Tucker is a phenomenal attorney.
Tucker is a great attorney - you can trust him and you can trust that he knows exactly what he is doing. He puts the necessary time into every case and ensures his clients get his best work product. It would be a mistake not to call him, even if it is about a specific type of case he doesn't handle. He will find an attorney that can help you out and that you can trust.

Put my mind at ease
What an unexpected blessing it was to work with someone like Tucker. I never thought that dealing with a lawyer after a traumatic accident could be so positive, but he has earned the highest review. I immediately trusted him because he was clear with what I could expect and very personable. He was always prompt in his responses through email or the phone, and worked diligently on my case, so much so that I had to do very little. Though I found him to be very accessible and compassionate, I would not want to be on the side opposing him in court. I was referred to Tucker Merrigan by a family member, and I am happy to pass the referral along.
