About Jim

Outside of the office, Jim spends most of his time with his wife and son.  Trying to be active and outdoors as much as possible, they enjoy playing golf, traveling, and attending Longhorn sports events.  When it’s not football season, Jim and his family spend most weekends at their ranch east of Austin, fishing and tending to their small herd of Longhorn cattle.

Professional Experience

Jim has achieved positive results in hundreds of cases both in and out of the courtroom since his legal career began in 1998. After graduating from St. Mary’s School of Law in San Antonio, Jim joined the Texas Attorney General’s office – fighting for the rights of victims of violent crimes. While there, Jim represented the State of Texas in every federal district court in the state. He also handled numerous appeals before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit achieving several published decisions.

Since 2003, Jim has been in private practice helping those who have suffered injuries through another’s negligence, those treated unfairly by their own insurance company, and those who were the victims of medical malpractice.

Jim is licensed to practice law in Texas and Florida and assists clients in both states with their legal matters.
