From Super Lawyers News — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
James M. Jimenez Named to Super Lawyers
MINNEAPOLIS — February 2010: James M. Jimenez, Los Angeles, California, business and real estate attorney, has been named by Southern California Super Lawyers magazine as one of the top attorneys in California. Each year, no more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state receive this honor.
Super Lawyers recognizes outstanding attorneys in more than 70 areas of practice using a rigorous, multiphase selection process that includes peer nominations, evaluation of attorneys based on 12 separate indicators of professional achievement and peer recognition, peer evaluation by other lawyers within one's practice area, and a final discipline check to verify that the attorney meets the highest ethical standards. "A crucial phase in our selection process is the evaluation of each candidate's background, experience, credentials and achievement as a lawyer," says Bill White, publisher of Super Lawyers magazine. "One of the factors we look at is peer recognition from other lawyers — in particular, lawyers from outside the candidate’s firm. Our research editors were impressed by the number and variety of lawyers who nominated Mr. Jimenez for inclusion in Super Lawyers."
James M. Jimenez is the founder and president of Pacific Business Law, APC. He is an outstanding trial lawyer and focuses his efforts on "bet-the-company" business and real estate litigation matters with outstanding success in courts across California.

He graduated from the University of Rochester with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1975. Jim also received a MBA-Finance degree from the University of Rochester Simon School of Business in 1976.
