I grew up in Sullivan County, went to IU, and then to University of Louisville for Law School.  Afterwards I married and relocated to Parke County, Indiana where my wife and I raised three children.  Our oldest son is married and they have three children. I have enjoyed coaching basketball for a number of years.  I enjoy watching basketball games and discussing the teams strategy of play.  I also enjoy attending basketball games at the high school and college level, both for men and for women. 


The most thing that I like about being an Attorney is helping other people during a difficult time in their life.  I like to make sure that my client's are treated fairly and in accordance with the terms outlined in our laws.

Honest, skilled and trustworthy
Mr. Organ represents everything a quality lawyer should, in a day when it is very difficult to find decent council this law firm stands heads above the rest. Jim Organ is a trustworthy lawyer who will work hard to help you and will not ever give up on you, Jim is honest, to the point and works very hard for results. The Organ law firm represented me and Mr. Organ got me an amazing result considering what I was facing, not many people would've worked so hard and would have been so dedicated to a client but Mr. Organ was and gave my case his all. I continue to seek consul with Mr. Organ and he is quinine, straight forward and honest always. Mr. Organ gave me his time and went past the time he had reserved for me to fully answer my questions and concerns and I can not thank him enough. If you need a lawyer the Organ law firm is second to none, I stand fully behind this review and I can not speak more highly of Mr. Jim Organ and his staff.

Great attorney!
He and his staff listened to concerns and followed through with what he said he could. I always got a call or email back and was kept informed. I am pleased with the outcome.

Called me a liar
Was told my case was not as important as other cases that were going on for the attorney. Granted, my case may not have been as big as a money maker for him, but it certainly had a major negative influence on my life thanks to his complete lack of attentiveness. In the final ruling against me, the judge made comment to the lack of defense that could have been presented to have got me cleared of the charges. At the end of the day, I was left with a lifelong blemish on my record for something I absolutely did not do and this attorney walked away with around $10,000 and a smugness that only added insult to injury. My only hope is that someday in the future, he finds himself in a similar situation where he is wrongfully accused and a person that could have offered him help turns his back like he did on me.
