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.

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.

Justin is a good lawyer, prompt and attentive to his cases. We are on opposing sides in personal injury work, but I enjoy the challenge he brings to the table. Justin's practice is NKY area wide, so he is no stranger to the courts, trying both civil and criminal cases. I confidently recommend Justin to be your next lawyer.

Justin is not intimidated by taking a case to trial, but understands the importance of compromise if it is in your best interest. Overall, I believe you will be more than satisfied with Justin’s work.
