As a former prosecutor I have handled nearly 5,000 criminal cases ranging from Shoplifting to Murder.  I have extensive trial experience having tried nearly 40 violent criminal jury trials over the past 11 years.  I know how the system works and I know how the prosecution thinks.  I was a strong advocate for victims when I was a prosecutor and I am just as strong an advocate for my clients who have been charged with a crime.  I am a problem solver and want to help you with your legal problem. 

When you are charged with a crime, it can be a scary time.  Your freedom can be at stake and much more.  You will be scared, worried, and just plain stressed.  That is where my experience and guidance can come to the rescue.  I see my job as that of a problem solver.  I will take on the case and take on the system.  I will fight side by side with you to make sure that you do not become a statistic.  At The Justis Law Firm, every client is treated with respect and every client gets personl attention.  I have a saying, "Delivering Justice One Client at a Time" and I really do my best to live up to that motto.

When you become a client, you will get the same high level of treatment and attention that I give to all of my clients.  I make a promise to be available for questions and strive to communicate on a regular basis with my clients.  I take pride in doing a good job and want to work hard for you and get you the best possible result.

A native of New Jersey, I attended The Citadel, graduating in 1990 with a Business Administration Degree.  After working in the corporate world for 14 years I decided that was not for me.  I wanted to work in a job where I could help other people.  I attended law school and obtained my law degree.  I started interning for the 1st Circuit Solicitor's Office while I was in law school.  Being able to get some real experience working alongside of seasoned prosecutors allowed me to learn the ropes and prepare myself for life after law school.  I graduated in 2007 from The Charleston School of Law and earned the Arthur G. Howe Trial Advocacy Award at graduation.  I took and passed the Bar Exm and began an 11 year stint as a criminal prosecutor.

As a prosecutor I handled over 5,000 criminal cases including every type of crime imaginable.  From high-profile murder cases to run of the mill shoplifting cases, I honed my trial skills.  I also learned how the criminal justice system works.  I saw how important it was for a criminal defendant to have good representation.  I decided I wanted to do everything I could to make sure the system was fair for all people, not just those who had money or connections.

I am an Eagle Scout and a current Scoutmaster for a Boy Scout troop in Summerville where I reside with my wife, son, and pet German Shepherd.  I am an avid hiker and recently completed a nearly 2,200 mile thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail before opening my law practice.  The dedication, knowledge, and persistence that I used to hike from Georgia to Maine in the winter and spring is the same type of determination I will bring to your case. I do not back down from a challenge.

Assisted with Traffic Court while Stationed 347 miles away.
Mr. Justis is one of the best attorneys in the lowcountry area! He made his professional knowledge of the court system easy to comprehend. This attorney is consistent and efficient in all areas. He worked my case for about 2 weeks and gave me every time there was an update until it was dismissed. You won’t regret contacting him!

Excellent Trial Attorney
Glenn took on my case and worked hard to make sure I had the best possible defense. I had a lot riding on getting a favorable outcome and thanks to Glenn and his skill we were able to Coe out on top at a jury trial and I was acquitted. Glenn has a tremendous amount of experience as a trial lawyer and used his skills as a former prosecutor to win.

Summerville Attorney Glenn Justis Will Fight for YOU!
Contacted Glenn Justis for a consultation concerning a traffic ticket from a SC State Trooper. I felt the charge was not deserved on my part based on the environmental and conditional circumstances at this time, rendering any evidence that may have been gathered false. Glenn was respectful and listened to me as his client, was very responsive to all my inquires, kept me informed in real time as to the court case status and my particular case ended in my favor due to his outstanding dedication and perseverance!

Doing a Will in SC is complicated. I tried to do it myself and gave up. Hired Attorney Justis and very glad I did. Glenn is a great family man, an Eagle Scout, a Scout Master and a highly educated Attorney. He cares and loves complicated cases.

Excellent Attorney
Mr Justis represented our son in a criminal case. He was very honest in the beginning and helped to understand all of the possible outcomes, not just telling us what we wanted to hear. His experience as a prosecutor was very valuable, and provided us with a unique perspective. He was able to obtain the best possible outcome in our case. During that time he was extremely communicative. While I certainly hope to not need his services again, he would absolutely be the first person I would consult if the situation called for an attorney.

Wonderful experience
Glenn did a wonderful job getting my husbands traffic ticket from a car accident dismissed. He was confident from day one that he could get it dismissed (we were facing 4 points), and he absolutely delivered. He was friendly and professional. Highly recommend

Life changing
My experience was amazing. He found the time to meet with me around my schedule. He took the time to listen to me when no one else would. With his help he has made our household and life so much more convenient.

Great to work with
Glenn met with us on a Sunday as that was the only time we were all free. He explained everything to us about our case, and explained what he could do for us, how long it might take and the different outcomes we might expect. He got us results from the DMV that we had tried for 2 months to get on our own and for a reasonable fee. I would definitely recommend him and use him again.
