From James Twine:
“I have a true passion for criminal defense work. I’ve spent all of my professional career as an attorney in areas of law where I thought I could be the most help to everyday people. When people ask me what type of business I’m in, I tell them I’m in the people business. I’ve had the privilege of meeting so many wonderful people on my journey, and I hope to continue serving the people in my community.”
