Jim Beasley Jr. is the managing member of The Beasley Firm, assuming that role after his mentor and father, Jim Beasley, Sr., passed away in 2004. Since that time, Jim has shaped the Firm to best meet the changing requirements and increasing demands that the new millennium has placed on law firms. As of 2016, the Firm is as strong, tight and focused as it has ever been, determined to litigate the toughest civil lawsuits. Under Jim’s direction, The Beasley Firm continues to be the go-to destination for all aggrieved people, including lawyers, judges, and even physicians, pursuing professional malpractice, air crash litigation, libel, and business torts.

Jim’s results exceed $300 million in awards for his clients, in a variety of complex matters. Thus far in his career, Jim has been voted as one of the Best Lawyers in America, a top 100 Pennsylvania Super Lawyer since 2006, and one of the top 75 plaintiffs’ attorneys in the United States. He carries a 10 rating with Avvo and is one of the diminishing numbers of attorneys that would rather be on trial than pushing paper. As noted below, Jim has a particular expertise in aviation litigation as well as medical malpractice claims.

After graduating from Temple University with a major in the Honors molecular biology program, and a minor in history, Jim went to the University of Pennsylvania to study medicine, and in particular molecular genetics. However, growing up as the son of Jim Beasley, Sr. caused him to refocus his career, and to that end, he received his law degree from the University of Pennsylvania, in addition to the medical degree he received from PENN. Jim has a third graduate degree — a Masters in Trial Advocacy — graduating first in his class, with Honors, from the Temple University Beasley School of Law. He is a Fellow of the American College of Legal Medicine and frequently lectures on complex civil litigation.

Jim makes sure that the Firm continues to contribute to the community. To that end, Jim frequently has a number of pro bono clients, and in 2009 was an award winner for the Philadelphia Volunteer for the Indigent Program. The Firm also sponsors the Temple University Beasley School of Law’s LEAP (Law, Education, and Planning) program, which has high school students participate in “mock trial” programs across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This program has helped focus many local high school students to attend college and gives many their first introduction into the Law.

The Beasley Firm

Established in 1958, The Beasley Firm has represented countless injury victims and have been awarded more than $2 billion in compensation – something that no other Pennsylvania firm can match. Our Philadelphia personal injury and trial lawyers are passionate about advocating for the catastrophically injured; those who have lost loved ones, family members, or those tragically hurt in a serious accident.

Founded nearly 60 years ago by James Beasley Sr., The Beasley Firm was one of the first plaintiff’s firms in all of Philadelphia. Within just a few years, James Beasley Sr. secured the first million dollar verdict in Pennsylvania and proceeded on to win more $1+ million verdicts than any other lawyer in the U.S. While Jim Beasley Sr. passed away in 2004 at the age of 78, The Beasley Firm continues to honor his legacy and provide legal representation and counsel that is a step above the rest.

The Beasley Firm is all about trial work. In the last several decades, our firm has recovered consistently excellent results for our clients in everything from birth injury claims to wrongful death cases. We help ensure that those who have been injured due to the negligent or reckless actions of others are given the funds they need to enjoy financial security for the rest of their lives. We protect reputations, we change laws, we set precedents-all so that justice can be served and our clients can obtain the fairest outcome possible.

The Beasley Firm works with a team of doctors, nurses, and lawyers who can analyze records, assist in early investigations, and help us craft the strongest possible cases for our clients. We are known for our efficiency, speed, and thoroughness, and have a reputation for developing solid cases, always staying way ahead of the defendant.
