James P. Fitzgerald

James is the managing partner of The Fitzgerald Law Firm, P.C.  He has over 20 years of experience working as a paralegal and lawyer.  As a high school student, he designed computer programs to assist Fitzgerald Lawyers in the litigation and trial preparation of cases.

James obtained his undergraduate degree from Villanova University in electrical engineering.  He brings these technical skills to the analysis and presentation of cases, especially those involving complex medicine.

He attended Pace Law School and was admitted to practice in 2007.  With The Fitzgerald Law Firm, P.C., James continues the legacy of The Fitzgerald Lawyers.

Although James has vast experience in all types of personal injury, medical malpractice, and brain trauma cases, he has taken a special interest in pioneering cases for parents who have lost a newborn or suffered a stillbirth.  Most recently, he took a $5-Million jury verdict for short bowel syndrome caused by necrotizing enterocolitis and a $400,000 jury verdict for a stillbirth.
