Former New York City Prosecutor Will Defend You.
When I graduated law school in 1998, I began working for the Kings County District Attorney’s Office (that is Brooklyn). I worked there for six years on a wide range of cases. They included petty crime to large scale narcotics investigations involving extensive violence and gang activity.
When I left the District Attorney’s Office, I represented physicians throughout New York City, Long Island and Westchester County. These were medical malpractice cases where the doctors were being sued.
Though it paid much more, I did not enjoy my four years in civil litigation. All that I did was for the ‘money’ – my client was an insurance company, my boss wanted a set number of billable hours each month, and the plaintiffs’ attorneys only wanted a large settlement. I missed criminal law. I missed working for an individual’s interests. I wanted to focue on that again so, when I returned to southern California, I decided to focus on criminal law.
If you have been arrested, call me. I will fight for you.

I consulted James on a number of criminal cases. His experience as a former prosecutor and seasoned defense attorney contributed great insight when evaluating the merits, potential defenses, and general concerns of my litigation matters. He is a well-informed attorney and I highly recommend his counsel.
