Most recently Jim was inducted into the International Society of Barristers, an honor society of outstanding trial lawyers chosen by their peers. Jim was again selected as a 2016 Super Lawyers honoree. He also received 2011 "Attorney of the Year" recognition by Minnesota Lawyer - an award reserved for a select group of attorneys based on leadership in the profession, involvement in major cases or other newsworthy events, excellence in corporate or transactional services and public service.
