Originally from New York State, Jimmy began his legal career as a police officer for the City of Dallas in 1988. Not long after becoming a police officer, he decided to attend law school. In 1991, Jimmy attended Southern Methodist University (SMU) School of Law, while continuing to work for the police department. He graduated law school in 1994, became a member of the State Bar in 1995, and continued working as a police officer until 1997.
That same year, Jimmy began his career as an Assistant District Attorney in Denton County, Texas. He was one of the office’s most successful trial attorneys, only losing four cases in his 11+ years as a prosecutor. In those 11 years, he tried every type of case, from a traffic ticket to murder. Jimmy also maintained his Texas Peace Officer’s License, continuing his career as a law enforcement officer in Texas.
