal.
Dedicated to Businesses Large and Small
As a young attorney in the fields of construction and business law, Zachary looks forward to assisting clients in contract review, liens, commercial collections and other areas related to the construction industry. He is also passionate about helping individuals through the creation of new businesses, from selecting the legal entity of the business to drafting all requisite documentation the business will need as it launches and grows
A Point of Pride
Achieving the best possible resolution for clients is his primary goal. That’s why, among Zachary’s many successful moments, his proudest and most rewarding so far is having been able to obtain a judgment in favor of his client at his first summary judgment hearing—a positive result, without a risky trial.
Carolina Even in Downtime
In his free time, Zachary enjoys spending time with his girlfriend Zoe, family and friends, as well as watching North Carolina football and basketball. Go Heels!
