March 22, 2016 | Mentions

Jackson Walker attorney James McFall was featured in a KENS5.com article about the formation of the Windcrest/Northeast Bridge Builders nonprofit and its sponsorship of a screening of Carter High to a select group of Roosevelt High School students and community leaders. Carter High was produced by Play Now Enterprise, a Dallas-based production company that is managed and operated by the legendary Greg Ellis of the Dallas Cowboys. Jackson Walker and Play Now Enterprise also sponsored the event.

The Windcrest/Northeast Bridge Builders nonprofit was formed by Mr. McFall and four of his former Roosevelt Rough Rider football teammates as they discussed the events that took place in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014. This partnership between the Windcrest/Northeast Bridge Builders and Play Now Enterprises came about through Mr. McFall’s legal representation of the company in the past.

The inspirational movie Carter High was shown to the group of Roosevelt students to illustrate how one bad choice can lead to a lifetime of adverse consequences. Mr. Ellis also played a huge role in the event, agreeing to sign autographs and offer advice to students regarding the importance of consistently making positive decisions in all of their endeavors.

Mr. McFall’s legal practice focuses on complex commercial, construction, first amendment, and media litigation, including cases of alleged fraud, tortious interference, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, defamation, and theft of trade secrets. He also has significant experience representing large national banks and other financial institutions in a variety of matters, including multimillion-dollar disputes. He has represented lenders, corporate officers, and corporate directors in high-stakes corporate defense cases involving claims for breach of fiduciary duty and fraud. He was appointed to co-chair for the American Bar Association’s First Amendment and Media Law Diversity Moot Court Competition. Mr. McFall received his B.A. and M.A. degrees from Stanford University and his J.D. from Washington University School of Law.
