Daily Report Calls Firm “Trial Ready,” Profiles Durham’s Career from Federal Prosecutor to Partner
In a feature article by Meredith Hobbs, “Top Federal Prosecutor Joins High-Profile Savannah Plaintiff’s Firm,” the Daily Report describes Jim Durham’s move from the top federal prosecutor for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Georgia to private practice.
“I loved every minute that I spent in the U.S. attorney’s office prosecuting cases, then leading the office,” Durham said in an interview for the article.
One of Durham’s mentors, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, was also quoted in the article. She said he “represented the very best of the Department of Justice—skill, courage and an unrelenting dedication to the mission of the department. Not only is Jim a fantastic attorney, he has always demonstrated a special responsibility to seek justice.”
Durham called Savage and his law partner Bart Turner the “quiet giants in the plaintiffs arena,” who take on “some of the biggest and most complex plaintiffs cases in the state.” He will be handling catastrophic injury and business torts at Savage Turner.
