James is a solicitor partner in central London litigation law firm, Saunders Law. After decades of experience in criminal law, he now acts in the group litigation claim for the many families of the 96 who died in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster. He is also representing the Grenfell Tower fire victims and their families in the Grenfell Public Inquiry.
In 1970, with others, James started and practiced at the North Kensington Neighbourhood Law Centre. He was also part of the foundation of Via 30 years ago and has since then continuously served as a Via director.
James says: “Through the practice of criminal law, I have seen first-hand the hardship, misery, and death that addiction can bring, and it is a privilege to be part of an organisation that in its own quiet way helps so many people back from the brink.”
