About Jim Thornton:

Jim Thornton joined Thornton & Coy, P.L.L.C. in 2004 after having worked in a private law firm, for a large insurance company, and for the Iowa Insurance Division. Jim returned to private practice because he missed the personal interaction with clients and the variety of challenges found in a general practice setting.


Jim graduated from Iowa State University in 1994 and from Drake University’s Law School in 1997. He is a member of the Iowa Bar Association, National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys, and is admitted to practice law in the State of Iowa before both the state and federal courts.
