In 1999, he was chosen to serve on The Florida Bar Civil Trial Law Certification Committee.

Gary M. Zadick is a highly distinguished attorney, born and raised in Great Falls, Montana. In this interview, he talks about his groundbreaking work in the case of In the Matter of the Rules of Professional Conduct and Insurer Imposed Billing Rules and Procedures, which he filed as an original proceeding before the Supreme Court of Montana challenging the national program of “managed care” for the legal defense bar developed and used by all of the major insurers across the country. This was the first time that any attorneys in any state challenged the insurance industry program in a court. Gary joined all insurers doing business in Montana in the proceeding and asked the Supreme Court to issue a declaration concerning the national program which: 1) required defense lawyers to request permission from the insurer before doing much of anything and 2) required defense lawyers to submit their bills to outside auditors who adjusted the bills (i.e. reduced) based upon a review of the bill without reviewing the actual work product and also caused a disclosure of client confidential information that would violate the attorney-client relationship and privilege.
Gary is also an active member of his community, where he was a Deputy Cascade County Attorney from 1978-1979. He has been an associate professor of evidence and criminal procedure at the College of Great Falls. Gary attended the University of Montana and obtained a B.A. in Economics and Political Science in 1975. He then attended the University of Montana School of Law where he obtained his JD degree in 1978. He has also been a frequent lecturer at the University of Montana School of Law and other continuing legal education seminars on the issue of insurance.
