Jim Ross of Jim Ross Law Group knows what it’s like to serve on the front lines. He served his country as a U.S. Marine. He served his city as an Arlington police officer. Now, he is committed to serving greater Arlington and North Texas as a role model for all small business leaders.
With the help of the Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Stars, Dallas Wings, American Airlines Center and Coach Bob Stoops, Ross made a heartfelt video showcasing North Texas’ gratitude for the community’s emergency service workers.
“We all partnered up with each other for a reason,” says Ross. “That’s because there is a mutual respect that we all try to do what we can to help our community and to support one another.”
Ross was motivated to show his support because of his compassion and personal experience. “Not only am I a veteran, but I am a former police officer here in Arlington,” he says. “I know first hand about being out on the streets and dealing with crisis situations.”
It’s times like this that Jim Ross reminds us to think about those who are making sacrifices to keep us safe. “There are a lot of people out there who day in and day out put their personal lives in jeopardy to help,” he says. “Without the work they are doing, Lord only knows where we would be with this pandemic. They are not running around saying look at what I did, but we should be saying look at what they are doing.”
While Jim Ross is thanking the community’s hardworking medical workers, his heart goes out to the small businesses that are facing uncertainty. For businesses that are struggling, he stresses the importance of relationships: “If you can nurture relationships, those people will look to encourage you, help you get business and rely on you.”
Jim Ross Group is offering support to businesses and the community. The firm is providing free wills, medical and general power of attorney and physician directives. “It is a very small way we can give back to the community that has given so much to all of us,” he says. For more: jimrosslaw.com.
