Zac Tankard

Zac Tankard, the Principal Solicitor at Tankard’s Law, specialised early in his career because he was passionate about protecting people’s rights. He knew that when someone is faced with hefty fines and/or imprisonment it can affect a person's life and their family's lives for years. He felt there was much at stake and that is worth fighting for.

Tankard's Law is headed by Zac Tankard, an extremely experienced and hardworking criminal law solicitor who has been practising criminal law in Local and District Courts throughout the Riverina since 1998.   

He has a passion for criminal law and understands the finer points of the law.
