Attorney James A. Fisher is the managing partner at the Dallas law firm of Fisher & Welch, PC. At the firm, Mr. Fisher proudly serves individuals, business owners and company leaders in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and surrounding North Texas who have a wide range of legal needs, including:

Mr. Fisher began his legal career in 1981 after earning his law degree from University of Colorado Law School and his approval to practice law in the state of Colorado. In 1986, Mr. Fisher relocated to Texas, and the State Bar of Texas admitted him that year. In the more than 30 years that have passed since Mr. Fisher began practicing law in Texas, he has earned the respect of the legal community for his consummate legal abilities.

Over the course of his career, he has handled a number of high-profile cases. However, his most memorable legal moment came in 1998 when he deposed President Bill Clinton. This deposition made him the only attorney to have ever taken a deposition from an acting president. The deposition resulted in President Clinton's disbarment, his impeachment and a fine for nearly $100,000.

Jim Fisher's long record of success has led to a number of honors from the legal community. He has received an AV Preeminent* peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell. In addition, he is an active member of a number of organizations, including the Dallas Bar Association, where he is a member of the Business Litigation and Probate, Trusts and Estates sections.
