Personal Injury & Sex Abuse Trial Lawyer
"Gerry gave me the tools and gifts I needed to learn to love myself. That discovery process was at times incredibly painful yet rewarding in so many human ways. I wouldn’t be who I am now – a better father, family man and trial lawyer, if it weren’t for the gifts I received at the Ranch. It truly did all begin with me. I understand that now and am forever grateful."
Jim has tried over 80 cases to jury verdict. Since 2002 he has focused on catastrophic injury and child sex abuse cases which have resulted in many multi-million-dollar verdicts and a record setting verdict against a child rehabilitation sex abuse case that is still the largest in the State of California. Prior to 2002, in addition to his personal injury case load he also tried many federal and state criminal cases including the importation of 12 tons of cocaine, murder, wire fraud, drug sales and manufacturing that resulted in unparalleled success for his clients.
The Consumer Attorney of San Diego have honored Jim with its San Diego Trial Lawyer of the Year Award in addition to four Outstanding Trial Lawyer Awards in recognition of his outstanding trial skills and verdicts. Jim lectures throughout the US and willingly assists other attorneys in all aspects of trial preparation and trial work.
Jim is most proud of his kids and is generally quite well tempered and is a good person. His goal is to pass on the gifts he received from Gerry and everyone at the Ranch.
