James Ridgway

James has strong ties with the community, as his family has lived in Saskatoon for three generations. After high school, he moved to Vancouver, B.C. for a year before spending 4 years in Southern California to earn his Bachelor of Arts.

James returned to Saskatoon after earning his degree, and ran a computer consulting and programming business for several years providing services to small businesses including several law offices.  It was through his association with the lawyers that he developed an interest in the practise of law, and he decided to return to university to get his law degree. His practical experience in operating a small business is an asset in advising clients in starting and operating a small business.
