James Berrigan is a dedicated legal professional with a track record of achieving remarkable results for his clients. James graduated from Fordham University with a double major in History and Spanish Studies, then went on to earn his law degree from the University of Georgia.

One of his most notable achievements occurred when faced with a challenging insurance company that had presented an inadequate offer. Undeterred, James took the initiative to address his client’s needs, who did not speak English with travel restrictions, making litigation an impossible option. Through strategic negotiation and persuasive communication, he convinced the adjuster to substantially increase the offer, ultimately securing a settlement that truly changed his client’s life. The genuine embrace of gratitude from the client upon receiving the check remains a touching testament to James’s dedication and skill.

A proud member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association (GTLA), James is deeply committed to advocating for his clients’ best interests. His upbringing in Savannah within a loving and supportive family, where he is the eldest child, instilled values of integrity and empathy that have become the foundation of his legal practice. Inspired by his father, who is also a respected personal injury lawyer, James understands the importance of upholding ethical standards while persistently pursuing justice.

Beyond his legal pursuits, James finds joy in the strategic game of chess, the outdoorsy camaraderie of disc golf, and the storytelling charm of movies. His various interests reflect a well-rounded personality molded by a desire for excellence and personal growth.

James believes in conquering opportunities and making the most of life’s blessings, a philosophy lesson he learned: “Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.” His ultimate aspiration remains delivering outstanding outcomes for his clients and to leave a positive impact on their lives. Born into a wonderful family, he considers it the greatest stroke of luck and continues to strive for personal achievements, including sinking a hole-in-one while playing disc golf.
