ATTORNEY JAMES J. HARRINGTON IV

DEVOTED TO HARD WORK & FIGHTING FOR HIS CLIENT

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.

He is responsible for numerous multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements, including verdicts of $17.5 million and $15.5 million in vehicle accident cases; $9.5 million in a general negligence case in 2016; and $3.5 million in 2018 in a federal civil rights case. He has also won several awards, including annual Super Lawyers recognition.

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.
