Great listener, thoughtful and skilled in her approach
From the first conversation, Tamara put me at ease as I felt she actively listened and took a personal interest in how she could assist me. She provided skillful leadership and guidance throughout my negotiations. In addition, she was consistent in providing updates and answering questions in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Tamara to a friend or colleague as I would be confident that they would be treated with respect and professionalism all while receiving the best legal guidance and results!

Difficult time
I worked with Tamara on a very difficult and sensitive situation involving an unscrupulous employer and some outrageous actions from top members of their management team. Lies, manipulation, falsification of records and efforts to cover their tracks with more lies made the situation even worse than the original actions. Tamara managed the situation to the best ending and helped me find appropriate support professionals to help me through the many challenges as a result of their actions. I would hire her again.

Tamara Huckert
Tamara is a pleasure to work with. She always kept me informed and was quick to respond to every question I had. She is also patient and will take the time to explain everything clearly. She even took time to communicate with me after hours and weekends which I never expected. She is extremely computant and will work diligently to solve your case. I highly recommend Tamara as the attorney to go to with your work related legal matters.

Quick Results
I had a case that other lawyers did not want to help me with and after researching lawyers in my area I found Tamara Huckert. She took my case and even recommend me to a former colleague of hers to pursue a separate lawsuit for my case. Without a doubt she delivered and kept me in the loop the entire time and was very quick in her process. Thank you Mrs. Huckert!

Tamara takes the time to listen to her client and makes sure that you understand the options before you make a decision. It was also helpful that she kept me in the loop so I wasn't wondering what was going on. I would definitely recommend her whether you are looking for just a consultation or if you need to take action.

Integrity and Honesty
I went to Tamara based on a friends recommendation during a difficult time for me and my family. She was very professional and compassionate when handling my case. Tamara has great experience and guided us to what I believe was the best solution for me and my family. I really appreciated her honesty and integrity. Two qualities that are hard to find in any industry these days!

Strategic and Detailed

Professional and Results-Oriented Attorney
Very professional attorney that helped me in my case against a local Fortune 50 company when no other lawyer would. Tamara reviewed the details of my severance package, spoke with me about my limited options, and was very honest about my chances in negotiating additional severance. Despite what seemed like a 50-50 shot at success, she represented and fought for me and was able to negotiate two additional months of severance and a relaxing of several clauses in my original severance agreement. Throughout the entire process, Tamara was professional, kept me informed of any updates, and gave me her honest feedback. In a time when stress is at a maximum, she was certainly a breath of fresh air. I will certainly keep Tamara in mind if I ever need legal assistance going forward.

Tamara Really Cares!
I was a client of Ms. Huckert concerning a post employment agreement. I live outside of Charlotte and have a busy schedule. She was accommodating by taking my case by way of phone and email conversations. Even though these were not face to face meetings, I could tell that Tamara was a great person and genuinely cared about helping me in negotiating the settlement agreement. The entire team was responsive to any of my questions or concerns along the way. Tamara made it clear to me that she understands the stress and emotions that can be involved in a post employment case. This helped to put my mind at ease, as I had never experienced this situation. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.

Recommendation for Tamara Huckert
I met with Tamara Huckert to review and discuss my case for unpaid vacation time. She and her staff were attentive and respectful during my initial visit. She shared with me various options on how we could pursue my claim, options on how I could retain her and provided me updates throughout the process. She was able to settle out of court and a timely fashion. I would without any reservations hire her and her staff to represent me again if need be in the future.

Highly effective
I came to Tamara Huckert for ongoing advice and assistance about my employment situation from late 2014 through mid 2015. Her advice was specific and actionable, and her documentation is clear and concise. She is highly knowledgeable and a very effective communicator. She was available by appointment in person, by phone, and by email. Her responses were always prompt. Her rates are reasonable. I would have no hesitation in returning to her for advice in the future for similar and related issues. Overall, I was very pleased with her services and she has my highest recommendation.

Highly recommended employment attorney
Tamara is a competent and talented attorney who I have worked with on several occasions, including review of employment contracts, non-compete provisions, and severance agreements. She is sensitive to the short turnaround times often required in employment-related situations, and always gives solid advice based on the facts at hand. She is a skilled negotiator, and always has her client's best interests at heart. She is very fair in billing for her services, and was worth every penny. I wouldn't go to anyone else in Charlotte for legal representation for employment-related matters!

Tamara was very knowledgeable and worked very hard in representing me and getting me the money I was entitled to. I felt she did everything possible in my best interest.

Great Service, Great Work, Great Expectations!
Tamara was a pleasure to work with reviewing a severance package I had received from my former company in 2013. She was through, knowledgeable, and timely in her review and recommendations. The recommendations, changes and guidance Tamara provided proved invaluable. She spent the needed time and energy to guide me through the separation process, helped me better understand my rights, and gained my complete trust. Tamara's efforts exceeded my expectations.
