Jim McCabe represents individuals and businesses in employment and business matters. Prior to starting his firm, Jim was an attorney for many years for one of the largest and most prestigious law firms in the country. During that time, Jim represented some of the nation’s largest companies in their most sensitive and complicated employment and business-related disputes. Jim observed that many of the individuals against whom he litigated lacked the same resources, skill and devotion from their attorneys. Jim started his firm out of a desire to provide that same access to justice for individuals and businesses of all sizes who have been harmed in employment and business matters. 

Jim grew up in Tyrone, Georgia, where he played football, basketball and golf at Sandy Creek High School and was voted by his fellow students the most respected person in his graduating class. He went to Wheaton College in Chicago, where he graduated cum laude with his bachelor’s degree in philosophy and ancient languages (Hebrew and Greek) and a master’s degree in theology. Jim obtained his law degree from Pepperdine University School of Law, where he was selected to be on the appellate moot court team.

Jim is married to his wife Marianne, and they are blessed with two children.  Jim and Marianne love to spend their free time in the outdoors, cooking, golfing, traveling, reading, and spending time with family and friends.

Highly Recommended
Jim came highly recommended by an attorney who I've known for years and respect. When I contacted Jim about my racial discrimination case he was immediately responsive. He took the time to listen and understand the details of my situation. He was honest and straightforward about my options. He also assured me that he would help me in anyway he could. I hired Jim and he helped me navigate a very challenging time in my career. He negotiated in my best interest, kept me up to speed during every step and worked to a quick resolution. I hope I never need an attorney again. But if I do, Jim will be the first person I call!

They make sure YOU & your potential case are a fit, they take it seriously.
For context, my background is digital healthcare. I was being strong armed by an employer to sign a separation agreement within 48 hours of a termination in order to receive a severance package. That being said, I was only at this corporate role for 3 weeks, and certain issues didn't add up of why they were letting me go. Google search after Google search just kept getting me law firms that treated me as a sales lead. The kind of places that "Can't give consults without taking all of my info so that a paralegal's assistant could call me back", or "Don't do free consults" and still want your call back info, I lucked out and found James McCabe. Not only was he and his team super responsive and attentive, they vetted me for HOURS ahead of taking my case, which I did appreciate, because that showed that I wasn't just a "sales lead", and that if they get some cash; great, and if not, oh well. They are not those guys. They made it very clear after a few phone calls that not only did we have a case, but we would win it. They were also very clear and upfront on timelines and ensuring/making sure that I didn't have false pretenses of when/how/etc, this would be resolved. Some may not like this, but you can only move as fast as the opposing party and the law will permit. Jim and his team could've reached a settlement for a much larger amount (though the amount settled was by no means small) if the my timeline permitted, but I simply had personal/work obligations that wouldn't allow it. We did settle/win, and very quickly. If you want a legitimate law-firm that will never put an infomercial on day time television, or have their staff do the work so that they never have to speak with you, I'd go with The McCabe Law Firm all day. Top shelf these gentleman are.

Call The McCabe Law Firm
I have personally used Jim McCabe at The McCabe Law Firm several times and I have recommended him to many of my friends over the years when they were involved in contract negotiations with their employer. You will find it VERY beneficial to seek Jim’s wise counsel and expertise before signing any employment contract, separation agreement, or severance package.

A great advocate and counselor
My family and I would like to thank Jim McCabe for his excellent counsel during a very difficult period in my career. It took me a little over two months to decide whether or not to seek legal counsel. The circumstances were sensitive and disheartening at best but after our first conversation, Jim gave me the confidence and security I needed to move forward with my case. He was an incredible advocate and great listener providing me real-time feedback and solutions. He was insightful and my champion, maneuvering through legal processes and procedures that ultimately worked out in my/ family's favor.

Wonderful!!!!
I was referred to Mr Mccabe by another attorney ( who moved out of town). I was a bit skeptical at first since this was a current employer. He eased all of my concerns and basically told me to saddle up as this was not going to be easy. He responded promptly to all questions and concerns and gave me valuable advice. He also took time to listen and allow me to provide suggestions. He respected that even though I’m not an attorney, this is my life and I need to be comfortable with whatever the outcome is. I’m sure at times he thought “ this lady is so stubborn” but he still made me an active participant in the decision making process. Within 90 days we had a settlement. I would recommend Jim McCabe to anyone!!!!

Very pleased!
I happened to find Mr. McCabe from a generic google search, but I was very pleased with his expertise and knowledge throughout my case. Jim was very upfront with me prior to taking my case, and communicated with me every step of the way. We settled a month later, and I would recommend his services to anyone.

Excellent Service and Results
Attorney McCabe was retained to represent me in an age discrimination case. He was clear in explaining the process and thorough in keeping me informed throughout the mediation steps. I can not imagine having a more professional and skilled attorney to handle my case. The successful results are due to his ability to honestly and patiently articulate the issues as well as his knowledge and experience working with large companies. I would gladly recommend Attorney McCabe to anyone needing his services.

So Thankful!
During a very difficult time, I was referred to James McCabe after reaching out to another Lawyer who was unable to help me. James was incredibly diligent and thorough in our consultation and guided me 100% through the process. He remained considerate of my situation and provided much needed counsel for myself before and during the process. I am extremely grateful for having hired James McCabe and am certain anyone else would as well.

Excellent
I contacted Mr. McCabe based off of an issue that I had with my former employer. Mr. McCabe was very honest and upfront pertaining to how I could handle the situation. Based off of Mr. McCabe's advice, I was able to solve my situation WITHOUT proceeding to court. I would recommend anyone to consult with Mr. McCabe; he's a good man.
