A. James Artiano


With over 35 years experience as an attorney, A. James Artiano specializes in business and transactional law.

Jim primarily works with entrepreneurs and small business owners — across nearly every aspect of transactional law. He helps clients in virtually every stage of the business cycle, from setting up a corporation and development of the company to representing his clients in their business deals. Jim also advises clients in buying and selling companies as well as estate planning issues.

His clients know that Jim “has their back” and is always looking out for their best interests. They appreciate his responsiveness and that they receive comprehensive value for their money.

As part of giving back to the community, Jim participates in a “free legal” day at the local branch court, where he and other lawyers of the firm give free legal advice to those who cannot afford it.

In his spare time, Jim enjoys attempting to perfect his golf game and spending time with his grandchildren.
