James Brammer has made the Upstate his home since 2013, after more than twenty years of practicing law in Indiana and Michigan. He joined the Spartanburg office of Guest and Brady in 2022 as a real estate attorney. A teacher at heart, James enjoys helping clients understand and navigate the complexities that can accompany a real estate transaction. James counsels and advises each client so carefully and thoroughly that there can be no doubt that the client’s best interests are always his highest priority.

When not enjoying the company of colleagues and clients, James enjoys spending time with his wife, Deanna, and their two Doodles, Moxie and Marlee. You might also find James in the garden, traveling with Deanna to new destinations, or following his favorite sport, baseball.

James is very active in the ministries of Cornerstone Baptist Church, helping in as many ways as possible from being a part of the church’s music ministry to serving as a deacon.
