James J. Harrington IV
In 2001, James was hired by Geoffrey Fieger as a law clerk while in his second year of law school. He worked full-time while attending the University of Detroit Mercy Law School at night. He was a member of the National Moot Court Team where he argued First Amendment issues at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn.
After passing the Bar, James was immediately hired to join Fieger Law’s team of trial lawyers. Harrington has navigated complicated cases in federal court and state courts throughout Michigan. He has also represented clients in state and federal courts in Ohio, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, Louisiana, Washington, D.C., Kansas and Pennsylvania, on a pro hac vice status.
James earned his undergraduate degree at Adrian College where he played football for four years and was a team captain during his senior season. He earned a dual major from Adrian in Criminal Justice and Spanish.
Described as down-to-earth by his colleagues, James enjoys hunting and fishing and says “there is nothing better than being a dad.”
