About James

James has always been a go getter, whether in court, working for the Salvation Army, or the Red Cross.  He has set his standards high, It's simply who he is.  During his 15 years in the Army Corps of Engineers as an Officer, they had a saying, "Essay Ons" or "Let Us Try".  That motto has shaped how he applies himself in life.

If there is a challenge, let us work together to overcome it. 

In his position as a Judge for Philadelphia Courts, he spent over 35 years ruling on what was right. 

He has a history of holding public interest close to heart.  In both occupations, he has made important decisions. Those as a Judge were different, but they were just as significant, if not more. They effected the lives of citizens of Philadelphia.
