I graduated from Harvard College with a degree in government, cum laude.

Thereafter I spent a year at the University of Erlangen in Germany on a DAAD fellowship studying history and philosophy. Upon returning to the United States, I attended Cornell University where I received a law degree and an MBA in finance. I have practiced law for many years in Scottsdale. My practice involves civil litigation including personal injury cases, commercial litigation, and divorce.

I have an AV Martindale Hubbell rating of (5.0/5.0).

In the course of my career as a lawyer, I have served as a judge pro tern of the Maricopa County Superior Court, as a Special Assistant Attorney General for the State of Arizona, and as a member of the Paradise Valley Town Council where I also served as Vice Mayor.

Over the years I have handled hundreds of automobile accident cases, wrongful death cases, divorces, and construction claims.

"We are thrilled with the excellent legal representation that we have received from Jim Vieh and his paralegal team. He is not only an exceptional and highly experienced litigator but also has a comforting confidence in the process. We highly recommend Jim to anyone looking for an attorney who will protect your interest while providing needed insights and strategies for a victorious legal outcome." Mark New
"I have known and been a client of Jim’s for many years. Jim has represented several of my businesses, my personal work, and many miscellaneous issues. He has proven his worth over and over and gotten better at his profession each year I have dealt with him. Dealing with Jim enables a client to speak directly with him. He is one of the best, if not the best attorney in Arizona, not a junior attorney in a large firm." Bob Hope
