Being a strong leader among young lawyers, Zekri is quoted in the Authority magazine article as saying:
“Knowledge is power, and most people know very little about the legal system. So I use my legal training to help the less fortunate as much as possible through pro bono work. I also recognize that I wouldn’t be where I am today without the incredible mentors I’ve met along the way.
