I have been practicing law since 1990. I obtained early litigation experience as a member of the Iowa Legal Clinic while in law school. I also clerked for a personal injury attorney.
I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management. I graduated from the University of Iowa Law School receiving my law degree and graduating with distinction. I am admitted to practice law in both State and Federal Courts in Missouri and Kansas.
I started my legal career working for a defense litigation firm gaining insight into "the other side's" preparation of a civil case. Three years later I joined a law firm in Kansas City, MO and began representing victims of injury accidents and medical negligence. Two years later, I helped start a law firm in Kansas City, MO representing personal injury victims where I became a partner in 1999.
Fourteen years later, I decided I could best serve my clients by opening my own office representing injured victims of personal injury including medical negligence, wrongful death, workers compensation, and more.
I am an endurance athlete and participate in triathlons and marathons. As part of giving back to the community, I raise money for charities and volunteer in those events as well. I am also an active member of the YMCA
Licensed since 1990
Contingent (25-40%), Free Consultation (120 minutes)
James is the lawyer that literally wrote the book on personal injury in Kansas and Missouri. He's the author of four books telling individuals exactly what to do and who to talk to (or not talk to!) following an accident. James works tirelessly for the rights of injured people in Missouri and Kansas and I highly recommend his work.

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means that the attorney's misconduct in another state, or jurisdiction, also violated the rules for practicing law in Missouri.
This sanction means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
