Life may not be fair,
but judges should be.

Jim graduated from The University of Houston Law School in 1991 after earning a BBA in Marketing from The University of Texas. Having spent 26 years as an attorney in Harris County, Jim successfully handled more than 10,000 cases. Jim’s law firm represents both Plaintiffs and Defendants, and his balanced legal experience enables him to view every case impartially, and not based on some pre-conceived biases. Whether a person is represented by an attorney or representing themselves, Jim believes everyone should start the case without any side having an unfair advantage or head start in the courtroom.
