Degree, as well as his Master of Business Administration and Master of Science of Alternative Dispute Resolution, from Creighton University and the Werner Institute in 2009.

Mr. Zapala believed that in starting his own practice, he could be more effective in helping people deal with a variety of legal issues.

In 2010, Mr. Zapala founded the Law Office of John Zapala. Opening his own office has allowed Mr. Zapala to fully realize his passion for helping people at all levels of litigation and protection. His passion for business has helped many of his clients find great success with the operation and growth of their own companies.

In 2009, John was the architect of a project to organize tenants of a large (8,000 residential unit) public housing provider. He provided organizational and legal counsel and strategy to a key organizer and assisted in negotiations with the housing provider. He was also a part of the BioScience Entrepreneurship Program at Creighton University where he worked in an interdisciplinary team composed of individuals with legal, business, and science backgrounds to research and put together plans for commercializing university research-based technologies. Mr. Zapala was also awarded the annual Skrupa Award in 2009 from the Abraham’s Community Economic Development Clinic for representing small businesses.

Mr. Zapala is active in a number of professional organizations including the Illinois State Bar Association, a member of the American Bar Association, and a member of the Chicago Bar Association. John treats every client with respect and integrity.
