Session: Main Street Digital

Jim Fausone is the founding partner of Fausone Bohn, LLP and its wholly owned Legal Help For Veterans, PLLC. Jim concentrates his practice in business matters, municipal representation, veterans disability law and environmental regulation.

Jim was an early adopter of digital marketing seeing the value it could bring to the niche service of providing legal assistance to veterans seeking disability benefits from the federal government but overwhelmed by the VA bureaucracy. For over two decades, his national veterans practice has expanded its use of multiple channels and platforms to reach veterans where they live and consume content from podcasts, videos, blogs, websites, email blasts, paid search, and social media.

Jim practiced with a large law firm before withdrawing from the partnership to become President of a multi-million dollar industrial services, waste transportation and environmental contracting company. He understands entrepreneurs as he has started multiple businesses.

He is a magna cum laude graduate from Gonzaga University Law School and received his undergraduate degrees in environmental engineering and oceanography from the University of Michigan.

Jim is sought out by business owners and municipal leaders alike for this legal advice which is solid and practical. He has a deep commitment to the community. He has actively participated in numerous civic boards, including University of Michigan College of Engineering, Michigan Military and Veterans Hall of Honor, Center for Digital Engagement, DWSD Board of Water Commissioners, Schoolcraft College, Canton Public Library, Canton Community Foundation and Livonia Chamber of Commerce.

Jim's commitment to veteran causes is well known and he hosts the annual Veterans Summit for the Canton Community Foundation. Jim and Brig. General Carol Ann Fausone (ret) have written multiple books for veterans including how to get gain admission to military academy.

Jim supports University of Michigan with scholarships at the College of Engineering and the School of Nursing and has received its prestigious Hermelin Award Fundraising Volunteer Leadership in 2019. At Schoolcraft College, where he sits on the Foundation board, he received an Honorary Associates Degree in Humanities for his support and work for the College.

Guilty pleasures include kayaking on Huron River or in Estero Bay, Florida
