He worked several years for both a CPA Firm and in Public Accounting for Macomb County government, before returning to law school. James received his law degree, in 1987, from Cooley Law School. James brings a wealth of experience both in and out of the courtroom, working with businesses, corporations and individuals from doctors, brokers and politicians to the average person. His experience consists of successfully litigated jury trials in twenty-five different courts, from capital life felony cases to civil death and litigation cases. He has also mediated well over one-thousand cases that never reached the trial stage.
