About James


Bio

Licensed to practice law in 1979, I have tried many criminal and juvenile cases, and even mental commitment hearings, among others. Advising working police officers and police departments has shown me both sides of criminal law. My law enforcement experience includes direct supervision, operational planning, canine patrol, firearms and ammunition, training, and advising a police department, including direct on-street legal advice for officers, and as judge in a municipal ordinance...

Licensed to practice law in 1979, I have tried many criminal and juvenile cases, and even mental commitment hearings, among others. Advising working police officers and police departments has shown me both sides of criminal law. My law enforcement experience includes direct supervision, operational planning, canine patrol, firearms and ammunition, training, and advising a police department, including direct on-street legal advice for officers, and as judge in a municipal ordinance court.

I have trained law enforcement and security officers for the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway and the Federal Aviation Administration, and authored the FAA's post-9/11 report to congress for the busiest air traffic control center in the nation, a top terrorist target. I have taught college-level criminal justice courses, three years online and more than three years in class, with a great deal of positive student response. Students have commented that they learn difficult material more easily because I use examples from personal experience,current issues in the news, and carefully-selected videos. Many say that a varied real-world point of view brings textbook and other material to life.

Criminal Justice

With a JD degree, I have practiced law in the Chicago area for 34 years, both defending criminal cases and representing and training police. I also served in law enforcement in operations, planning and supervision. I performed police and security supervision and training for the FAA and the BNSF Railway, among others, and I authored the FAA's mandated post 9/11 report to Congress for the country's busiest air traffic control center. Both my criminal justice and teaching experience have been broad and varied for a real-world understanding of criminal justice issues.
