James Graham earned his J.D. from Hofstra University in 1995 after receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance, Summa Cum Laude from Long Island University, CW Post, where he also won the annual Dean’s Award for Finance two years in a row. Mr. Graham joined the Law Offices of Robert C. Mangi in 1997, becoming a partner in 2007, resulting in the creation of Mangi & Graham, LLP. For the past 19 years, Mr. Graham has restricted his practice to matrimonial and family law as a family lawyer in Long Island. He is an active member of the Matrimonial Committee of the Nassau County Bar Association and is on the Steering Committee of the Family Law and Procedures Committee of the Nassau County Bar Association. Mr. Graham has also been invited to be a Barrister with the prestigious New York Family Law American Inn of Court.
Jim’s background in finance has served the firm well in spousal and child support matters, as well as in complex divorce cases where business evaluations, pension analysis, and investigation of tax return and financial statements are necessary to investigate hidden incomes are often necessary to ensure our clients receive all they are entitled to. Because of his knowledge, experience, and stature in the field of matrimonial and family law, Jim spoke at the Manhattan Chapter of the Columbian Lawyer’s Association on the topic of no-fault divorce when that law was passed in 2010. He has also been regularly called upon to lecture at continuing legal education seminars sponsored by the Family Law and Procedures Committee of the Nassau County Bar Association. In 2013, Mr. Graham presented such a seminar on the topic of fair hearings involving child abuse and neglect proceedings with the New York State Department of Social Services from the content of the initial written contact with the Department of Social Services through conducting the actual hearing itself. In 2014, Jim designed and presented a seminar on child support modification proceedings with the participation of four Support Magistrates from Nassau Family Court. In 2015, Jim lectured on the issues of relocation and modification of child custody for the Nassau County Bar Association as well as a presentation for the New York Family Law American Inn of Court on the issue of Lincoln Hearings, including the procedures and circumstances around the court questioning young children. Mr. Graham is currently scheduled to participate in two continuing legal education programs in 2016 about ethical and evidentiary issues involved in the discovery and use of social media in matrimonial and family law proceedings.
