Jim attained specialist accreditation in commercial litigation in 2006, before joining HB Legal Business & Property Lawyers in Port Macquarie back in 2007. In recent years he has increasingly focused on commercial transaction and advice work, maintaining a keen awareness of the need to ensure clients are appropriately protected in the event of difficulties or disputes.

He also has a particular interest in building and construction matters. Jim’s personal interests include his young family, playing the piano, reading good books and being involved in a local church.
