Why Choose Us

A Team Not An Attorney:

The James Law firm boasts multiple full-time paralegals, a dedicated investigator, and many of-counsel attorneys with which we often associate, including top federal attorneys as well as a retired judge, just to name a few.

Areas of Focus:

The James Law Firm focuses on being SECOND TO NONE when it comes to drug, domestic and dwi cases. Over the years we have spent countless hours and resources making sure that we are abreast of the latest developments and changes to the laws and treatment programs as well as maintaining healthy relationships with prosecutors and judges.

Client Support:

Communication with our clients and their families is paramount to us. While many attorneys concentrate only on the criminal case at hand, when needed, we assist our clients with obtaining the best possible treatment for any personal issues that may have lead to the situation at hand. Our goals are to keep you out of jail as well as put you on a path to success so that this is your LAST brush with the criminal justice system, if you so desire.

Violent Crimes:

With respect to more severe crimes, our firm typically associates with top lawyers in that area and attacks the cases aggressively. Violent and sex cases typically involve victims and require tremendous man hours to ensure your rights are protected and the wrongfully accused get the best defense possible. If you are charged with one of these crimes, hiring competent counsel as quickly as possible is paramount to your outcome.


We try to keep our prices competitive, as we don’t feel that only the wealthy should be able to receive the best defense possible. However, if you are looking for the cheapest lawyers, we are not them. If you are in trouble and looking for the BEST defense, contact us immediately.
