The focus.

That’s now the primary focus here at James Law: defending the rights and liberties of those who’ve been accused of crimes. Although I still maintain a civil-litigation practice, focused generally on real-estate and contractual disputes and claims where others have been defrauded, this firm devotes 90% of its attention to criminal litigation, both at the trial and appellate level.

James Law is a one-stop shop for criminal-defense representation both in the trial and appellate courts.
