2021 Up & Coming Attorneys: Seth Zawila

Like many lawyers, Seth Zawila was on the debate team in high school. Unlike some, he’s up front about his motives to pursue law as a career.

“I figured getting paid to run my mouth might not be a bad deal,” Zawila said.

That skill has led to good things for Zawila’s clients. Since joining Robins Kaplan three years ago, he has been involved in large settlements and a successful appeal.

For example, Zawila briefed, argued and won an appeal at the Minnesota Court of Appeals to reverse a dismissal from summary judgment for superseding causation.

Zawila said he jumped at the chance to work at Robins as a way to get his feet wet as soon as possible.

“I wanted as much substantive experience as a young attorney as I could get,” he said. “Joining Robins gave me a chance to really jump in the deep end — privacy work depositions, trial work, you name it.”
