Personal Message from James
I graduated from the University Of Nebraska College Of Law in the spring of 2008. After graduation, I began working at the 4th Judicial District Attorney’s Office located in Colorado Springs. My first assignment was to prosecute in Teller County, Colorado. I spent close to a year prosecuting DUI offenses, traffic offenses, misdemeanors, and juvenile crimes, both felonies and misdemeanors, before transferring to Colorado Springs.
In Colorado Springs, I worked for another three years prosecuting mainly felonies of all levels. I personally participated in well over fifty jury trials winning nearly every one.
This work gives me a unique perspective and an advantage as a criminal defense attorney and courtroom litigator. I know what the prosecution is planning and the tactics they will use. I know how to defend against it and how to protect your rights.
After leaving the District Attorney’s Office in 2012, I have made it my commitment to defend those who have been accused of a crime or are going through a difficult time in their life.
My experience tells me that most people are good people but may have made a poor choice that could have lasting consequences. My goal is to limit the lasting consequences and help people get their lives back on track.
With a compassion founded in a love for my fellow man, I desire to serve and use the talents I have been given for the benefit of others.
