James A. Graham
James Graham is originally from Shreveport, Louisiana. For the last 10 years, he’s served the good people of New Orleans, representing them in all manner of family law, immigration, bankruptcy, and Social Security matters. But when he came to Knoxville, he felt like he was coming home. Turns out, folks who need a lawyer here are just like folks who need a lawyer everywhere, and his passion for helping those in need – for fighting the good fight on behalf of his clients – makes him a natural fit here at the firm.
Before becoming an attorney, Mr. Graham worked as an educator in New Orleans. He then served in executive positions in real estate and education. After earning a degree from Loyola Law School, Mr. Graham sought to use his real world experience to benefit clients in his community. He is a member of the New Orleans Bar Association and the American Bar Association. Mr. Graham is admitted to practice before state and district courts in Louisiana and Tennessee.
A shining moment for Mr. Graham came when he assisted his first client to secure incorporation papers so that he could legally operate his new business. Another case involved assisting an individual expunge his record in order to obtain gainful employment to support his family. Due to an existing record that was no longer relevant but still on file, he had been denied employment. Cases like this are especially important to Mr. Graham.
When he’s not in the office, you can find James spending time with friends on the tennis courts (he has a pretty mean backhand), or curled up with family watching the latest blockbuster.
