“Achieving Justice” with Zach Gwin, candidate for Judge of the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas
Zach Gwin says it’s a lifelong passion for public service that motivated him to run to serve his community as judge of the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas.
In this latest “Achieving Justice” video Justice Jennifer Brunner talks with Gwin about his current role in the Columbus City Attorney’s Office working to improve the quality of life of Columbus residents and how his upbringing called him to a life of public service.
Since becoming an attorney in 2012, Gwin has built a diverse portfolio of legal experience both public and private. He has experience as a private attorney handling criminal defense and civil litigation and service in the City Attorney’s Office for the City of Columbus in a variety of roles including trial prosecutor and most recently handling public nuisance litigation in the Environmental Division.
Even before pursuing his law degree, Zach was focused on helping the community, serving as a victim-witness advocate in the Stark County Prosecutor’s Office in his hometown of Canton.
Zach is a native of Canton, Ohio, and received a bachelor’s degree from Miami University and law degree from The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law. Zach lives in Franklinton with his wife, Margaret, son, Ronan, and rescue dog, Chewie.
Justice Brunner started "Achieving Justice" in 2020 during her campaign for the Ohio Supreme Court. The program educates individuals about Ohio's judicial system and the judges and candidates for judge who serve and wish to serve their state and community.

“Serving the people and the cause of justice is one of the most important callings in our democratic system,” Justice Brunner said. “I believe that the more information the public has about the courts, their judges, and judicial candidates, the stronger our system is.”
Justice Brunner is a candidate for Chief Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court in 2022.
