Zachary Schaengold

Zach Schaengold joined the Washington D.C. Offices of Baron & Budd in 2021 as an associate with the Opioid Litigation Group. Before joining Baron & Budd, Mr. Schaengold advocated on behalf of people and public interest matters at the plaintiff-side class action law firm Markovits, Stock & DeMarco, LLC, and as an assistant attorney general in the office of the Ohio Attorney General.

Mr. Schaengold’s experience as a law clerk to a federal judge showed him just how important it is for a client to choose the right lawyer—and law firm—to represent him. He also knows how critical it is for a client to have confidence that their attorney understands their needs. “What we do as lawyers has real consequences for our clients. The people we represent do not get to leave the results of a case at the courtroom door. As attorneys, we can never forget this reality, and must always strive to help change our clients’ lives for the better.”

Although he considers himself a native of Cincinnati, Mr. Schaengold previously lived in Wisconsin and in New Mexico, spending time on the Navajo Reservation and in Albuquerque. Mr. Schaengold also lived in France for two years, and spent a summer conducting research at the Netherlands Institute for Human Rights in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Getting to know the people and developing friendships in each of these places provided Mr. Schaengold with valuable insight into how the diversity of human experiences influences perceptions across the globe.

Mr. Schaengold recognizes that the practice of law is a privilege and a responsibility, and stays active in his local and national bar associations. Outside of the office, Mr. Schaengold enjoys running (albeit slower than when he ran varsity track in college), reading, and spending time with his family.
