Jim L. Peacock – Associate
Since 1988-present I have been a litigation attorney emphasizing representation in trial, handling all areas of litigation including fiduciary liability, medical negligence, nursing home neglect, insurance bad faith, commercial torts, personal injury, premises liability, professional liability, probate matters, and civil rights. Trials of complex cases, including a civil jury trial that lasted five weeks involving commercial torts, fraud, usury, and contract breach. I have handled numerous multi-week trials concerning disability discrimination, invasion of privacy, slander, premises liability, and other torts. Trials of one week or less of medical malpractice, automobile collisions, disputes on guarantees in contractual relationships, civil rights, and a variety of cases in differing areas of personal injury and commercial torts. I negotiated significant settlements in litigation of executor misconduct, nursing home neglect, professional malpractice, insurance bad faith, theft of trade secrets, tortious interference with business relations, and numerous other causes of action.
Additionally, I have handled cases in County Courts, Statutory Probate Courts, District Courts, Federal District Court, Courts of Appeals, Court of Criminal Appeals, Texas Supreme Court, and Fifth Circuit. I have also served as an occasional legal analyst or commentator for regional and national television, radio, and print media. I represented a client in one of the largest and most complex Legal Malpractice cases ever in Harris County Probate Courts.
