James came to our firm as an associate lawyer after spending two years practicing law in Melville, Saskatchewan, though he’s always considered Saskatoon his home. James earned a Bachelor of Commerce from the Edwards School of Business before attending the College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan and adding a Juris Doctor to his wall. While in school James completed a semester of practical study at CLASSIC (Community Legal Assistance Services for Saskatoon Inner City), a law clinic offering legal services to low-income individuals in Saskatoon. James maintains a general practice in all areas of law with a focus on family law.

Outside of our office you can find James jogging, playing squash, or enjoying an ice cream by the river. James is a long-time member of the Saskatoon Summer Players having performed and volunteered with them for nearly 10 years. He has also performed with the Saskatoon-based organizations Cornerstone Theatre and Music for the Gut.
