Profile

Zach Spear is an Attorney in the San Diego office of Buchalter and a member of the Firm’s Litigation Practice Group. He formerly worked as a play-by-play broadcaster in the minor leagues of baseball, where he enjoyed his front-row seat watching some of the game’s best players begin their careers.  Before that, he was an award-winning newspaper reporter and sports columnist.  He also helped an inventor market a newly patented invention that is now available nationwide, giving him a firsthand perspective on the challenges facing entrepreneurs and businesses.

While attending law school, Mr. Spear was a judicial extern for U.S. District Judge Edward J. Davila in the Northern District of California, San Jose.  He also served as a judicial intern for the Complex Civil Division of the Contra Costa Superior Court, where he was responsible for drafting tentative rulings and orders.  He was one of two students selected for the prestigious 2015 Pfaff Trial Lawyer Scholarship, a competitive award based on a proven ability and desire to become a competent trial lawyer.  Mr. Spear was awarded the highest grade in nine of his law school courses and graduated in the top 11% of his class.

Mr. Spear is a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association and the Lawyer-Pilots Bar Association.  He joined Buchalter in 2017 after beginning his career with the litigation department of an entertainment law firm in Beverly Hills, where he represented and advised entrepreneurs, individuals, and a range of companies large and small including film production houses, television production studios, and several small businesses.

Mr. Spear also draws from his broad base of aviation knowledge to advise the firm’s clients on FAA and DOT regulatory compliance issues.  He holds an FAA Private Pilot certificate with Airplane Single Engine Land (ASEL) privileges.  Mr. Spear volunteers with Angel Flight West, an air charity network connecting people to medical care across the Western United States.
