Jim Weems is a shareholder in the Jackson office of Daniel Coker Horton & Bell.  He focuses his practice in the areas of General Litigation and Hospitality.  When asked about his approach to a new matter, Jim says, “When entrusted with a new case by a client, I treat it as if I am a shepherd.  That case may be one of many on my list, but to the client, it is the most important thing in the world.  And I will treat it that way, from the beginning until I have taken it all the way through to the end.”
