At the Law Offices of James V. Sansone, our founding attorney, James V. Sansone, has devoted our firm to providing caring and dedicated legal assistance to clients throughout Santa Rosa, California, and the extended North Bay. Prior to starting our firm, Mr. Sansone worked for a Northern California Law Firm, the Sonoma County District Attorney's Office and Redwood Credit Union. His experiences in these positions gave him the passion needed to form his own law firm with the intention of providing legal assistance in a unique manner, one full of integrity and personalized attention to every client.
