Zachary A. Martel is a dedicated member of the community. His sales, business and management experience helps to shape his pragmatic approach to legal matters.

Zach earned an International Business and Marketing double major from Illinois State University in 2000. He worked at Merrill Lynch through the turbulent 2000-2002 stock market crash. Later, Zach advanced through the management program at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, earning numerous awards for sales success. Eventually, Zach pursued his law degree so that he could really make a difference in the community and those in need. He earned his Juris Doctor from The John Marshall Law School, in Chicago.

Zach channeled his professional motivations and desires towards a law degree at the John Marshall Law School in Chicago (Dean's List). During his time at John Marshall, Zach competed in and led several Alternative Dispute Resolution competitions and courses. In addition, he was a judicial extern in the U.S. Federal Courts. Zach started practicing law as a sole-practitioner, with great aspirations. Currently, he is a professional member of the DuPage County Bar Association, Illinois State Bar Association, Illinois Association of Independent Attorneys, and American Inns of Court (Robert E.

In 2013, Zach was nominated as a Top 40 Under 40 by the American Society of Legal Advocates (ASLA) in the area of Family Law. In 2014, Zach was named by The National Trial Lawyers as a Top 40 Under 40. He was also recognized as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers (2015 - 2017). Most recently, Zach was nominated by Leading Lawyers as an Emerging Lawyer for 2017.

Zach lives in Naperville, with his wife and four children. He enjoys family time, friend time, being outside, adventures, exercising, music, sports, entertainment, and enjoying time off work (whenever possible).

Following his passion of making a difference in the community and providing help to those in need, Zach was Chairman of the Board for the Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity. Also, he is a co-founder and secretary of the board for ReStore, a not-for-profit retail store. Zach has been on Radio and TV as a proud advocate of Habitat for Humanity and ReStore.
