The managing partner at The Law Offices of Lucas|Magazine, James L. Magazine focuses his practice primarily on personal injury and wrongful death litigation.

He has been certified as a specialist in civil trial law by both The Florida Bar and the National Board of Trial Advocacy.

Mr. Magazine's personal injury clients are people who have been harmed due to the negligence of other parties. The types of cases that he has handled have arisen out of incidents involving truck and other motor vehicle accidents, defective products, nursing home abuse, and premises liability. Mr. Magazine has been able to obtain substantial compensation for his clients through both jury awards and negotiated settlements, and this has resulted in him being a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, both of which are invitation-only organizations. Other recognition that he has received has included an AV Preeminent* peer-review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and a 10.0 "Superb" peer-review rating through Avvo, and he has been named to The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100.

In addition to his personal injury practice, Mr. Magazine also represents policyholders whose claims have been denied in bad faith by their insurance companies. A 1986 recipient of a Bachelor of Arts in political science from what was then known as Baldwin Wallace College, he obtained his legal education at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 1989.
