Jamie Bordas is a Wheeling, WV native. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame Law School in 2000, he returned to the Ohio Valley to join the law firm that had been founded by his parents, Jim and Linda, 15 years earlier.  In 2005, he became the managing partner of the law firm of Bordas & Bordas and has overseen its growth throughout the region.

In addition to leading much of the firm’s charitable work, Jamie has also served as a coach for many years.
