With his prior experience defending insurance companies, James uses his technical savviness to help consumers and small businesses navigate complex systems while seeking justice.
James Ulwick is an associate in DiCello Levitt’s Chicago office with experience litigating complex commercial cases and actions involving serious injuries. He represents individuals, businesses, and public entities in a wide range of disputes, protecting their interests in state and federal courts across the country.
Prior to joining the firm, James was an insurance defense attorney, representing individuals, corporations, and local municipalities through all stages of litigation.
He has successfully argued for the dismissal of several suits, including their subsequent appeals in multiple state courts of appeal, and has successfully obtained favorable resolutions for his clients through dispositive motions, mediation, and settlement. While this experience was valuable, James joined the firm because he wanted to pivot his focus from defending insurance companies to protecting consumers and those injured by corporate malfeasance.
Outside of the office, James has focused on assisting in the development of the next generation of trial and appellate litigators by coaching the Loyola University Chicago National Health Law Moot Court Team.
