Justin Lee Lawrence

About me

Justin L. Lawrence runs a thriving law firm that practices in the areas of personal injury, workers' compensation, social security disability and bankruptcy. Justin is a 2002 Cum Laude graduate of the University of Kentucky with Bachelor degrees in Accounting and Business Administration. While at the University of Kentucky, he was awarded the prestigious Woodson B. Gudgell scholarship. He earned his Juris Doctor degree from the Salmon P. Chase College of Law in 2005. In law school, he served as Vice President of the SBA and Justice of Phi Alpha Delta’s Hoffman Chapter. Justin was also honored with the Alex P. Hotchkiss Award for outstanding Chapter Justice, and the Hoffman Chapter was awarded the Stanley H. Kohn Award for best chapter. Justin founded his successful law firm in 2005.


Justin has years of experience in representing injured men and women in civil cases against insurance companies and large corporations. He has recently put a spotlight on some insurance companies’ abhorrent practice of delaying payments to the victims of drunk drivers.


Justin is on the Board of Governors for the Kentucky Justice Association, and is a member of the American Association for Justice, the Kentucky Bar Association, and the Northern Kentucky Bar Association. He continues to be active as a member of the Salmon P. Chase Inns of Court, and an alumni adviser to Phi Alpha Delta. He regularly practices in Kentucky and Ohio, and has also won awards in Pennsylvania and Indiana.


In addition to Justin’s professional memberships, he is active with the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati, which provides aid and support to individuals with Down Syndrome and their families. He is also an active member in the Florence Rotary and the Freemasons.


Justin lives in Ft. Wright, Kentucky with his wife Michelle, his son Gabriel, and his daughter Alyssa. He is an avid sports fan, runs, hikes, canoes, and enjoys spending time with his wife and children.
