Like many of his clients, James shares a diverse background. Son to a father who emigrated from the Philippines in the 1960’s and a mother born and raised in Harlan, Kentucky, James brings a unique perspective to his cases. James considers himself a true Virginian. He spent his grade school years in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, “Coal Country,” in Grundy, Virginia. In high school, his family moved to Richmond, and James completed his undergraduate studies at UVA in Charlottesville.
James earned his J.D. from Syracuse University College of Law in 2008. However, graciously, the University of Richmond allowed him to finish his last year of law school in Richmond so that he could help out with a family emergency. Since then, James has remained in the Commonwealth where he’s been practicing Personal Injury & Criminal Defense. When asked about his trial experience, James recalls, “while my friends were going to Barack Obama’s inauguration speech, I was in a two-week murder trial. I got thrown in right away, and haven’t wanted to leave the courtroom since.”
