    I endorse this lawyer.I have known Jim since our days at Stanford Law School some years ago. He has been a friend, a colleague and a client (as corporate counsel). Jim is one of the brightest and toughest civil litigators I have come across, and it is my field too. He is decisive, relentless, always thinks of the client first, and shows excellent judgment and instincts in his strategic and tactical approaches to a problem or situation. He is consummate professional in the best sense of the word.
