on Jack Tuckner:
I know that it isn't always easy, even in New York City, to find lawyers in private
practice who truly "get it" and are real fighters for their clients, not just in it for
the money. My dear friend and former student when I taught at CUNY, Jack
Tuckner, is a founding partner of just such a firm. Jack is the greatest: an ex-
professional actor, ex-Legal Aid Criminal Defense Division trial lawyer,
flamboyant, unflappable, brilliant, savvy, clever, sweet, kind, compassionate,
funny, dedicated, insanely hard-working, and with a serious jones for justice.
And his Sipser Weinstock partners, as you may know, are old rad union lawyers
-- in fact they represented me and everyone else who worked at the Legal Aid
Society back in the day when the Association of Legal Aid Attorneys was young
and just beginning to take action to secure, e.g., continuity of representation for
our clients. What a formidable combination! The firm specializes in the
representation of women, LGBT or otherwise, who have been denied their rights
or victimized in the workplace -- whether because they also are victims of
domestic violence [see NYC's progressive new law] or not. But of course, they
are not about to turn away a man who needs help, either. If you know someone
who needs a consultation -- or if you should ever want to work with such a firm
-- I wanted you to know about Jack.
