Bronson James is the attorney that the Super 100 attorneys go to for expert legal advice. A noted authority in both Federal and Oregon criminal law as well as an expert appeal tactician Mr. James’ legal opinion is also asked for by Court Judges prior to their rulings.
Mr. James was on the “short list” for consideration as one of Oregon’s state Appellant Judges. Justly earned as he successfully argued the 2014 U.S. Supreme Court case Riley v. California as counsel for the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Brennan Center for Justice. In this landmark Supreme Court decision, national law enforcement officers now can no longer search cell phones without a court ordered search warrant based upon probable cause.
I was fortunate to have Mr. James on my legal defense team as he was able to recommend and negotiate the best possible outcome for my case based on his legal acumen and professional reputation. I most strongly recommend Mr. James either as your primary defense council or to work with your primary defense council during trial to prepare the strongest appeal case if necessary. Mr. James is one of those few professional attorneys who can give you your life back.

My family is very greatful to Bronson James and I would hate to think what the outcome of our situation would have been without him. I would recommend him to anyone who would ever need an attorney, and in the event I ever needed an attorney again I would be calling Bronson James. He is wonderful!

I have known Bronson James on a professional level for over nine years now. He is an innovative, brilliant, and dedicated attorney who always has the best interest of his clients in mind. Few attorneys in Oregon have a better understanding of the law than Bronson, and I never hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney.
