Who Is Zac?
Allentown born and raised, my family has called Lehigh County its home for five generations. My wife and I love raising our children here and think there is no place better.
I want to become a judge for Lehigh County to help others and serve my community. My father-in-law, the late Judge Franklin Van Antwerpen, who rose to the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals, the highest court for any judge from the Lehigh Valley, taught me how judges can use the rule of law to protect and serve others. It was through his influence that I’ve chosen to follow in his footsteps by using my legal abilities to benefit my community.
Why Choose Zac?
“Equal Justice Under Law” is inscribed on the front of the Supreme Court of the United States. Simply put, it means everyone deserves a fair shake and an impartial decision maker. That is what I promise to bring to the Lehigh County Bench. No matter what social standing, background, or other combination of qualities characterize you, I pledge to administer my constitutional duties as a judge to secure equal justice for all alike with common sense solutions.
