Gary M. Zernich received his Juris Doctorate Degree from Southwestern University School of Law in 2001 and his Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Vermont.
Gary was raised in a small steel mill town 25 miles north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In law school, Gary graduated in the top 15% of his class, and ultimately passed the bar exam in the States of New York, New Jersey, and Nevada. Before joining Pecos Law Group, Gary worked for the Zernich Law Office since 2003 as the owner and lead attorney. The Zernich Law Office was a small law firm of three attorneys and staff that practiced primarily in family law and plaintiff’s personal injury. Gary started his legal career with the Christensen Law Offices, practicing primarily in plaintiff’s personal injury.
Before pursuing the law, Gary worked in the health field selling soft goods and medical devices to hospitals and doctor’s private practices and operated Tri-State Mobile Mammography, a business dedicated to the detection of breast cancer.
In his free time, Gary enjoys spending time with his wife and three children. For more than 12 years, Gary helped coach a youth wrestling club in Las Vegas and traveled extensively with youth wrestlers to out-of-State regional and national level events. Gary also enjoys physical fitness, reading, dining out and having a glass of wine with his wife, or tending to his dogs, cats, and chickens.
