About me

I was born in Rota, Spain at the U.S. Naval Station.  When I was growing up, my Spanish uncles liked to tease me that Rota is the land of the tomato and the watermelon and that I could never be the president of the United States.  My father's side of the family is from south Texas for generations.  But my mother's side of the family is from southern Spain.  As a result, I grew up in two different cultures. 


I have always had a great interest in literature, philosophy, and religion.  But as an attorney, I greatly appreciate the privilege to play a small but practical part in the judicial system. It is an honor to serve any individual client watchfully.

  • Jeremy Ficarola

    James appeared on my behalf on a Motion to Reopen and Rescind an in absentia order of removal and to terminate proceedings in immigration court. He is very professional and methodical in his approach through potential immigration issues. He took the time to really prepare himself for the hearing and ultimately was successful in granting the relief I sought for my client. I endorse James.
