“The difference between the possible and the impossible lies in a person’s determination.” Tommy Lasorda
You can drive the US-19 or SR-54 corridors and see dozens of billboards promoting one attorney or another, the majority of which focus on personal injury. However, you would be hard-pressed to find a team of lawyers more determined to help their clients and their community, more so than the team at Lucas|Magazine. Few people realize not all the attorneys advertising with billboards actually litigate their own cases, quite often they hire Lucas|Magazine to handle the litigation leading up to and including the trial.
Jeff Lucas’ roots run deep in Pinellas and Pasco Counties. His academic path led him from Dunedin High School to the University of Tampa, where he studied criminology under an Army ROTC full-ride scholarship. Once his bachelor studies were complete, Jeff was commissioned as an Army Officer as a United States Army Military Police Lieutenant.
He continued his law degree at Western California School of Law in San Diego. Jeff returned to Florida, passed the Florida Bar, and began his service as a Pasco public defender. Later, he joined a civil litigation firm in Tarpon Springs. He opened his own private practice in New Port Richey in 1999, and worked seven days a week for more than a decade to make it a success.
James Magazine (Jim), a native of Cleveland, OH, joined the firm in 2006 as a partner after serving as a partner in a large litigation firm in St. Petersburg. Jim Magazine transformed the firm, adding incredible civil litigation experience along with a reputation in the legal community for his tenacity. From the beginning of their outstanding partnership, built on a foundation of hard work, integrity, and respect, Jeff & Jim both worked tirelessly to support their existing clientele, and build the practice with new clients needing expert legal counsel and superior, experienced trial attorneys. Jim’s specialties include personal injury, wrongful death, and insurance bad faith claims in the state of Florida.
Jim is a board certified trial attorney, and he has been named one of the TOP 100 Trial Lawyers in the State of Florida. The firm is often hired by other attorneys to litigate challenging cases throughout the state, as well as across the United States.
Together, this dynamic, tenacious team, along with their experienced associate attorneys, has a proven track record and more than 150 years combined experience successfully representing their clients.
The firm’s commitment to the citizens of Pasco, Hernando and Pinellas Counties, is not limited to matters of law. Jeff & Jim established the Lucas| Magazine Community Foundation, an organization that primarily supports and assist Veterans, First Responders, single parents and children.
