Banks Law Office
Banks Law Office

Northwest Lawyer


Hi, I'm James Banks

I founded Banks Law Office because I believe in a different way of representing people. Each of my clients has different priorities and I focus my representation on providing services uniquely tailored to each of my clients. Above all, I've learned that people need a lawyer that listens, that cares, and that works hard. That is my promise to every client. 

I will take the time to travel and meet you in a location that is convenient and comfortable for you. When we meet, I promise to treat you with respect and listen to your story. I am not a stuffy lawyer that sits behind a desk and interviews clients. My approach is different. I need to understand you as a person so that I can tell your story in a compelling way. Our relationship is based on mutual respect, and you can contact me anytime or any day to discuss your case.
