Of Counsel

“James is not just a great lawyer; he’s one of the smartest and most caring people I know!”

– Chris Burrel

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.
