Born and raised in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area, Mr. Arzabe attended the University of Maryland, where he was a dean’s list student, member of The University of Maryland Mock Trial Team, and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. After one too many cold northern winters, Mr. Arzabe moved to Fort Lauderdale to attend the Shepard Broad College of Law at Nova Southeastern University. Mr. Arzabe excelled academically at the Shepard Broad College of Law as a dean’s list student and a member of several honor societies, including the Nova Trial Association and the Moot Court Society.
During law school Mr. Arzabe clerked at two personal injury law firms learning injury and tort law from the early pre-suit stages throughout the entire litigation process. Upon graduating law school, Mr. Arzabe accepted an attorney position with a prominent civil defense firm wherein he gained extensive litigation experience defending insurance companies and their insureds in various injury and wrongful death actions.
After three years of defending the insurance companies, Mr. Arzabe joined Zappitell Law Firm, bringing the tools he had learned working for the opposition with him. Mr. Arzabe now dedicates his entire legal practice to representing individuals and their families in personal injury and wrongful death cases. He values the trust his clients place in him and strives to achieve the optimal result in every case.
In his spare time, Mr. Arzabe enjoys traveling, spending time with his family and friends, exercising, playing and watching sports, and volunteering in his local communities.
