Deron, a member of the New York and Georgia Bars, Deron is active in his church, and is dedicated to making a difference in his community, particularly as a role model for youth and up and coming business professionals. Even as a youngster he was fascinated by the pace and excitement of the entertainment world–particularly its pop and r&b music components! This attraction, coupled with an analytical mind, led him to choose Entertainment Law as his life’s work. With a Juris Doctorate from Touro Law Center and a B.A. in Sociology from Queens College (where he was on the Dean’s List), Deron Tucker believes in the power of “good communication skills”. He also believes that a “win at all costs” approach to negotiations can sometimes be a deal-killer.
“I hope I can make a difference in someone’s life…either as a role model or by providing helpful advice,” he says.
Deron resides with his wife in the metro Atlanta, Georgia area. He also represents clientele in the areas of Estate Planning and Business Law.
