James L. Pak

Manager

James (“Jim”) Pak focuses his practice on legal matters involving real estate, small and medium sized businesses, contracts, torts, corporations/partnerships/limited liability companies (LLCs), civil litigation and personal injury/wrongful death.

Jim’s legal career began as a law clerk with the law firm of Kain, Snow & Staheli in Spokane, Washington, which focused its practice on tort litigation and business/corporate law.  After leaving Kain, Snow & Staeheli, he relocated to Arizona where he worked as an associate with the law firm of Doherty & Alex handling predominantly cases involving personal injury and small business clients.  After building up his case load to approximately 117 files with minimal support, he left Doherty & Alex to establish his own firm where he could focus more on client relations and expand his practice areas.

In addition to his main areas of practice, he has handled a variety of cases ranging from employment law, probate/wills, consumer bankruptcy, and criminal matters, just to name a few.  As an entrepreneur, he has first hand experience in start-up businesses, as well as the knowledge of the time and effort that is required to own and operate small businesses and make them successful.  He has been instrumental in negotiating business acquisitions and sales personally and for his clients.

In addition to being a practicing lawyer, Jim is also a licensed real estate agent.  He is a principal in Attorneys Realty, L.L.C., which is a real estate brokerage he started with a fellow lawyer in 2005.  He is well versed in residential and commercial sales and leasing transactions, and property management.  Over the years, he has negotiated numerous purchases and leases for commercial and residential properties on behalf of his business and individual clients.  His knowledge and experience in real estate law has been an asset for his clients and those of Attorneys Realty.  Due to his extensive knowledge base, he is able to provide his clients with the most comprehensive representation at an affordable cost.
