Review Justin Sanders

About Me

I am a lifelong resident of Kenton County. My wife Meredith and I live in Fort Wright with our two children. I grew up in Covington, in the same house on Russell Street that now serves as the office of The Sanders Law Firm.  I attended Summit Country Day School in Cincinnati, for grades K through 12, and graduated in 1995. 

I attended The University of Chicago, before tranferring to the University of Kentucky, where I was a member of the Wildcats varsity baseball team.  I was named to the Southeastern Conference Academic Honor Roll as a pitcher at UK and earned my B.A. degree, Summa Cum Laude, in Political Science.  I then earned my Juris Doctor degree, Cum Laude, from the Pepperdine University School of Law, in California. 

Since graduating from law school, I have practiced law with my family's firm. Justin’s practice focus is litigation, with an emphasis on personal injury, products liability, criminal defense, family, and business law.

I also served as a felony prosecutor in the Kenton Commonwealth's Attorney's Office. In that role, I successfully prosecuted many different kinds of criminals, including burglars, fugitives from justice, thieves, child abusers, and murderers. I obtainedthe first conviction in Kentucky history for felony torture of a domestic animal.

I enjoy being active in my community and have a strong commitment to public service.  I coach youth sports and volunteer for various activities at my children’s schools.  I am on the Board of Directors of the Northern Kentucky Forum, a non-partisan, volunteer organization focused on civic engagement and civil discussions of current national topics and issues and how they play out on the local, Northern Kentucky stage.  I also helped start the A.J. Cohen Memorial Fund, a charity dedicated to educating high school and college students about fire safety and prevention.

 I have spent a total of twelve years as a volunteer with the American Youth Foundation (“AYF”), serving as a counselor and staff member at the organization’s annual National Leadership Conference in Shelby, Michigan.  The AYF teaches and fosters leadership skills in young adults, so that they may make a positive impact in their own communities. I am a graduate of the AYF’s leadership program and was named a Mentor for the Leadership Conference’s class of 2003.

I am a member of the Campbell County Game and Fish Protective Association.  The purposes of that organization include promoting conservation of Kentucky’s wildlife, forests, streams, and other natural resources; teaching and promoting safe firearms handling and skills; and facilitating family-oriented recreational activities for members and their guests.
