Commercial Litigation

Barth, James C.
James C. Barth, P. A.

After roughly 30 years of a general trial practice, in Leon County at first, and Okaloosa and Walton counties for the next 25 plus years, I became “of counsel” to the Dunlap & Shipman firm in Grayton Beach and reduced my practice hours so dramatically that about the only thing I do professionally now is mediate. I enjoy mediating cases and still am available to do so.
