ABOUT ZUCKERMAN LAW
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.
And while my case dealt with some uncomfortable material, Jason could not have done a better job making me feel safe and comfortable throughout the process.
Although my journey was a very stressful one, Jason always reassured me and showed me the light at the end of the tunnel. Ultimately, Jason delivered the exact end result I was seeking while avoiding costly litigation and fees.
Thanks to Jason and his outstanding representation, I can now be at ease with my personal and professional life; I can get my career back on track and pick up where I left off before I had these awful experiences in my workplace.
