Press Release

Munsch Hardt Attorney Recognized as Top Defense Lawyer 


We are proud to announce that the Dallas Business Journal has named James D. Jordan one of the top 15 business defense attorneys in Dallas/Fort Worth. The same publication has previously named Jim as one of the six most influential leaders in the Dallas/Fort Worth legal community. Jim has been with Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr, P.C. for 22 years and served as the firm’s Chairman and CEO from 1998 through 2005.

Jim's recent successes include a defense verdict in a four-week jury trial in North Carolina in which he defended a world-famous golf resort (and past host of the US Open) and the successful defense of a national manufacturer and marketer of cleaning and sanitizing products in one of the first accounting whistle blower trials under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (a case discussed in the Wall Street Journal editorial page). Please join us in congratulating Jim on this well-deserved recognition.
