Jim was a leader before becoming an attorney. Life has prepared Jim well to represent people as a Florida personal injury lawyer. Jim was born in Wasilla, Alaska to a rugged frontier farming family. Wanting a sunnier home, the Vickaryous family moved to Naples, Florida, where Jim spent his formative years. He played high school football and was elected school president by his fellow students at Barron Collier High School. Recognizing a budding fighter, the U.S. Army awarded Jim a four-year academic scholarship to attend the University of Miami, where he obtained a bachelors degree in history. Jim lived in the Tampa Bay area while earning his law degree from Stetson University College of Law. He honed his ability to quantify clients’ losses by earning a Masters in Business dministration
from Stetson University.Jim’s legal experience has been sharpened by leading troops in hostile territory. Jim led a military police unit to Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1997. Jim’s platoon aggressively patrolled the “Zone Of Separation,” using both friendly coaxing and forceful persuasion to keep the Tuzla Valley of Bosnia
free of warfare. Recognizing a job well done, Jim was awarded the NATO Medal For Service in Former Yugoslavia. Jim’s proudest accomplishment from his Bosnia-Herzegovina service was bringing his troops home safe and sound to their families here in Florida.

Selection follows a rigorous, multistage selection process: The National Association of Distinguished Counsel is an organization dedicated to promoting the highest standards of legal excellence. The mission of the NADC is to objectively recognize the attorneys who elevate the standards of the Bar and provide a benchmark for other lawyers to emulate. Members are vetted by a research team, a blue ribbon panel of attorneys, and a judicial review board.

Candidates must be nominated and then are vetted by association researchers based on public profiles, client reviews and courts records, firm profile and reputation, years of practice, education and training, trial experience, case outcomes, peer endorsements, professional awards and memberships,
leadership in legal organizations and community involvement.

If judged to be worthy based on these criteria, nominees are reviewed again by a panel of attorneys and then by a judicial review board that includes a group of former judges. As a successful candidate, Vickaryous is now recognized nationally as a member of “The Nation’s Top One Percent.”

The recipients of this prestigious award have demonstrated the highest ideals of the legal profession.
