James is a recent (May 2020) graduate from the University of Toledo College of law. He grew up in Canada before returning to the states and joining the United States Coast Guard. James served in the U.S. Coast Guard for seven years before an injury led to his separation from the service. During this period of service, he received the Coast Guard Meritorious Service Medal.  

Since being discharged, James opened three businesses while furthering his education to give him the skills and knowledge to better help others. This led James to law school. 

During law school, James worked in the school’s civil advocacy clinic writing and updating wills and trusts, advising clients on estate issues, assisting clients in filing for citizenship, assisting with small claims, and writing articles and bylaws for business formation. He also worked at the City of Toledo Law Department conducting research and writing to support employment, tax and collections, constitutional, tort, risk management, criminal and civil issues, as well as proofreading, editing and drafting documents for department heads.

James has received his PPA certificate which allows him to practice law in Ohio. This has afforded him the opportunity to transition into the role of associate at Groth and Associates.


Words from our clients

Our experience with Attorney Stevin Groth was nothing short of life changing.
When we first contacted Mr. Groth, he gave us his cell phone number and we were able to directly contact him day or night. His knowledge of the Ohio judicial system was astounding. He handled all aspects of our case himself, never once handing off our case to jr. associates. Stevin had positive relationships with all the judges, district attorneys and court personal that we came in contact with. Stevin’s persuasive arguments on our son’s behalf cleared him of all charges. Because of Stevin’s abilities, our son is able to move forward with his life without the stigma of a criminal record. We could not recommend Stevin Groth more highly.


Dan is an amazing attorney. He had my divorce finalized in a short period of time. A lot quicker than I thought it was going to be and for that I’m thankful! Dan knew exactly what he was talking about. Any questions I had Dan, and his assistant, Michelle was glad to answer. The outcome of my divorce was exactly what I was hoping for.
