Attorney Profile

james-wingfieldJames A. Wingfield, Esq.

James Wingfield graduated from Northeastern University School of Law with a Juris Doctor degree and the University of Massachusetts with a Bachelor of Arts degree.

While in law school Mr. Wingfield held several internships including work as a judicial intern with the Honorable Joseph L. Tauro of United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts;  a small litigation and business law firm; with the legal department of a Fortune 500 Corporation; and as a student prosecutor with the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office.  This varied background prepared Mr. Wingfield for the variety of legal challenges and legal perspectives facing attorneys today.

Upon graduating from the Northeastern University School of Law, Mr. Wingfield accepted his first position as a litigation associate with Gillis & Bikofsky, P.C., a small litigation-boutique firm in Newton, Massachusetts.  Mr. Wingfield’s practice at Gillis & Bikofsky focused on civil litigation, criminal defense and corporate law.

Mr. Wingfield next spent five years practicing as an associate with Worcester, Massachusetts’s largest firm, Mirick, O’Connell, DeMallie & Lougee, LLP, as an associate in the bankruptcy and commercial litigation departments.  Mr. Wingfield’s practice was unique in the firm, as he represented large and small commercial creditors in both civil litigation, commercial loan  restructures and workouts and bankruptcy proceedings.  In addition to his representation of commercial creditors, a large portion of his practice was devoted to representation of Chapter 7 trustees in a wide variety of bankruptcy matters, including asset administration and recovery litigation and claims administration.

This varied background in civil litigation, creditor representation in and out of bankruptcy and representation of Chapter 7 trustees gave Mr. Wingfield a unique perspective in his representation of debtors in consumer and small business bankruptcy matters.  Today Mr. Wingfield’s practice primarily focuses on representation of individuals, families and small businesses struggling with debt both in bankruptcy, state and federal court litigation and in alternative resolution methods, such as loan modification agreements.
