Railroad Accident Attorney Jamie Holland

James Holland, II, known as Jamie to clients and friends, initially was headed for a far different line of work - but one that perhaps has helped make him a standout attorney. After all, few professions rely on the power of persuasion as much as the practice of law and the craft of acting.

Before attending the University of Alabama School of Law, Holland headed to Hollywood to pursue a career as a professional actor, landing roles on soap operas Santa Barbara and The Young and the Restless. But it was the allure of the legal profession that ultimately drew him far from the LA lights. He ultimately traded in his union cards with the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists for a license to practice law and the chance to use his persuasive skills in the court room instead.

Experienced Trial Injury Attorney

Since earning his law degree, Holland has racked up two decades of trial experience, specializing in railroad, trucking and significant injury cases. He's a frequent lecturer on trial advocacy and has served on the Board of Governors for Florida Justice Association and the American Association for Justice, where he is a former chair of the railroad law section. He also regularly mentors younger lawyers on successful courtroom techniques and skills, coaches trial advocates and teaches CLE (Continuing Legal Education) courses, and helped to develop the format for the Florida Justice Association's Al J. Cone Trial Advocacy College.

Holland's exemplary work and his dedication to ensuring justice for his clients has landed him multiple accolades and recognitions including the Mickey Smiley award from the Florida Justice Association Young Lawyers Board and designation as a Super Lawyer in both Florida and Alabama.
