About Me

Thank you for reviewing my AVVO profile.  It is my privilege to serve your legal needs.


Law is a second career for me, having already achieved a fulfilling business career in telecommunications.  I graduated from the Seattle University School of Law in 2005, Summa Cum Laude, graduating tenth out of 341 students.  I was an editor on the law review and a published author.


I have a diverse practice with an emphasis on real estate, family law, and criminal defense.


I am a long-time resident of Snohomish County, and I look forward to meeting you.  You can find additional information about me on the Deno-Millikan website at


Once again, thank you for your interest and I look forward to meeting you.

  • Samuel Kirtland Darling

    You won't regret hiring Jim. I refer him the majority of my clients who request services falling outside my practice areas. He's exceptionally bright, and he has a remarkable record of success at trial.
