About Me

I began my career working as a lawyer in a big corporation, so I know the lengths they will go to in order to undercut an injured party's claim and to ensure the company's bottom line is protected. I am thrilled to now be practicing as a trial attorney protecting people injured by the negligence of others, whether by a vehicle accident, aviation disaster, or a disability.  My clients' best interest are the important bottom line and that makes being an attorney worthwhile to me.  I practice primarily in workers compensation and disability law, and provide appellate support in aviation and injury cases for the rest of the firm.

    Jim is the best writer I have ever seen. He puts our firm on the same level as the largest firms in the Country. I've co-signed briefs Jim has written from CA to PA and knew they could have not been written better. We are lucky to have his talent.

    Jim is a skilled attorney and very good at what he does. I've known and worked with Jim over several years. His professionalism is impressive as well as his dedication. In addition to knowledge in the fields of injury and disability law, I have always been impressed with his appellate court work, his attention to detail and ability to write are fantastic. I don't hesitate to recommend Jim.
