Hi, I'm Tim James.  

  I practice law in Yankton, South Dakota.  See our newer website.  

  I have devoted the bulk of my career to fighting for the  underdog.  I guess it runs in the
  When growing up, I  heard my dad refer to those he trusted and respected as "salt
of the earth."  Those folks are my clients.  If you're a silver-spooner, a snob or a bully - I'm
likely not the lawyer for you.

 Just because I come from the "sticks" doesn't mean I  fell off a turnip truck.  I've taken on
the big insurance companies, hospitals and even other lawyers when they failed at their
responsibilities to their patients and clients.  Sure, they've roughed me up some - but I'm still
in the fight.  I'm not impressed with their money, power or political influence.  I work for
you.   The only guarantee I can make is that I will try hard.

   My philosophy is simple:

 If you agree to do a job - do it right.   If you make a mess - clean it up.
