Shareholder   |   Phoenix

Jim Mackie represents employers in all aspects of employment law, including state and federal employment discrimination claims, harassment claims, wrongful discharge, retaliation, restrictive covenants, and wage claims.  While regularly providing advice to employer clients on a wide variety of employment matters and litigation avoidance, Jim’s practice emphasizes litigation and appellate practice in state and federal courts, and practice before administrative agencies. In that regard, Jim is recognized by Best Lawyers in America in the areas of Employment Law – Management, Litigation – Labor and Employment Law, and has been named by Best Lawyers as a “Lawyer of the Year” in Tucson seven times, including, most recently, as the 2024 “Lawyer of the Year” for both Employment Law – Management and Litigation – Labor and Employment.

Prior to joining the firm, Jim was a partner with the Tucson office of a regional general practice firm, where he concentrated his efforts in employment litigation, employment counseling and general commercial litigation.  He has served as chair of the Executive Committee of the State Bar of Arizona’s Employment and Labor Law Section, and as an Executive Council Member of the Tucson Division of the Federal Bar Association.  Prior to becoming an attorney, he worked in various management positions with national, regional and local businesses, experience which he calls upon to work as a “business partner” with his clients, as well as a legal counselor to them.
