After graduating from law school Jim opened his own practice dedicated to personal injury and criminal defense. He found that he had a passion and talent for trial advocacy. Jim’s very first trial was against Pettis County, Missouri for the wrongful death of a woman killed on a dangerous county road. He represented the family of a mother killed when her car slid off of a county bridge with no guardrails. Her car overturned in the creek below and she drowned. Several attorneys had passed on the case because the victim had been drinking. Jim won a $750,000 verdict for her family.
