Jim holds over 20 years’ experience solving business and legal issues. Having served as in-house counsel for Computer Sciences Corporation and Sun Microsystems, and as general counsel/vice-president of operations for etalk Corporation, Jim knows that business needs to get done. He understands the balance business owners strike between the bottom line and the risks “out there.” Jim carries this in-house mindset with him in his role as outside counsel, while he handles complex business issues for his clients.
Jim’s clients include commercial and retail banks and other lenders, technology and broadcasting companies, manufacturers, real estate developers, and energy sector players. He provides transactional support to the financial services industry, including loan documentation in a variety of contexts—commercial real estate, C&I, ABL, SBA, construction, project finance, and syndicated or participated loans, among others. Jim focuses on protecting his clients’ needs and advising them on sound business and legal practices.
Before entering private practice, Jim clerked for Justice Carolyn Wright in the Fifth District Court of Appeals of Texas.
Jim also serves as a mediator for cases in North Texas.
Jim serves on the board of trustees for Archgate Montessori Academy in Plano, Texas, and is President of the Rotary Club of Frisco (a Rotary International club). He is a guest lecturer at SMU’s Cox School of Business, Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship and serves on the faculty of the Sigma Chi International Krach Transformational Leadership Workshop. In his spare time, Jim coaches his son’s soccer team, is the bane of the undead in “Plants vs. Zombies,” and roots for his beloved Cowboys, Mavericks, Rangers, F.C. Dallas, and Manchester United. While he was in-house counsel, Jim was inducted into Marquis’ Who’s Who in America and Kipling’s Who’s Who in Leading Business Professionals.
