Review James Warden

About Me

I am very interested in not only what my clients are charged with but also their history.  Everyone has a story to tell and I want to hear it.  The details of the struggles that my clients have had and how they have sometimes overcome those obstacles is often essential in my representation.  I do a tremendous amount of reading and research during the week.  I am also actively involved in community work and work with the youth each week.
