About James Henry

I’m James Henry Bartolomei.

I call West Little Rock home. I’m running to be your next Representative for Arkansas District 78. Whether you’re a Republican, Democrat, or Independent, I’m honored to have the opportunity to earn your trust, your respect, and your vote.  Every Arkansan deserves representation and leadership in our legislature guided by transparency, accountability, and our shared values. We need to have balance and moderation in government, not one-party rule controlled by a MAGA Extremist Agenda which currently spends half the time creating solutions to problems that don’t exist and the other half assaulting our freedoms. Your vote for me can stop this extremism.

Our lawmakers ought to know the Constitution, the law & actually read the bills before voting.

I have working experience with all three branches of government. My opponent sells car insurance and blindly supports the MAGA Extremist Agenda. I first received my law license in our great state of Arkansas and have nearly two decades of experience representing people and small businesses in court. Currently, I practice law at the Duncan Firm in Little Rock. I am also licensed in Florida, California, New York, Connecticut, DC, numerous federal courts, and the United States Supreme Court.

During college, I served as an intern for US Senator Joe Lieberman, an ardent supporter of Israel, and member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.  I was also a Press Office intern at the White House for the Clinton Administration.  While studying at Suffolk University Law School, I earned a public interest fellowship grant to serve in the US House of Representatives for the Second Congressional District of Arkansas and Little Rock’s own Congressman Vic Snyder.  There, I researched and wrote about Constitutional issues.  I witnessed firsthand the power of reaching across the aisle and finding compromise. We need more of that, and less trying to destroy the other side.

However, the most important blessing was meeting my wife, Suzanne Duncan, a staffer for US Senator Mark Pryor.

I’ve been married to Suzanne, a 5th generation Arkansan, for 20 years this July 2024. I am a father to Grace (9) and Henry (6).

I promise to defend your family like I defend my own. I pledge to represent you like I defend my clients in court.

I’m ready to serve you and your family on day one:

  • Committed Christian and attend Fellowship Bible Church
  • 19 years as a practicing Attorney, Of Counsel at Duncan Firm, PA
  • Helped secure $7 billion in settlements and verdicts for people, small businesses, copyright owners, farmers, police officers, teachers and students
  • Advocate for transparency, restoring checks and balances, the rule of law, protecting your freedoms, and integrity in Government
  • Licensed to practice law in 6 states, numerous federal courts, and U.S. Supreme Court
  • Champion for public education and fairness and accountability in all our schools
  • Graduate of American University (BA International Studies); law degree at Suffolk University
  • Son of two public school teachers
  • Public Interest Fellowship grant with Arkansas Congressman Vic Snyder
  • Proud husband to Suzanne Duncan and father to Henry, Grace, two dogs, Dash and Duffy, two cats, Scarlett and Mia, and a bearded dragon, Spike

My values are grounded in fighting to protect your freedom, health, wealth and safety. I know we share those values, and I’d be honored to earn your vote this November.

Let’s Put Arkansas First!
