El Paso Texas Board Certified Civil Trial and Consumer and Commercial Law Attorney

-by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization

Resolving disputes is my business

I am Steve James, Attorney at Law. I am proud to be an attorney who can handle a wide variety of disputed matters. Other lawyers call me aggressive and tough. But I always make an ethical presentation.  I do not make the facts, but I present them well. Drawing on my skills as an arbitrator and mediator, I work hard to resolve your case to meet your needs. But if the case has to go to court, know that I am a fearless and well respected litigator.

I handle cases primarily in the following areas:

The personal touch

After your free initial phone consultation, during which I hear from you about your legal issue, I decide whether to pursue your case or refer you to someone else in El Paso's network of lawyers. If I think I can help you, I invite you into the office for a more in-depth discussion. I will not offer any legal advice over the phone.

When you come into my office, you will not see the usual trappings of a law office. Instead, you will see World War II artworks, particularly of battles in the Pacific. My three uncles fought for all of us in that theater during World War II. These scenes inspire me to fight for my clients every day in the state and federal courts in Texas.

You will always be able to reach me. I will call you back personally, because there is no paralegal or junior lawyer, no one to pass you on to. That also means there are no extraneous costs or fees for such extra personnel.

Referrals are the greatest compliment

Satisfied clients refer their friends and colleagues to me. So do other lawyers, even opponents. A frequent speaker on employment, consumer, and civil litigation issues throughout Texas, I am well known in legal circles. For the last nine years, I have been listed in the Texas list of Super Lawyers, 2006-2016, by Thomson Reuters in the areas of general litigation and employment and labor law. My peers have been kind enough to rate me, resulting in  AV® Peer Review RatedSMby Martindale-Hubbell® and I have been named repeatedly in the annual editions of the Martindale-Hubbell® Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers™.
