James D. Utrecht
Jim is a lifelong resident of Miami County. He has been active in the Troy Community.
"I believe a lawyer owes it to his community to 'give back' to it. Over the years I have practiced law in Miami County, I have volunteered to serve on numerous civic and fraternal organization committees and boards. I have always been a proud member of my community and I stay involved as much as possible in making it a fine place to live and work."
On January 19, 2011 Jim Utrecht was presented with the Golden Gavel Award by Westfield Insurance Company, for his efforts in obtaining a defense verdict in Winner Brothers v. Seitz Electric, in Darke County Common Pleas Court.
Jim was again awarded the Westfield Insurance Golden Gavel Award in 2016.
