“WISDOM IS GREATER THAN KNOWLEDGE, FOR WISDOM
INCLUDES KNOWLEDGE AND THE DUE USE OF IT.”
- Joseph Sevelli Capponi

Founded by Managing Partner, James Selmer in 1983, JSL offers more than 29 years’ experience handling a wide variety of litigation and transactional matters for both private and public sector clients. As skilled specialists in civil and appellate litigation, our talented legal team excels in advising clients in business and commercial law, insurance law, general liability and negligence claims, labor and employment law, dispute resolution, contracts, construction law, workers compensation, corporate law and business formation, partnership agreements, and collection matters, including enforcement of judgments.

It is our unique experience, along with the strong knowledge gained from that experience that sets us apart from other firms.

Experience

The senior attorneys at J. Selmer Law have more than 100 years’ legal experience handling litigation at every stage of the legal process, from pretrial through the appellate level. Our work representing clients in a variety of complex matters has given us a wealth of insight as to how to best approach each legal problem.

In litigation matters, we apply our experience to each phase of the process, from initial case analysis, to pretrial work, to trial and appeals. Having litigated a variety of contract, tort, and statutory-based claims, and having faced many different attorneys in district courts, as well as administrative forums, we know that it is the quality of our experience that counts most when tackling today’s legal problems.

“MOTHERWIT IS THE COMMON SENSE TO
RESOLVE THE SIMPLE OR COMPLEX.”
- James Curtis Selmer

Experience counts just as much in managing business transactions for our clients. Unlike other lawyers, we are focused and extremely proficient in handling our clients’ business and legal needs. We do not see a clear-cut distinction between transactional matters and litigation work. Whether we are negotiating a deal or drafting a contract, we know that to protect our clients’ interests, we must keep a sharp eye on all possible scenarios, including those that could lead to litigation. By knowing how and why lawsuits start, we structure deals so as to prevent them from occurring altogether. We place our clients in the best possible position in the event that litigation later becomes necessary. This is true whether we are negotiating a non-compete agreement, or planning the governance structure of a corporation. In each situation we know that sound, careful lawyering means keeping a close eye out for potential pitfalls.

Enthusiasm

At JSL, we approach every client’s interests with tremendous dedication and hard work. J. Selmer Law handles the intense pressures of litigation with the highest degree of energy, skill and efficiency.
