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 and the close working relationships among our attorneys. We hire attorneys of exceptional skill and character. 


We seek attorneys who bring 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.

Judicial Clerks

We highly regard the unique experience that law clerks gain from closely working with judges and observing court proceedings. More than 75% of our attorneys are former judicial clerks. We are courtroom lawyers who try civil and criminal cases in courts and in arbitrations. We also focus on developing strategies and tactics that reflect what our clients hope to achieve. We believe that former clerks bring unique insights to our practice that help us meet those needs. We strongly encourage current and former law clerks to apply.
