While many lawyers never see a courtroom, Jim Lynch spends much of his professional time in the courtroom arguing issues for individuals damaged as a result of safety violations, for patients seriously injured by hospitals or physicians who have failed to follow established rules for patient safety, and for individuals, classes who have been damaged by fraudulent or unethical business practices or defective products. Jim and his brother Arthur Lynch are the lead trial attorneys for the firm.
