Jim McNamara, RIP

I was saddened to read today that my former colleague Jim McNamara, a partner at Coughlin Stoia Geller Rudman & Robbins, passed away at the untimely age of 36, from cystic fibrosis.

I worked on several cases with him in my first years of legal practice and have particularly fond memories of a business trip we took together to New York City to collect documents and prepare for a deposition. Coughlin Stoia has a page describing some of Jim’s achievements, including recovering $55 million for African Americans victims of overcharging by insurance companies, and in a case I worked with him on, helping to end the shady insurance industry practice of undisclosed “contingent commission” kickbacks.
