    I have litigated against David in maritime cases. He is highly professional, and very good at what he does. I recall one case where he got the entire thing dismissed from federal court on jurisdictional grounds. It was a stinging defeat for me, but a great victory for him. He was remarkably humble about his win--which was professionally done. I highly recommend him.sparks

    Mr. James' impressive representation of a mariner in an admiralty-related administrative proceeding demonstrated his in-depth knowledge of a complex body of law. His excellent communication skills, both oral and written, garnered his client a significantly reduced penalty.
