The American Museum of Tort Law takes great pleasure in announcing that nationally known trial lawyer James E. Fitzgerald has become a Founder.

Jim Fitzgerald started his law practice in 1975 and founded The Fitzgerald Law Firm in 1982 with the cornerstone belief of finding truth and justice. Jim represents people in complex damages cases involving unsafe products, unsafe equipment, oil field matters, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries resulting in quadriplegia and paraplegia, burns and birth injuries. Jim has developed a national reputation for delivering extraordinary results.

Jim is a graduate of the University of Wyoming, served in the military in Vietnam and then earned his law degree from the University of Colorado.

His trial record includes numerous multimillion dollar jury awards and several records for jury verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients. Jim has been trial counsel in nearly half of the million-dollar verdicts in the history of Wyoming.

He is a member of the American College of Trial Lawyers, the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, the American Board of Trial Advocates, and the Inner Circle of Advocates, an organization limited to 100 of the top plaintiffs lawyers in the country.

In 1998, Jim and his family established the Fitzgerald Foundation for Children to help improve public safety for young people.

We are greatly honored that Attorney James E. Fitzgerald has joined so many other superlative lawyers as a Founder of the American Museum of Tort Law.

The American Museum of Tort Law, founded by Ralph Nader, is dedicated to public education about the benefits of tort law as a safeguard of people’s health, safety and welfare; and to the importance of preserving and expanding the right of trial by jury.
