He was born and raised in Metro Detroit, graduating with honors from Gabriel Richard Catholic High School in Riverview in 1994.

In 1998, he graduated from Wayne State University with a Bachelor of Science degree cum laude and was inducted as a lifetime member of Phi Beta Kappa, Gamma Chapter of Michigan.

    Jim attended Wayne State University Law School at night while working full time as a database and computer support professional.

While there, he specialized in representing Chapter 7 Trustees, debtors and creditors in all phases of bankruptcy practice, including appeals. Now at Makower Abbate Guerra Wegner Vollmer PLLC, Jim’s practice is centered on condominium law, collection matters, restriction enforcement, bankruptcy, litigation and contract drafting and review.
