Orange County area personal injury attorney James (Jim) Ballidis knows that personal injuries bring challenges that go beyond the physical injuries and include emotional and financial struggles. His father was killed when he was an infant as the result of a negligent auto driver and his stepfather was killed by a gunman at his place of business. Having lost two family members because of the negligent or reckless actions of others, Jim knows what he is talking about when he describes the pain, confusion, and struggle that can surround personal injuries. However, more importantly, JimÍs own life is a testament to overcoming what someone else has done to you and achieving your best life possible. As a personal injury attorney, his goal is to help you receive the financial recovery that you need to transform yourself from personal injury victim to successful survivor.
A graduate of California State University, Long Beach, and an honors graduate of Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, Jim has been practicing law since 1985. His professional memberships include the Orange County Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the State Bar of California, the Consumer Attorneys Association of California, the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association, and the Association of Trial Lawyers of America. Jim began work as an attorney in an insurance defense firm, where he learned the tactics used by defense attorneys to defeat personal injury claims and minimize personal injury settlements. He also met many plaintiffsÍ attorneys and became disillusioned with their approach to personal injury law. He began to feel like no one was worried about taking care of those who had been injured. He was asked by Robert Allen to join his firm, and discovered a mentor who shared the same passion for victims that Jim shares. Since becoming a plaintiffÍs attorney, Jim has been designated 2011 Attorney of the Year by the American Academy of Ethical Attorneys, has received a 10.0 ranking on AVVO, has an AV Preeminent ranking by Martindale-Hubbell, has been nominated to Superlawyers, and was featured in 88-lawyers.
