About Jim Matthews

Jarryd's Lawyer

Jim Matthews is a member of the firm, Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley, P.C., practicing in the Athens, Georgia, area, specializing in Plaintiff’s Personal Injury and Business litigation. Jim was drawn to Jarryd’s case in part by “Jarryd’s and his parents’ integrity and Jarryd’s wanting to turn a negative into a positive. I told the Wallaces honestly that I do not have a ‘win at all costs’ approach. I will not be anything less than completely honest with the other side and with the court and that essentially, the facts will speak for themselves. They agreed. Hard work and an honest presentation of the facts won the day. I am so proud that Jarryd persevered and became a Paralympic Champion and that I played a small role in that.“
