Working exclusively in the private practice of law, he has represented scores of individuals, corporations and non profit organizations in both the civil and criminal courts.

He was employed as an accounting supervisor for a large mutual fund portfolio manager when he graduated from the New England School of Law in 1991 and was admitted to the practice of law. Attorney Tucker is a member of the Massachusetts and the New Hampshire Bar, the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, the U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire, the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court.
