Pryce G. Tucker

Partner

Over two decades of practice, Pryce has represented domestic and international corporations in high-exposure litigation in state and federal courts nationwide. He has defended against wrongful death, catastrophic personal injury, and large property-damage claims involving commercial and consumer products, oilfield equipment and accidents, and interstate transportation.

In recent years, he joined a team of trial lawyers handling thousands of product liability claims pending nationwide and in multi-district litigation in New York and Texas. His product liability experience covers a broad range of topics, including industrial equipment; forklifts; seatbelt systems, airbags, seat backs, rollovers, window glazing, roof crush, planar crashworthiness, and automotive handling and stability; post-crash vehicle fires; motorcycles; and interstate motor coaches. He has also defended against numerous fire cases, an area he was drawn to from his firefighting background.

While he’s a strong believer in courtroom advocacy, Pryce also gets results outside the courtroom by developing and cultivating productive relationships with opposing counsel, and relying on his formal mediation training.

Before entering private practice, he clerked for two years with the Honorable Kathryn H. Vratil, United States District Court for the District of Kansas. During his federal court clerkship, he drafted memorandum opinions and orders on dispositive issues in a range of civil cases, including antitrust litigation, telecommunications litigation, tort actions, employment discrimination suits, bankruptcy appeals, breach-of-contract matters, and civil rights cases.

Playing the Blues

Pryce aspires to be a blues harmonica player, but he’s surrounded by tough music critics – friends and colleagues compare his playing of the 12-bar blues to a cat with its tail caught in a screen door.
