A native of Western New York, I moved to Seattle after graduating from law school and instantly became enamored by the area’s natural beauty, outdoor activities, and diverse people. After 17 memorable years in the PNW, I'm happy to be back home in Buffalo, NY. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, working on my home, cooking, trying new restaurants and wineries, being outdoors, traveling beyond and volunteering in my community.

I have over 10 years’ experience representing condominium and homeowner associations throughout Washington, both in the boardroom and in the courtroom. I have worked with clients to successfully resolve hundreds of disputes around property rights, corporate governance, assessments, fair housing, amendments to covenants/CC&R’s, landlord/tenant issues, and purchasing and selling residential real estate.

I also have over 15 years’ experience in the restaurant industry that ignited my passion for food and wine, and I bring that same passion to small businesses in the beverage industry; providing legal advice around licensing and regulatory compliance, business formation, trademark, and real estate.

Bar Memberships: New York (2022), Washington State Bar Association (2004).

Owner-Property Management Issue
William was indispensable in working to resolve an issue with the former property managers of a rental property I own. He was communicative, patient, and thorough in his analysis of local housing laws. I would not hesitate to hire William for any future legal real estate needs.

Very happy with my experience
I have used William's assistance with some issues that I had with our landlord and drafting and reviewing a lease agreement for a new place. William is very professional and knowledgeable, he made sure that I understand my options, suggested action items based on his experience, and ensure that my key objectives are met. I am very happy with William and strongly recommend his services.

A complicated agreement
Mr. Justyk helped us with a complicated rental/loan agreement. We are lending money to a friend to remodel a garage into an ADU and then we are renting the unit back in exchange for repayment of the loan. Mr. Justyk determined what documents we needed and how to go about getting them recorded. Both parties were very pleased with the results.

Mr. Justyk Kept Us Out of Court
My wife and I were faced with a very frustrating landlord-tenant matter. Mr. Justyk was able to help us come to a successful settlement agreement in our favor and ensure that the other party followed through with the agreement. Without Mr. Justyk's thorough understanding of the Washington Landlord-Tenant law and excellent legal guidance we would have been hard pressed to achieve such a successful outcome.

Highly recommended!
I was having an issue with my previous landlord when I moved cross country, and William was the only lawyer who was willing to listen to me, offer advice and help me out. My situation was taken care of with William's knowledge and help, and I would definitely hire him again if I ever have another situation that he could help me out with!

Hired for Landlord-Tenant issue
William was a huge asset to us as we navigated a challenging Landlord-Tenant issue, he was quick to respond to our emails and had better rates than other attorney's we reached out too. With William's council we were able to successfully exit the situation with a full return of our deposit and without any further obligations or legal issues.
