James D. Cunningham
Senior Vice President & Division President, Midwest Region
Since 1993, Jim has worked with some of the leading companies in the litigation support industry. From operating in a hands-on role at Nightrider, handling large-scale, highly complex scanning projects to Uniscribe/Williams-Lee where he was at the forefront of industry changes involving eDiscovery, Jim’s entire career has revolved around harnessing the power of technology for his clients.
After being heavily sought after to lead the Midwest record retrieval operations for U.S. Legal Support, Jim joined the team in 2006. Wasting no time, he expanded the operations to offer court reporting related services to clients. Sales growth and strategic acquisitions only strengthened our presence and established U.S. Legal Support as a dominating force in the Midwest. In addition to the divisional operation, Jim is also responsible for setting the strategic vision that drives the success of U.S. Legal Support’s inside sales team and the National Accounts group.
The future holds continued growth – there are lots of new markets and new service lines to pursue. Jim’s philosophy of success in his role is rooted in the idea of never being satisfied, and powering growth with an operations team with a whatever-it-takes attitude. If you’re aware of the client’s need, and respond to them, you’ll be rewarded for the work. Do what needs doing, do it well, and growth will follow.
Jim is a graduate of Northern Illinois University and lives in the Chicago area with his two children.
