Our job is to protect your job

At Zuckerman & Fisher, L.L.C., we represent employees only. We first try to resolve employee-employer disputes through negotiations aimed at producing settlements that are fair to our clients and acceptable to their employers. When the client wishes it, the firm participates in mandatory or voluntary arbitrations and mediations, with court-appointed third parties, retired judges or privately selected facilitators. We are all too aware of the costs and pressures of trial, with the attendant emotional hardships on individuals having to repeatedly re-live work experiences they would much rather leave behind; and so we strive to avoid litigation where a negotiated settlement can provide a non-adversarial but fair outcome.

There are occasions, however, when negotiations are not successful. In such instances, and when our clients agree, Zuckerman & Fisher, L.L.C. is committed to aggressive pursuit of claims through litigation. Our Mercer County, NJ harassment lawyers are experienced litigators who have achieved substantial successful conclusions for clients. We are conversant with the rules applying to New Jersey state courts and federal district courts and we do not hesitate to try a case in any of them. We have appeared in the U.S. District Court for New Jersey in its three locations (Newark, Trenton and Camden) and we travel state-wide to pursue our clients’ claims in the following counties:

  • Atlantic County
  • Bergen County
  • Burlington County
  • Camden County
  • Cape May County
  • Cumberland County
  • Essex County
  • Hudson County
  • Gloucester County
  • Hunterdon County
  • Mercer County
  • Middlesex County
  • Monmouth County
  • Morris County
  • Ocean County
  • Passaic County
  • Salem County
  • Somerset County
  • Sussex County
  • Union County
  • Warren County

The firm also handles appeals of court decisions adverse to employees, regardless of whether the firm was involved in the case prior to appeal. We have appellate experience at all levels of the New Jersey state court system and in the federal U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit. Ms. Zuckerman is also admitted to the bar of the U.S. Supreme Court, while Mr. Fisher has filed amicus curiae briefs in the U.S. Supreme Court in matters on which that court issued full opinions. By reason of their former duties in the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office and their practice in employment law, both have levels of appellate experience many attorneys never obtain.

We also encourage employees with knowledge of illegal activities by their employers that cost federal or state taxpayer dollars (e.g., Medicare fraud, inflated charges to government for supplies and parts, etc.) to contact our firm. Where permitted, we pursue qui tam actions against the employers to secure monetary recoveries that benefit not only the government but also the employees bringing to light such activities.

Our goals as your Mercer County discrimination law firm

  • Provision of competent and efficient legal advice and services at a reasonable cost and in a manner affordable to the client (Depending upon the circumstances, we charge an hourly rate, a flat fee, a contingent fee, or a blended arrangement consisting of a reduced hourly rate and contingent fee)
  • Personal attention to clients that may often be lacking from a larger law firm, especially one that otherwise represents corporations and employers
  • Satisfied clients

To achieve these goals, we have intentionally remained small in size and number of cases handled.

Ultimately, one sentence describes the mission of Zuckerman & Fisher, L.L.C.:

“Our Job is to Protect Your Job.”
