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

Stevin is by far the best Lawyer that I have encountered. He is professional, knowledgeable, and very patient. I have lived out of the country for the past 5 years and anytime I needed legal assistance he has always been there for me as if I was next door. I would strongly recommend Stevin Groth no matter what the circumstances are. His dedication and attention to detail is what’s appreciated the most. Thanks for all that you have done and you will continue to do for me.


Stevin was very professional and got me the best possible outcome for my case. I would recommend him to anybody that is looking for a great quality lawyer.


I had the pleasure of working with Stevin Groth on a case. He went above and beyond what I expected. I expected the worst and he fought for me way better than anyone would have. Will use again if needed. Cannot express my gratitude enough. Thank you.
