Jim began his career as a defense lawyer representing insurance companies who put profits over people as a part of their business plan. He recently left his defense practice to pursue his true passion, as a plaintiff's trial lawyer. For Jim there just came a point in his life when he became disheartened by watching the insurance industry take advantage of hard working people just in the name of saving a few dollars.
Jim has a wealth of civil litigation experience. Most importantly, he knows the work it takes to maximize the value of a case and if the insurance company doesn't want to settle the case fairly, he has the experience necessary to try the case to get the result that the client deserves.
Jim, along with his amazing wife Abbey, have two very active boys and live in the western suburbs of Chicago. With Jim, you will always have a strong advocate on your side.
