“The greatest advice I ever received when I was young and indecisive about embarking on a new venture and where or how to start was ‘Start at the wrong place.’ I understood that the important thing is to start. Eventually it will lead you to where you want to be.”
Vaios Zamakis has been practicing law for 12 years. His areas of practice concentrate in: Landlord/Tenant, Consumer Finance, Collections, and Foreclosure issues. Vaios assists tenants with lease reviews, and in exercising their rights when landlords fail to maintain the rental property in proper condition, and security deposit issues. In other cases, Vaios assists landlords with tenants’ non-compliance of lease agreements, non-payment of rent, and also security deposit issues. Additionally, he advises borrowers on their rights during foreclosure proceedings, as well as tenants who are living in a home that is in foreclosure. Vaios also assists clients with Consumer Finance and Collection matters, through the drafting of collection, rebuttal, and resolution letters.
Vaios receives tremendous gratification from helping others in need, and he feels that being part of Glantzlaw provides him with a wider opportunity to relentlessly pursuit justice. While in law school, Vaios contributed his time and knowledge to a family law clinic and was responsible for handling divorce and visitation cases. During a summer, while between semesters, Vaios shadowed Judge William Webb in Pasco County, Florida.
Vaios’ interest in foreign affairs and international politics led him to write about world affairs including an article on the Kosovo and Servia conflict that was published by the Boston Globe.
