Location: Durham, North Carolina
As a versatile attorney with more than 20 years of experience, Mr. Jordan currently works to assist clients with their North Carolina eminent domain issues.
"Everyone hopes to be treated fairly, but they may not understand the system is stacked against them. Our purpose is to level the playing field in order to offer our clients the protection they deserve when the government takes their property."
Mr. Jordan's charitable track record is extensive. He's a member of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) and the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ), where he serves on their Ethics Committee and Legislative Committee. He previously chaired the Publications Committee and served on the NCAJ Board of Governors. He has served on so many NCAJ committees that he's been given their "Order of Service" award numerous times since the award's inception. Mr. Jordan has been a regular speaker at various continuing legal education (CLE) seminars, and served as a host and emcee for various legal programs.
In addition to his work with the NCAJ, Mr. Jordan served in numerous roles on committees and subsections for the North Carolina Bar Association, and several years on the Advisory Board for the North Carolina Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). Mr. Jordan also authored parts of the North Carolina Personal Injury Liens Manual. He is active with his church, serving as a small group leader and filling in where needed.
Mr. Jordan received his J.D. from the North Carolina Central University School of Law. He received his B.A. in Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he wrote for The Daily Tar Heel and the UNC Journalist. Although Mr. Jordan has been recognized for his contributions to the broader legal community, his true passion is working to ensure the firm's clients receive the help they need.
He is a member of the North Carolina State Bar, the North Carolina Bar Association, the 14th Judicial District Bar Association, and the Durham Bar Association.
The NC Eminent Domain Law Firm is a standalone practice working under the umbrella of the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, which Mr. Jordan joined in 2001. This practice includes more than 35 attorneys, and has been helping people fight for their legal rights since 1997.
