James focuses on all forms of civil litigation, including commercial and energy-related matters, with an emphasis on proceedings pending in bankruptcy court. His work benefits from the strong writing, research, and communication skills as well as the robust knowledge base he cultivated as a federal bankruptcy court clerk. During his two-year clerkship term with the Hon. Erik P. Kimball in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida, James drafted opinions and memoranda and analyzed Chapter 11 “first day” motions, disclosure statements, and plans.

Previously, James clerked for the Hon. Randall M. Howe in the Arizona Court of Appeals, Division One; the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona; and the California Attorney General’s Office, Criminal Division, Appeals, Writs and Trials Unit. He also served as a judicial extern for the Hon. Brenda M. Whinery in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona and the Hon. Bruce G. Macdonald in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona.
