Jack Tuckner, and indeed the entire Tuckner Sipser firm, were a beacon of hope when my entire world seemed clouded over by the actions of my employer.
Jack stuck with me throughout my very complex and far-reaching case. The settlement I received is one that I would never have been able to get without Jack’s help, and what was even more important to me, is that Jack went far above and beyond the call of duty to make sure the language in my agreement was as close to what I wanted as possible.
His advice about how to stay focused on what was important, not to take things personally, and how to move on into a new and fresh phase in my family’s life got me through one of the darkest periods of my life; thanks to Jack I have emerged on the other side a stronger, more self-assured person who now realizes that I have the right to respect and fair treatment in all areas of life.
If you have a voice that needs to be heard, Jack Tuckner will lend you his, and it will echo through the subway and streets of New York City. His passion, knowledge and integrity for championing the rights for women, no matter what their profession, will help those who want to make change possible. Thanks for everything.
In the short time that I’ve known Jack Tuckner, I felt like I’ve known him forever. Jack is very compassionate and understanding and he gave me so much support as I was dealing with a bad situation. My experience working with him was truly wonderful. His knowledge and experience is beyond words. Therefore ladies, if you’re being mistreated and abused in the workplace, Jack is your man.
I’m very grateful for Mr. Sipser’s help! When I first met with him, I left feeling relieved because he asked all the right questions. I had been contacting other attorneys, but Mr. Sipser did not hesitate to work with me on a contingency basis. Other attorneys wanted fees that I couldn’t afford because I had just lost my job, which is why I needed an attorney! Other attorneys don’t explain much, but Mr. Sipser answered all my questions and told me what to do next. I was very happy with him as my lawyer.
