Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, James (Jim) Bizzieri attended Marist High School on a full academic/athletic sponsorship. After high school, Jim attended the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, where he majored in Finance and was a member of the Men’s Volleyball Team. He graduated from college in just 3.5 years then went on to attend John Marshall Law School. Jim earned his Juris Doctorate in only 2.5 years, graduating in the top of his class in 2005. To refine his litigation techniques and skills, Jim worked at a Chicago plaintiff’s personal injury firm, and for the Cook County State’s Attorney, both in the civil and criminal divisions during law school.

At the outset of his legal career, Jim practiced at a Chicago litigation defense firm for 3 years, where he successfully defended his clients in transportation collisions, premises liability actions, construction accidents, and cases involving negligent supervision with insurance policies in excess of $1,000,000. Within 6 months of becoming a licensed attorney, Jim won his first jury trial in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Law Division.

Throughout his career, he has aggressively, but tactfully, prosecuted claims both in and out court, receiving significant recoveries for his clients. Working on the defense side has given Jim a unique perspective and competitive edge in his representation of injured clients, enabling him to maximize recovery and results.

In 2009, Jim decided to open his own practice, founding Bizzieri Law Offices. In his practice, Jim continues to pursue fair and just returns for his clients who have suffered injuries due to negligence or in the workplace.

Jim is affiliated with several bar associations, the Justinian Law Society, and the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association. He is admitted to practice law in the State of Illinois and the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. He is married to Renee Bizzieri (formerly Renee Nash), a pharmacist and former pro-beach volleyball player. Currently, they have three young children.
