The lawyers at Zuckerman Spaeder have a common goal—to provide clients with sophisticated and zealous representation. Our success is driven by a commitment to our clients, the close relationships among attorneys who have worked together for years, and hiring attorneys of exceptional skill and character. 

We seek attorneys who are capable of the intellectual rigor and passionate advocacy that are the firm’s hallmarks. We are highly selective and evaluate each candidate carefully. We expect those we hire to become part of the fabric of the firm and trusted friends and colleagues for years to come.

There are many reasons to come to Zuckerman Spaeder. We attract high-profile representations, ranging from high-stakes criminal cases to bet-the-company civil litigation and complicated class action matters. We staff our cases as leanly as possible and call upon our young attorneys to assume significant responsibility. And we work in a warm, close-knit environment, where we cultivate personal relationships based not only on life in the office, but also life outside of it.


We value the whole person at Zuckerman Spaeder, and that principle is reflected in a comprehensive benefits program that pays attention to overall health and fitness, in addition to enabling you to plan for your financial future.

We value family in its many forms and recognize this through programs that protect your loved ones’ well-being. Full-time employees can choose from a menu of benefits, varying by office.
