Top 100 Trial Lawyer
Jim Jackson is part of the exclusive Top 100 Trial Lawyers as named by the American Trial Lawyers Association. Membership is obtained through special invitation and is extended only to those attorneys who exemplify superior qualifications, leadership, reputation, influence, stature, and profile as trial lawyers, both civil plaintiff and criminal defense.
Members are chosen by the organization’s Executive Committee based on reputation among peers and the judiciary, jury verdicts, previous years achievements, settlement research, nominations from state and federal judges, leadership and membership in national and state trial lawyer organizations, and rankings and ratings of the attorney by established organizations.
Mid-South Super Lawyer
Jim Jackson of the Jackson Law Firm was again named a Mid-South Super Lawyer for the thirteenth consecutive year by Law & Politics magazine, a distinction awarded to only 5 percent of attorneys in Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee.
Super Lawyers is an annual listing of lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Attorneys are selected through a multi-step selection process that takes approximately nine months to complete. This process begins with a survey to all lawyers in the state who have been in practice for at least five years. In addition to the survey, Law & Politics researches credentials of nominees, assembles a blue-ribbon review panel of leading attorneys from each of the 60 practice areas included in the evaluation, directly contacts lawyers and law firm representatives, verifies data, and conducts a good-standing review of candidates. Super Lawyers is published annually in December in Memphis magazine and in Mid-South Super Lawyers magazine as well as several other publications, including The New York Times.
“Jim is just like a big snapping turtle. He won’t stop working for you until the thunder claps after your check hits his desk. Very pleased with his service. My wife and I had just about given up but he said no. Insurance companies are horrible but he knows how to handle them. Thanks Jim for working hard for me.”
