About James Baron

About me

The majority of my my practice centers around legal issues between students and schools.  This issue is my passion.  Clients range from pre-Kindergarten through graduate schools.  I also maintain a significant estate planning practice, including estate planning for families with special needs children.  In addition to my J.D., I also have a Master's Degree in Education and a teaching certification.  I am a member of the bar in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Florida.


I attended Suffolk Law School as an evening student, working full-time to support my family.  While at Suffolk, I earned a spot on the Law Review, where I focused my research and writing on the issue of the MCAS graduation requirement as it relates to children with special needs.  I graduated from Suffolk cum laude.


In my personal life, I serve as Vice President and on the Board of Directors of Temple Beth Israel in Waltham.  I also serve on the Board of Directors of two other organizations: the Waltham Community Foundation, a charitable organization that provides financial assistance to charities that benefit the people of Waltham, as well as GWARC, which assists people with intellectual challenges.


I am married, and have one daughter.  I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, playing the piano, playing golf, and watching the Red Sox.
