We Help Victims of Sexual Harassment
Recent high-profile sex harassment scandals (Roger Ailes, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Bill O’Reilly, etc.) highlight the unacceptable fact that sexual harassment in the workplace remains all too prevalent. According to a recent EEOC report, approximately 40% of women have experienced one or more specific sexually-based behaviors in the workplace, such as unwanted sexual attention or sexual coercion.
In the service industry, 66 percent of women reported having been harassed by managers and 30 percent of the women said inappropriate touching was a “common occurrence.”

Client Reviews of Sex Harassment Lawyer Jason Zuckerman
We are proud of our commitment to exceptional client service, including our prompt response to client inquiries and zealous advocacy. Recently Avvo awarded Jason Zuckerman its Client Choice Award based on client reviews. The following two reviews were provided by former clients of Jason Zuckerman concerning sexual harassment matters:
“I truly can’t say enough good things about Jason and his team – they are incredibly effective, professional, and consistently wonderful to work with, even in very high-pressure circumstances. Jason and his colleagues were exceptionally patient with and responsive to my concerns, consulting with me on every step of the process and explaining different options. Beyond their impeccable legal representation and client advocacy, I also felt personally cared for and supported during what was a particularly nightmarish experience of workplace harassment. When needed, they also devoted significant extra time and effort to my case to ensure that my interests were protected. I am incredibly grateful for their representation and wholeheartedly recommend Zuckerman Law to anyone seeking justice in employment-related matters.”
“When I sought out a DC-based attorney to represent me, I expected a competent attorney who would get me through my sexual harassment lawsuit. What I didn’t expect was to find someone like Jason: a truly outstanding attorney who made me feel like a priority, paid close attention to detail, and brought enormous expertise to the table. I chose to hire Jason to represent me after consulting seven other lawyers — and from day one, Jason was the only one who it clear that he actually cared about me and my case. I cannot be happier that I chose Jason. He represented me with professionalism and fearlessness every step of the way. Jason always made me feel like a priority, even though he was busy with other cases/clients simultaneously. He never rushed me or pressured me, and kept me “in the loop” the entire time while we were dealing with the opposing side.”
