Biography

Jim dedicates his practice to helping people who have been hurt on the job or through the fault of others and who have no place left to turn. After college and while working full time in the field of Risk Management, he graduated Cum Laude from Widener University School of Law in 2004. The unique experience of having assisted with the management of Workers' Compensation claims for a large Philadelphia employer during these years has provided Jim with a unique understanding of the complexities of workers' compensation cases not common in other lawyers.

After law school, Jim spent several years working for a regional and a large national law firm defending employers and insurance companies in workers' compensation cases. In 2008 he founded Veith Law Firm. In addition to his experience allowing him to understand how employers and insurance companies approach workers' compensation cases, Jim also brings large firm experience to the small firm setting allowing for more personalized service on each case.

With over 15 years of workers' compensation experience, Jim has also written and lectured on a variety of workers' compensation topics and offers a wide body of knowledge from which his clients may draw. Jim lives in Montgomery County with his wife Julie and their five children.
