Jim is a seasoned appellate lawyer who has handled dozens of appeals and argued three times before the Illinois Appellate Court. He also has experience representing clients in class actions and government investigations.
A native Chicagoan who grew up in a family full of lawyers, Jim dreamed of being a fighter pilot or a writer for National Geographic but wisely decided to attend law school instead. He played rugby in college but now enjoys beach volleyball during Chicago’s brief summer months, and will go out of his way for a cheeseburger and chocolate shake at Top Notch Beefburgers.
