Contact Information

A natural trial lawyer, Jim has spent the majority of his career representing victims of medical malpractice. Cumulatively, he has recovered more than $500 million for his clients, participating in 25 verdicts of more than $1 million and three of more than $10 million. Still, Jim finds his greatest professional satisfaction in helping make someone’s life more comfortable as they cope with catastrophic loss.

After trying his first case—and earning a verdict of over $1,000,000—Jim received the ultimate compliment: The defense offered him a job representing doctors and hospitals in medical malpractice cases. After several years working malpractice claims from the defense side, he once again became a plaintiffs’ advocate, realizing that his passion lay in representing victims of wrongdoing.
