Jim Weiss focuses his practice on commercial and business litigation at the trial and appellate levels. Representing corporate and individual clients in federal, state and arbitration proceedings, Jim has demonstrated a strong aptitude for developing and analyzing complex legal arguments.

After law school, Jim clerked two years for Judge Sam Sparks on the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, Austin Division, on one of the busiest civil dockets in the country. While clerking for Judge Sparks, Jim learned the ins and outs of federal motion practice and procedure while observing firsthand what influences and persuades both judges and juries.
