“Helping people, letting them know that there’s a good human being out there standing up for them, and fighting to put them back in the shoes they wore prior to their injury means that I’m making a difference in the world for the better. It means that I am fighting the good fight. It means that I can go to sleep at night and be proud of what I do.”
As a compassionate and zealous pre-litigation attorney who truly values his abilities at “making a difference in the world for the better,” Jimmy Brittain always welcomes his opportunity to Stand Up for You and is a true winner for his clients, his coworkers, and his community through his representation of CR Legal Team since 2003. His experience with his father being injured in a motor vehicle accident while he was in law school has instilled in Jimmy his constant mission to fight to win, to fight for justice, and to fight for what is right.
He graduated cum laude from Lenoir-Rhyne University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Pre-Law and then received his Juris Doctor from the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University. Jimmy’s admissions and memberships include the North Carolina State Bar, the North Carolina Bar Association, and the North Carolina Advocates for Justice.
In much the same way that he is a winner for his clients, his coworkers, and his community, Jimmy is additionally a winner as a participant in numerous North Carolina, regional, national, and international beard competitions. In 2020 he placed second in the Braw Beard and Moustache Championships in Glasgow, Scotland. In 2019 he won second place in the North Carolina Beard and Moustache Championships; third place in Full Beard, Natural Over 12 Inches at the 10th Annual Southeastern Beard and Moustache Championships; and the National Championship in the Full Beard, Best Groomed 18 – 24” category at the National Beard and Moustache Championships in Tinley Park, Illinois. He was also featured on ESPN’s news show E:60 regarding a story about the sport of competitive bearding. In the 2018 North Carolina Beard and Moustache Championships, Jimmy won third place in the Full Beard, Over 12 Inches category. In addition to all those winnings, he is the current Beard Product Ambassador for Duke Cannon Supply Company.
