James E. Byrne (born ca.1954) is an Associate Justice of the district court in Chelsea, Massachusetts, and a former member of the Boston City Council, having held the District 3 seat from 1984 through 1993.
Byrne graduated from Boston Latin School in 1972, and went on to receive a bachelor's degree from Harvard University in 1976, and a law degree from Suffolk University in 1980. He was a founding partner of the law firm Byrne and Anderson LLP.
Byrne was first elected to the City Council in November 1983, representing District 3 (Dorchester). In 1990, Byrne initiated the proposal that abolished the Boston School Committee as elected positions. After being re-elected to four two-year terms on the City Council, Byrne did not seek re-election for the 1994–95 term; his seat was won by his chief-of-staff, Maureen Feeney, in the November 1993 election.
In December 2016, Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker nominated Byrne to the Chelsea District Court; his nomination was confirmed in February 2017.
