Could not be better
I feel very lucky to have found Liz Zuckerman. She has. Given me many great ideas, and has been honest with me when she feels it would be difficult to prove discrimination. When she did fight for me to get accommodations, she was tough, yet diplomatic. Liz Zuckerman has all the qualities you want in an advocate: intelligence, diplomacy, honesty, compassion, and strength. She is highly regarded by her peers, and reaIly knows her stuff! I I think the world of her, and highly recommend her.

Top Notch!
I had the pleasure of working with Ms. Zuckerman on an employment matter and she was thorough, responsive, approachable and maybe most importantly knowledgeable. She provide wonderful insight and I was so pleased with the end result.

Knowledgeable and Easy to Work With
I just finished working with Liz on a separation agreement. (This was the second time I retained her.) She did a great job! She was very knowledgeable about all of the elements of the matter and helped me understand the options in front of me. With her guidance, we reached a satisfactory outcome. I would recommend Liz on any employment matters. She is incredibly easy to work with.

A True Professional!
I've had a great experience with Liz. She is thorough, patient, persistent and pragmatic. She negotiated a settlement to a messy, mentally exhausting and unsustainable situation in a short timeframe - and I am delighted with the result. I highly recommend Liz for her approach, attention to detail, knowledge, experience and track record. I'm glad she was on my side!

Highly recommended
My situation was very similar to reviewer David's in which a local (national) educational organization deliberately developed a case against me after 15 years of loyal service and outstanding performance reviews and ratings. They terminated me just before I qualified for retiree medical benefits. Liz was very effective and highly professional in negotiating an acceptable agreement. I highly recommend her.

She was a strong advocate for my interests from the beginning, and balanced my needs and expectations, with achieving a quick and fair resolution to the matter. She is experienced and well versed in all legal issues. She is well respected among attorneys, which means good results for her clients. I would recommend Liz for any issues related to employment legal matters.

Job Discrimination Case
Liz Zuckerman did an outstanding job defending me in a job discrimination suit without going to trial. She is extremely astute in law and procedure for this type of case and will not let you get pushed around when it comes to arbitration or settlement. Liz was also very professional and very caring in her demeanor, and always replied to questions or thoughts involving my case in a very quick and timely manner. Not once did I have to chase or wait when having questions about my case, and was mostly answered in the same day whether she was busy or not. My case was settled agreeably without hast and in a very judicious manner. I highly recommend Liz Zuckerman to defend you with her expertise in Employment and labor, Discrimination, Sexual harassment cases. Sincerely, Tom

Elementary Vice Principal
Liz Zuckerman was professional and informative throughout my experience with her. I always felt that she had my best interests at heart. Her communications with me and opposing counsel was very thorough and extremely prompt. I am quite satisfied with the outcome of my case and would recommend her without hesitation. A family friend recommended her to me and I am extremely grateful for the referral.

Forced Retirement
After 42 years of loyal professional service with an institute of higher education, HR begain a deliberate attempt to make my working environment personally uncomfortable. My work performance as an Engineer has always been impeccable, so they needed to create false allegations of negative behavior in order to try and build a case against me. I knew I was losing control of the situations when I was eventually put on an 18 probation followed by a 1 week suspension. I finally realized that everything was just a guise to try and get rid of me because of my age and high salary position. In an attempt to regain control, I then requested a separation package and hired Liz as my outside counsel. At that point HR took me serious as we started a negotiation process. Right from the start Liz made me feel comfortable and helped me take charge of my life. Encouraged me to go out on disability for awhile to give me time to relax and gather my thoughts. I contracted Liz under a commission basis to give her skin in the game. HR had offered me 6 months severance. Liz was able to increase it to 9 months along with 3 months on disability. It was a painful few months however I feel I did come out a winner thanks to Liz's experience, support and guidance.

Liz represented me to maximize termination benefits
Liz worked efficiently to negotiate terms of my separation from a former employer. She was responsive, realistic, and reasonable in her approach to me as a client, as well as in her interactions with the opposing counsel. Would recommend without reservation.

Employment and labor Attorney | Feb 28
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have worked closely with Liz Zuckerman since 2020 and am proud to endorse her. Having represented employers since 2006, I had deep substantive knowledge about employment law, but no experience representing individuals. Liz has been a wonderful mentor and guide as I learn the "plaintiffs' side" of the business. From a client perspective, Liz is an exemplary lawyer. She responds to both prospective and current clients expeditiously. Her clients do not wait weeks or months to find out what is going on with their case. Liz gives clients intelligent, forthright, and realistic evaluations of their cases. She advocates for clients using well-crafted factual and legal arguments, rather than just being a "bulldog" who seeks to intimidate. Liz has a proven track record of negotiating advantageous resolutions for her clients, so they can avoid litigation and move on with their lives. Liz truly cares about and wants to help each and every one of her clients."
