I was born and bred in Charlotte, and by watching my father’s law practice as I grew up, I learned how an attorney can serve clients in North Carolina thoughtfully and responsibly. Now, it is my pleasure and privilege to practice in the same firm and maintain the same approach in working with my clients.

In the core emphases of my practice, I have worked on hundreds of successful adoptions, represented dozens of homeowners associations (HOA) and private homeowners, and prepared hundreds of estate documents since I obtained my law license in 2014. I have also handled cases ranging from simple contract review to real property disputes, estates and guardianships, and lawsuits regarding breach of contract, defamation, fiduciary duty, and negligence. I have made appearances in Small Claims Court, District Court, Superior Court, and Business Court, as well as co-authoring briefs in North Carolina Court of Appeals and Supreme Court cases.

I love helping people understand what is in their best interests and counseling them on how to achieve it. Whether I am overseeing an adoption, participating in litigation, negotiating settlement compromises, or carefully wording agreements to avoid future conflicts, everything I do is tailored to the needs of the client. Outside of the office, I dabble in music, movies, and sports, and I prefer to laugh and swap stories with friends a couple of times per week. I attend Mercy Church, where I have been a member since 2015.

Client Reviews

What a great professional experience I have had working with Mr. Galvin! His straight-forward, honest approach has helped me both personally and professionally in many ways. He is always there when I need him.

I recently engaged the legal services of James Galvin, Esq., to assist me in a foreclosure case brought by a bank. He skillfully and thoughtfully negotiated a very successful conclusion with a nominal cash settlement of an otherwise considerable debt. I can thoroughly recommend the use of his...


James Galvin is the most honest and forthright attorney I ever met. He has been a pleasure to work with. If I ever need an attorney again, James will be my choice. I know he will work hard on your behalf to help resolve the matter to your best interest.
