Jim Terry has devoted his entire career to helping those who needed it most. He believes that the best results are achieved through a personal relationship with his clients, and Jim is committed to personally handling any legal issues that arise. Jim understands, however, that not every case deals only with legal matters and that his clients also face real life issues which can affect their case. Jim knows that only through personalized representation can both the legal and real life issues be addressed and positive results obtained.
Jim has achieved positive results in hundreds of cases both in and outside of the court room since his legal career began in 1998. After graduating from St. Mary’s School of Law in San Antonio, Jim joined the Texas Attorney General’s office – fighting for the rights of victims of violent crimes. While there, Jim represented the State of Texas in every federal district court in the state. He also handled numerous appeals before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit achieving several published decisions.
Since 2003, Jim has been in private practice helping those who have suffered injuries through another’s negligence, those treated unfairly by their own insurance company, and those who were the victims of medical malpractice.
Outside the office, Jim and his wife, Coral, spend most of their time on their ranch taking care of Coral’s longhorn cattle. When the longhorns aren’t getting into trouble, Jim tries to get in a round of golf from time to time.
