    Jim 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.

    *AV-Preeminent and BV-Distinguished are certification marks of Reed Elsevier Properties Inc., used in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the judiciary.
