“James is not just a great lawyer; he’s one of the smartest and most caring people I know!” – Chris Burrell
Though I may be one of the most seasoned and knowledgeable lawyers in Birmingham, AL, I combine my years of skill and experience with an unyielding determination to provide the outstanding representation my clients deserve.
I am a Birmingham, AL native. I graduated from Western-Olin High School, Alabama A&M University and the University of Alabama-Birmingham. After working for the State of Alabama for a number of years, I earned my law degree from Birmingham School of Law.
I aim to be a calming and reassuring advocate for my clients. While I have knowledge of many practice areas, my primary focus is family law, probate matters, and general civil litigation. I practice in the municipal and state courts of Alabama as well as the U. S. District Courts for the northern and middle districts of Alabama.
I am active in several areas of my community. Some of my associations include:
- American Bar Association
- Birmingham Bar Association
- National Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys
- Sixth Avenue Baptist Church (Board Member)
- Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
