  • Edwin Stuart Booth

    I endorse Justin. He has an excellent reputation among attorneys and the judiciary. And he has the experience and talent to manage all aspects of a complicated divorce, which requires carefully handling a number of important factors. It is well-worth contacting him if you have a family law issue.

  • John Thomas Randall

    I endorse this lawyer. Justin is a lawyer that is aggressive and knows how to win. He is a zealous advocate that knows how to try a case. When many domestic lawyers send letter after letter Justin will have the other side in Court holding them accountable. I have had many cases against Justin and I would strongly endorse him as a trial attorney. He is good at what he does because he practices his craft everyday. A plus attorney.
