Patricia L. Zlaket
Co-founder of Zlaket Law Offices, Patricia L. Zlaket (Patti) works side by side with her father to represent those who have been injured due to the negligence of another. Clients benefit from her extensive experience in cases related to premises liability, auto accidents, medical malpractice, pharmacy negligence, and wrongful death.
After leaving a successful 20-year career in the music industry, Patti has built her law practice on the foundation of helping others access the justice system. At California Western School of Law, she graduated cum laude and then spent five years at the prestigious San Diego firm, Casey Gerry, handling cases involving products liability, medical malpractice, auto accidents, premises liability, and multidistrict medical device and pharmaceutical cases. There she helped earn numerous high dollar settlements for her clients. She brought that experience to her own practice, which she started at the end of 2014.
Named one of Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars consecutively for five years in a row, Patti believes her clients deserve focused and personal attention, and thus, she takes great pride in maintaining a smaller case load. This allows her to go the extra mile for each and every client and get the best result possible in each and every case.
Patti is equally zealous about fundraising and performing. She served as President of California Western School of Law’s Alumni Association Board of Directors and has worked with organizations such as the San Diego Volunteer Lawyers Program, Lawyers Club of San Diego and the American Board of Trial Advocates, volunteering as a humorist and host for events such as The Red Boudreau Dinner, Couture for a Cause, and The LAF-Off.
As a lover of the outdoors, many of Patti’s current fundraising efforts are focused on the environment and the protection of animals. She supports organizations such as National Wildlife Federation, Rancho Coastal Humane Society, and PARC (Protect American River Canyons), among others.
She has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Southern California, and she still performs on a regular basis at music venues around California.
