James has been an outstanding advocate for clients’ rights ever since he was a little boy. His father was an attorney and he grew up appreciating, respecting, and admiring how a good lawyer can truly help people—not only with their legal issues, but also by providing them with support during their times of need.
James became the Assistant State’s Attorney for Prince George’s County in 1972. After spending six years in this position, he wound up spending an additional eleven years as the Assistant Public Defender for Prince George’s County (1978 – 1989), eight of which he spent as the Chief Trial Attorney for the Juvenile Division.
This period of James’ life was extremely busy. In addition to holding the above positions, in 1978, his steady drive and dedication to the community led him to open the Law Offices of James S. Nickelsporn, P.C. (1978 – Present), as well as devote his time to the Prince George’s Community College as an instructor of business management (1978 – Present), which he still continues to do.
