  • Donald Lloyd Pitman

    Throughout the many years I have worked with and against Attorney James, she has always shown herself to be a tenacious advocate and has done very well for her clients. She is more than willing to try any case to defend her client and has also proven herself very able to help parties set aside their personal differences and assist them in resolving painful issues to their benefit to the point that both my client and hers thanked her for her assistance. In family law, that is rare, and she certainly earned the praise.

    I strongly endorse Attorney James. She is a tenacious opponent and advocate for her clients. Having said that, her zealous advocacy does not negate her ability to maintain a professional relationship with opposing counsel. I am sure that her clients benefit greatly from her abilities.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Public Reprimand
    issued in MA, 2016


    Public reprimand means that an attorney did something wrong, but may still practice law. The attorney was given a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

    Jamie’s comment: “This reprimand has been fully addressed and deals with entrusting accounting to a secretary who deposited funds into a wrong account. She did not follow the strict standards of legal accounting. Not a single client lost any money during this time, and I now ensure strict oversight on bookkeeping with an expert accounting firm. Client satisfaction remains top priority, detailed by numerous client reviews of my zealous, top-caliber representation in countless custody & high-stakes divorce cases.”
