James Heston, Principal Attorney
James was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. James graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 1988 with a degree in business administration, specializing in finance. James then went on to attend and graduate from Pepperdine University School of Law in Malibu, California. While in law school, James interned for both a federal bankruptcy judge in Los Angeles and the Texas Supreme Court.
After graduating from Pepperdine, James moved to Houston and founded The Heston Law Firm, a consumer law firm concentrating in bankruptcy.
James is a proud member of both the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys and the Houston Association of Debtor’s Attorneys and the Bankruptcy Law Sections of both the American Bar Association and the Texas Bar.
In 2006, James partnered with Daniel Ciment and expanded the focus of the firm from just bankruptcy law to its current, much broader orientation of debt relief law. In his career as a debt relief lawyer, James has helped over 10,000 Texans resolve their debts either through bankruptcy, debt settlement, or debt lawsuit defense.
