Zoltán is committed to the practical, client-focused delivery of legal services. He has more than 25 years of experience working as a lawyer in South Africa and Western Australia, practising mainly in the areas of insurance law, workers compensation and personal injury law.
Zoltán completed his Bachelor of Laws alongside a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Law and International Relations from the University of Witwatersrand in 1989. He then went on to complete a Post Graduate Diploma in Employment Law from Rand Afrikaans University in 1993 and a few years later, a Diploma in General Management from the University of South Africa’s Graduate School of Business.
Zoltán was admitted as an attorney of the Supreme Court of South Africa in 1993 and while in South Africa practiced mainly in the areas of insurance law and employment law, working for an insurance provider for 7 years before establishing his own law firm, Kozma Attorneys in 1999.
In 2008 Zoltán relocated to Western Australia and was admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of Western Australia in 2010. Since then, he has worked mainly in insurance law (specialising in personal injury matters) but also in general litigation and commercial law.
Zoltán has gained invaluable experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in common law claims, ranging from negotiated settlements to general litigation conducted in the Administrative Appeals Tribunal and District Court. His practical approach and experience in acting for both plaintiffs and defendants has also helped him to achieve favourable settlements for his clients through a range of formal and informal negotiations.
At IRDI Legal, Zoltán’s focus will be on Church related matters working within our Litigation practice.
