Mr. Moncus joined the firm in 2003, after graduation from Vanderbilt Law School. He is an Alabama native and was born and raised in the central part of the State. Since joining the firm, his practice has been devoted exclusively to representing the rights of individuals and small businesses in civil litigation. In his first few years at Hare Wynn, Jamie tried several jury cases to verdict, obtaining favorable results for his clients in a wide variety of matters. Early on, he was also fortunate to be involved in several appellate victories, and has argued cases in many different courts, from the Southern District of New York, to the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Today, his trial practice is focused primarily in areas of severe personal injury, wrongful death, breach of contract, medical malpractice, defective products, class actions, and qui tam litigation under the Federal False Claims Act. While Jamie enjoys handing cases throughout Alabama, he also routinely travels to other states to handle litigation. Currently, he is involved in pending cases in Mississippi, Texas, Florida, and West Virginia.
Jamie is deeply committed to the principle that every person is entitled to equal respect and dignity under the law. “What drives me most is looking into the eyes of a client, or an injured child, and realizing the harm and pain they have endured because of the acts of a careless corporation, or a negligent individual. It can be an incredibly rewarding experience to help these people, and to give them the help that the law affords them. To me, that is what being a trial lawyer is all about—making a difference in the lives of our clients and knowing that by doing so, we are often able to make a difference in the lives of others we will never meet.”
Jamie reminds himself often that the verdicts and settlements he has been fortunate to obtain for his clients not only honor those individual clients with the dignity and respect the law provides for them, but also protect our communities and makes us all safer.
Outside the office, Jamie enjoys a variety of outdoor activities, including backpacking, photography, running, sailing, golf, and climbing. Recently, he climbed to the summit of Mount Rainier in Washington State.
