Outside Nexsen Pruet
My love for courtrooms and a good legal defense is rivaled only by my love of basketball courts and a good press defense.
Although Jimmy is a seasoned litigator, his favorite courts are the ones with basketball hoops. He has coached a girls church league basketball team for years. He is also a long time owner in both a Fantasy Football League and a Fantasy Baseball League.
