Jim Holland has spent over a decade litigating cases in the State of Washington. After graduating near the top of his class in law school Mr. Holland spent several years at the prestigious law firm of Perkins Coie practicing products liability and aviation accident defense litigation. He left the defense practice for the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office where he tried more than thirty cases to local juries. After sharpening his trial skills as a prosecutor Mr. Holland returned to civil litigation, where he has obtained substantial verdicts and awards, including a $2.4 million dollar award for his client in a real estate partnership dispute, a $10,000,000 judgment for the wrongful death of a 17 year-old girl, and a $2,000,000 settlement against the Kent School District for injury to a student-athlete during a sports practice.
Mr. Holland currently focuses the majority of his practice on wrongful death and other personal injury actions, including products liability, medical negligence, car and truck wrecks, aviation crashes and insurance bad faith. He has dedicated his practice to helping injured people fight large corporations and insurance companies to find truth and hold those responsible accountable. Jim routinely writes and lectures to trial lawyers across the state.
