About Us

My name is Jim Lockwood. I graduated from law school at the University of Notre Dame and am licensed to practice law in Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. I served five years as an Assistant Attorney general at the Ohio Attorney General's Office. While there, I prosecuted welfare fraud and drafted opinions for the state. I also served as an Assistant Prosecutor for the Barrion County Michigan prosecutor’s office. As a person who has experienced a disability as well as the trials and tribulations that go along with it, I know how crucial fair treatment before the law can be. I represent clients like you to obtain justice on their behalf. Justice is not a commodity, it's a right. You won’t find a more determined advocate. Lawsuits can be intimidating. But, no corporation or person is too large to be above the law. Remember, the bigger the adversary, the sweeter the victory. Contact me today to receive a free case evaluation.
