Jim was born and raised in a rough part of New Jersey and is the oldest of six children. Jim lost his father as young boy and had a pretty rough and tumble upbringing. As a small skinny kid in a typical rough city neighborhood, Jim was often the target of bullies and things got pretty tough for him at times. As the target of bullies through his earlier life, Jim understands what it means to get unfairly pushed around. To this day Jim can’t stand bullies and has a real soft spot for the underdog.
Jim graduated from the top-ranked Rutgers Law School. During that time Jim interned for a well-respected Federal District Court Judge, worked for the New Jersey Attorney General’s Organized Crime and Racketeering Bureau, and worked for a top firm that represented cities. After graduating from law school Jim moved to California where he began working with a small Palm Desert law firm. By the early age of 27 Jim opened his own law practice representing clients accused of serious crimes. In time, Jim began to represent injured people, and that is where he found his passion.
Today Jim exclusively represents people who have been injured through no fault of their own or who are accused of minor criminal conduct, like DUI’s and domestic violence. He has taken his passion for helping the underdog and now stands up against huge insurance companies and over-reaching government.
