James Creedon – Of Counsel

Driven by Creativity

The best parts of humanity show themselves when we innovate, and my job is to provide the tools to bring ideas to life. Whether it is a unique novel, a great new craft beer, or a rocket engine, I want to learn everything about it and be an essential part of your team.

I believe passionately in the power of ideas. Ideas challenge and push people to test limits, ultimately leading to change that betters lives. Ranger School, the New York City marathon, jumping out of planes — I have always pushed past boundaries, and I bring that same drive to my chosen career.

Dedicated to Service

My entire focus as an attorney is to help you build your business and contribute to your success.  My commitment is to resolve conflicts and keep the emphasis on collaboration, fully aware that today’s competition may be tomorrow’s partnership.  When litigation does arise, I am dedicated to finding reasonable and mutually beneficial results, while zealously representing your business and your interests.

I have served in the United States Army for eight years as an officer in Information Operations, the Judge Advocate General’s Corps and the Infantry.  I am a graduate of the U.S. Army Airborne, Air Assault, and Ranger Schools, and I hold an active security clearance.

I worked with Kathy before she struck out on her own. She is professional, has a positive attitude and really focuses on making sure her clients have a great experience and get the right kind of information before it’s needed.
