Review James Schulze

About Me

I have been practicing law in Little Rock since 1983.  I am married to Helena McGill Schulze, to whom I have also been married since 1983.  We have two sons, Christopher and Benjamin, both of whom are working in the computer field.


 


I am an amateur linguist who practices law for a living.  The only second language in which I am fluent enough to do business is Spanish, but I know a smattering of a few other languages.


 


My favorite area of practice is appellate law.  I also enjoy working with expert witnesses on scientific issues.  I do a lot of Social Security disability and personal injury litigation.  I also do some civil rights work from time to time.
