As a lawyer and 20-year veteran of the software industry, Jim is an expert across all areas of legal technology. After receiving his J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School, he practiced law at Choate, Hall & Stewart in Boston, specializing in tax law. When the firm deposited a personal computer on his desk in the late 1980s, he soon realized he was more intrigued with its operation than with tax-free reorganization rules, leading to a new career path. After teaching himself to program this strange new beast, he joined the federal tax development team at Legal Knowledge Systems, the publishers of TaxCut®, an innovative personal tax return preparation program now owned by Block Financial. After a few years at TaxCut, he, too, joined Neil Aresty’s Legal Computer Solutions working on the development of the early versions of Lextranet®, a pioneering online e-discovery review platform.
In 2000, he took a brief hiatus from Legal Computer Solutions to join Wine Technologies, Inc., as Vice-President of Web Development and was the lead developer of www.erobertparker.com, the online version of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, the world's leading and most influential wine review publication. Once that venture was well established, he returned to Legal Computer Solutions to manage several development teams working on Lextranet and its backend operational software. When Lextranet was acquired by the Merrill Corporation in 2007, he followed it and served as the technical product manager for the e-discovery platform.
Delighted once again to be back with his colleagues at ARV Partners, he is committed to helping clients benefit from law-related technologies and cope with managing difficult e-discovery projects in a cost- and time-effective way.
