Jim Shaw is a third generation Trial Lawyer and collector of stories.  His interest in fighting for the accused and the injured go back as far as he can remember. Jim's practice is primarily devoted to Major Felony Defense.

Before returning to the "family business", Jim worked as a high school football coach, a marine biology researcher, and a commercial real estate broker.  In addition to practicing law, Jim can be found outdoors with his adventurous wife and son.  He follows Texas Rangers Baseball,  Oklahoma City Thunder Basketball, and professional cycling.
