About Meira Zucker

Her legal career and prior experiences have made her unafraid to make difficult decisions. Above all else, she remains adherent to the rule of law with the goal of justice for all, whether they be plaintiffs, defendants, or victims. In addition, she has an unwavering commitment to maintaining the efficiency and structure of the judicial system, focusing not only on the details of the law but also on the administration of the whole court.

Meira came to law later in life than others. This varied career path has resulted in her developing a keen understanding of the complexities of her clients’ and colleagues’ circumstances and obligations. Today, she engages clients and coworkers with the empathy and skill that comes from these life experiences.

Meira plans to use this awareness to create a courtroom more responsive to the needs of the community, with respect to efficient use of both time and tax dollars. While practicing in other courts through Northwest Ohio, she saw many judges lack a basic understanding of the lives, pressures, and needs of the people before them. Whether you are a defendant, victim, or plaintiff, Meira Zucker will show you respect and understanding.
