  • Jack Bryant Tuckner

    Dov Kesselman has been my adversary on several cases over the years, and I've always found him to be honest, direct, reasonable and fair. He fights hard for his clients while still maintaining a respectful and balanced posture in relation to his adversary, which ultimately serves his clients optimally, as he doesn't escalate the hostilities just to be macho--or just to rack up his bill--he cares deeply about resolving matters in creative ways that serve his clients' best interest, which is often to recommend a compromise resolution that allow the parties to reach an agreement swfitly and with little to no unnecessary litigation costs and expenses, and through his finesse as an advocate, both side can walk away feeling vindicated. Dov's a Mensch in the truest sense of the term--a person of high integrity and honor.
