Dedicated To Helping
Plaintiffs Find Justice
There are many times when civil litigation cannot be avoided. If you have discovered your employer is committing fraud and have been threatened with retaliation if you reveal the activity; if a loved one has been permanently injured or their life cut short by an accident; or if you have experienced the results of insurers acting in bad faith or businesses engaging in deceptive trade practices, you are likely to need an experienced civil litigation attorney to help you press your case and hold the other parties involved accountable.
I am attorney James “Rusty” Tucker, and my decades of experience as a civil litigator mean I have the skills and the resources to navigate complex cases. At the Law Offices of James R. Tucker, P.C., I can bring in the appropriate experts and collect critical evidence to increase your chances of success.
I have operated my own law firm since 1992, except for the years 2000 to 2005, when I had the pleasure of practicing with former Texas Congressman and former U.S. Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe. I have secured multimillion-dollar awards and settlements for clients in personal injury, wrongful death, and whistleblower/qui tam law suits. I strive to provide all of my clients with exceptional personal service.
Everyone Should Be Able To
Afford High-Quality Representation
At my firm, I take all cases on contingency – even business litigation and securities fraud cases. What does this mean for you? It means that you do not need to have money upfront to hire an attorney. You only pay attorney’s fees if I recover compensation for you, either through a settlement or a favorable jury verdict. It also means that you can be sure that I am invested in your success because I only collect compensation if you win. Because I have a great deal at stake, you can be sure that I will fight hard for you from the moment I take your case until I negotiate a settlement or win at trial.
