Standing Up For The Right Thing
It’s easy to look the other way. It’s tempting to get in on the action. But some people are compelled to speak up when they see wrongdoing, even at great risk to themselves.
My Dallas law firm, the Law Offices of James R. Tucker, P.C., is a boutique law practice representing whistleblowers and other plaintiffs in Texas and beyond. In my more than 35 years as a trial lawyer, I have recovered more than $700 million for my clients in cases ranging from personal injury to business litigation. For the past decade, I have almost exclusively represented whistleblowers who need someone to help them take a stand for what’s right.

An Accomplished Trial Lawyer With Demonstrated Success
I started my career in the late 1980s with a large Dallas law firm. I started my own law firm in 1992 and have represented plaintiffs as a solo attorney ever since, with the exception of 2000 to 2005 when I partnered with John Ratcliffe (and his wife Michelle) as Tucker & Ratcliffe, LLP. We had great success then and have each excelled since in different ways. Mr. Ratcliffe became a U.S. Attorney in Texas, then a U.S. Congressman, and recently served as Director of National Intelligence under President Trump.
I resumed my solo practice and since 2010 or so I have immersed myself in whistleblower law and fraud litigation. The year 2019 was my most successful year in terms of results obtained, including obtaining a judgment of $339 million in a home health care fraud whistleblower case. I also represented whistleblowers who filed qui tam lawsuits (along with another relator) against a company that settled with the state of Texas in 2019 for $235.9 million (my clients’ share of that recovery has yet to be determined).
I am AV-rated* by Martindale Hubbell under its peer review system. I am also a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, an elite society of trial lawyers who have obtained million-dollar or multimillion-dollar jury verdicts.
You Can Afford High-Quality Legal Representation
At the Law Offices of James R. Tucker, P.C., 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.
You need a lawyer who has what it takes to win – the experience, resources and drive to get results. You need me, attorney Rusty Tucker. Call my Dallas law offices at 214-617-2181 or contact me online.
