Jim Parkman is a lawyer with Boles, Holmes, Parkman & White with offices in Birmingham and Dothan, Alabama. Jim, as I learned, handles complex and high profile white collar criminal defense cases nationwide. For example, Jim was the lead counsel representing Richard Scrushy of Birmingham’s Healthsouth in the mid-2000s. With Jim as his counsel, Mr. Scrushy was acquitted of all 36 charges before a jury in federal court. You can read about that trial here and also, if you have some down time to watch Netflix, check out the documentary “Trial by Media, King Richard episode” in which Jim plays a prominent role. When you hear Jim, you will quickly realize that he can be very impressive and captivating to jurors who are selected to sit on his cases. You’ll also hear about someone who, after many years of trying criminal cases, is really considered a master of his craft and is held in very high regard throughout the country. I think you’ll enjoy hearing Jim’s story on this podcast.
