Jim Busby

One of Tucson’s Premier Personal Injury Law Firms
Jim Busby began practicing law in Tucson in 1972. Jim was born and raised in Tucson and attended his first three years of high school in Tucson. He attended his senior year of high school in Casa Grande, Arizona, and then returned to Tucson to complete his undergraduate and law school studies. He graduated from the University of Arizona College of Law in May, 1972 and was admitted to the State Bar of Arizona in September of 1972. He was certified by the Arizona Board of Legal Specialization/State Bar of Arizona as a specialist in injury and wrongful death litigation in 1993.

During his first several years practicing law Jim was involved in a general practice including general litigation, family law, criminal law, business/corporate law, and personal injury and wrongful death litigation. In approximately 1985 Jim began to devote his practice exclusively to injury and wrongful death litigation. As an injury and wrongful death specialist all of Jim’s professional efforts are directed towards helping individuals and families who have been injured or have otherwise suffered due to someone else’s  wrongful actions.

Jim’s A.V. rating by Martindale-Hubbell is the highest rating available for legal ability and ethical standards.

Married since 1967, Jim and his wife, Marilyn, have four children and twelve grandchildren.

Jim is a member of the State Bar of Arizona, the Pima County Bar Association, and he is a sustaining member and has been on the board of directors of the Arizona Association for Justice, also known as the Arizona Trial Lawyers Association.
