Hon. James Stanton (Ret.)

Stanton LLP

Founding Partner of Stanton LLP; (ret.) Judge Dallas County, TX

As a former judge, James Stanton knows how to persuade judges and juries to find for his clients. As the founder of a law firm, he also knows that you want to focus on running your business, not your lawsuit, which is why choosing a trusted advocate to speak for you in court matters.

Over the course of his career as an attorney and judge, James has handled over 60 jury trials, 40 bench trials, and thousands of hearings—which is why clients turn to him when they need solutions to difficult problems.

Before founding Stanton LLP, James served as presiding judge of the 134th Judicial District Court in Dallas County, Texas, and practiced in the trial departments at Andrews Kurth LLP and Cozen O’Connor PC. He is board certified in Civil Trial Law and Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

James is an active member at The Grove Church where he sits on the Advisory Board and teaches the sixth grade Confirmation class. He also serves on the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees for Uplift Education, and his four children – Alexandra, Luke, Eric and Caroline – attend an Uplift School.
