SPOTLIGHT ON: MIRANDA JAMES
In the spirit of Spring, this month we spotlight our newest attorney, Miranda James, as we continue to celebrate our 10th year. Get to know Miranda better below or by clicking here for more information about her practice.
Backstory: I grew up along the east coast in North Carolina and Maryland and began my legal career in Philadelphia, PA. I have been in Richmond, VA for about 12 years. I played lacrosse at THE Ohio State University and remain an incredibly huge Buckeye fan – Go Bucks!
When I was a kid I wanted to be . . . a profiler for the FBI (Clarice Starling)
Worst job I ever had: Working at Blockbuster (when that was a thing) on a Friday night with the vultures swarming around for the newest release.
Coolest thing I’ve ever done: Traveled throughout Europe for 3 months.
Favorite movie: Count of Monte Cristo (also book - ultimate revenge story)
Favorite artist: oddly obsessed with Elvis - young Elvis
Favorite superhero: Deadpool
Famous person I’d like to meet: Michael Jordan
If I wasn’t doing this, I’d rather be . . . By the beach.
My favorite/happy place is . . . Wrightsville Beach, NC
Best advice I’ve ever received: Be happy.
Inside scoop: Miranda totally undersells the “I played lacrosse in college” backstory as she was the first All-American in the history of the Ohio State women’s lacrosse program. Another person who always seems to carry a smile, Miranda’s exuberance and good nature always bring up the mood. If you’re looking for her in the office, just follow the aroma of the birthday cake-scented candle from her office, which seems to make everyone hungry.
