About me

Justin's practice is devoted to making a positive impact on the clients he serves.  Focusing on the areas of commercial and residential real estate, along with general business transactions, Justin has obtained successful results for individuals and business owners at the negotiation table and in the courtroom. With additional background in trademarks, copyrights, and the creative arts, Justin also works with business owners to develop and protect their brands. Justin firmly believes that a sound legal strategy begins with understanding each individual client's background and needs, and then tailoring a plan of action specifically to that client's goals.
