Jim Reeves is a personal injury attorney who is recognized as one of Mississippi’s leading advocates for injured people. Though known for his high dollar cases (Jim has been counsel in more than 100 separate cases with a recovery of $1,000,000 or more), he takes cases across a wide area of personal injury concerns including tractor-trailer accidents, car wrecks, nursing home injury and neglect, slip and fall and Jones Act violations.
Jim is also known for his class action work including 1600 BP Oil cases and roughly 400 Chinese Dry Wall cases. His reputation has earned appointments from federal judges across the country to handle complex national and international litigation.
Over the years, he has gained a reputation as a tough courtroom fighter. Not afraid of taking on large corporations and their team of attorneys, he has fought against such companies as Ford Motor Company, Bridgestone/Firestone, and Lloyds of London Insurance Companies. He especially enjoys handling cases for working families, veterans and children.
Jim graduated cum laude from Tulane University Law School in 1992. He obtained his undergraduate degree with honors from the University of South Alabama in 1989.
Jim was elected to the Board of Governors of the Mississippi Association for Justice in 2002 and serves in the Leaders Forum. He is also a member in the Harrison County, Alabama and Mississippi Bar Associations.
Nicknamed “The Bulldog,” Jim has actually run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.
