Washingtonian magazine named Eric Bachman and Jason Zuckerman among the top whistleblower lawyers in its December 2018 top lawyers’ edition. Washingtonian compiles its list of Washington DC’s top legal talent based on a survey of the attorneys recognized in its 2017 list, asking whom they consider the best among their peers.
Eric Bachman represents whistleblowers and victims of discrimination. Recently he secured a $1.3M verdict in an age discrimination case tried before a jury in D.C. Superior Court with co-counsel Bernabei Kabat, PLLC. Bachman previously served as Deputy Special Counsel, Litigation and Legal Affairs at the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC), and Special Litigation Counsel and Senior Trial Attorney in the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice. Bachman’s wins include a $100 million settlement in a disparate impact Title VII class action, a record-setting Whistleblower Protection Act settlement at OSC, and a $16 million class action settlement against a major grocery chain. Bachman began his career as a public defender and has served as lead or co-counsel in numerous jury trials.
Jason Zuckerman represents whistleblowers in whistleblower retaliation and whistleblower rewards claims, including claims brought under the Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower protection law. Prior to founding Zuckerman Law, he served as Senior Legal Advisor to the Special Counsel at OSC, where he worked on several high-profile investigations and enforcement actions, including a whistleblower retaliation case resulting in the removal of an Inspector General. He also took an active role in the agency’s implementation of the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act, expanded the agency’s outreach program, and drafted amicus curiae briefs on the scope of whistleblower rights and protections.
