After spending a number of years representing insurance companies in personal injury matters Jim realized that trying to keep people who had been injured and really needed the money from getting paid by insurance companies just did not fit his personal moral code. He came back to the plaintiff’s side by joining his father’s solo personal injury firm and has since taken over the firm after his father retired.
Jim is a very experienced trial lawyer having conducted jury trials in multiple states both on behalf of injured people and on behalf of defending insurance companies.
Jim is one of Minnesota’s most experienced no-fault arbitration attorneys having handled several thousand hearings both on behalf of injured people and on behalf of insurance companies. He has also been on the panel of no-fault arbitrators for the American Arbitration Association since 1990 and has acted as the arbitrator on hundreds of matters since then.
Jim is an avid golfer and sports fan. He has been a high school hockey referee for over 30 years.
