Jim Jackson of the Jackson Law Firm Listed Among Industry’s 2009 Influential Leaders
Little Rock, Ark. (Nov. 16, 2009) – Jim Jackson of the Jackson Law Firm was recently named a Mid-South Super Lawyer for the fourth consecutive year by Law & Politics magazine, a distinction awarded to only 5 percent of attorneys in Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee.
Jackson, a Top 100 Trial Lawyer by the American Trial Lawyers Association of Washington, D.C., is also a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a prestigious group of elite trial lawyers who have won million- or multi-million dollar results for their clients. Jackson settled his first million-dollar case in 1995, just two years out of law school. He currently serves on the Arkansas Supreme Court Committee on the Unauthorized Practice of Law.
“I am honored by this recognition from my peers,” Jackson said. “I value my profession and enjoy working with attorneys who share my passion for justice. There are many deserving lawyers in our state. To again be selected as a Super Lawyer by my fellow members of the bar is truly an honor for me.”
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. Arkansas 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.
Jackson represents clients from across Arkansas and the country. However, as a native of Hempstead and Howard County, many of his clients live in southwest Arkansas. Jackson has also successfully handled cases in Bowie County, Texas.
He was raised in Columbus, Ark., a small town outside Hope. He attended school in nearby Saratoga and graduated from Hope High School. Jim and his wife, Lisa Ferrell, live in Little Rock with their three young children: Adam, 11, Luke, 7, and Olivia, 5.
