James Long


James Long's Headshot

A former naval officer, James Long has a deep-rooted commitment to plaintiffs’ rights that goes beyond his professional obligations. As a trial lawyer, he handles complex cases involving catastrophic personal injury, no matter how challenging the circumstances.

“I’ve been on the other side representing the interests of the world’s largest corporations where legal battles are merely a line item in the budget, just a cost of doing business. But for our team at Arnold & Itkin, it’s deeply personal. It’s not just about settlements or verdicts; it’s about standing up for what’s right and making a tangible difference in the lives of the people we serve—no matter what.”


In his first role as an attorney, James took up a position at an internationally renowned law firm. There, he developed an effective approach to advocacy litigating on behalf of corporate clients; eventually, he was made a partner. But after several years representing corporate interests, James realized his calling was fighting for individuals. So, he sought out a high-achieving trial law firm that would make the best use of his litigation experience. He found Arnold & Itkin.

The eldest of six siblings, James grew up in Newnan, Georgia, and attended the United States Naval Academy. After serving as an officer, he worked in China and became fluent in Mandarin. James then earned a law degree at Tulane Law School, where he got his first taste of trial law; he also interned for the Honorable Lee Rosenthal and Honorable Eldon E. Fallon.

Now a Texas resident, James spends time with his wife and children and enjoys settling into the local community.

He is licensed to practice in Texas and New York.
