ATTORNEY PROFILE

S. James Boumil is an attorney with in-depth experience in both domestic and international civil litigation. He was awarded his doctorate (cum laude) from Boston College in 1972 after taking a degree in physics (mathematics minor). Attorney Boumil has often found his scientific background to be a critical advantage in the practice of law.

Imagine, for example, that you have a business litigation involving a mathematical modeling of economic hard, manufacturing process, trade secrets or hi-tech issues. Who would digest the facts and form a plan more efficiently – someone who major in history or political science, or someone who has professional experience in the science laboratory? The same is true of a variety of cases, whether they are malpractice or personal injury claims with complex medical and factual presentations.

Attorney Boumil has successfully handled multi-million dollar cases in jurisdictions as far flung as Hong Kong, Japan, and the Middle East we well as numerous States. Some of the judgments obtained are among the largest in the jurisdictions where issued.

Attorney Boumil has also served widely in his community. He was a member of the Board of Directors of the Human Services Corporation, which was instrumental in bringing the “Urban National Park” to Lowell, MA. He was appointed by Governor Frank Sargent to serve as the Chairman of the University of Lowell Building Authority, and saw its bond rating go from “junk bond” status to “A” rated under his tenure. He was appointed “Special Assistant Attorney General” to the University of Lowell Board of Trustees by Attorney General Francis Belotti. Recently he served as litigation counsel to the Merrimack Valley Residents for the Environment in an entirely pro-bono effort to block construction of a potentially polluting power plant. [Conversely, he has also represented power plant developers in international transactions.]
