James L. Holt, Jr. ("Jim") is a partner who focuses his practice on employment law counseling and litigation. He is a frequent speaker and writer on the subjects of FMLA, ADA, discrimination and wrongful discharge. Jim is admitted in Tennessee (1986) and California (1988) and represents clients in both state and federal courts. He is also admitted in the Court of Appeals for the Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Circuits. He is a member of the American Bar Association, Tennessee and California Bar Associations, and Memphis Bar Association (Employment Law Section).
Jim was born July 16, 1955, in Columbia, South Carolina, or to be more precise, Fort Jackson. He grew up in Memphis, graduated from Memphis State University with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Communications (1978). Before attending law school, Jim worked in film and video production. In 1986, he received his J.D. from the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law at Memphis State.
Jim is happily married, lives in Cordova, Tennessee, and is a member of Hope Presbyterian. Jim loves sports, especially softball and basketball. This year — much to the distress of those on adjacent fairways — Jim has resumed the game of golf. The credit or blame for this lies primarily with his discovery of the Adams Hybrids. So far, there has been no injury to person or property.
