About me


Justin’s practice focuses on civil litigation, commercial dispute resolution, and strategic legal counsel for businesses.  Justin has extensive experience in representing clients’ interests before courts and agencies and in providing practical, legal guidance and solutions to businesses. He has successfully tried cases in state courts, federal courts, and in front of arbitration panels. His clients have included large publically traded companies, foreign corporations, and closely held businesses, as well as individual entrepreneurs and investors.


 


Justin handles a broad variety of complex business litigation, including breach of contract, fraud, partnership disputes, minority shareholder oppression, covenants-not-to-compete, tortious interference, employment matters, and intellectual property disputes. He also represents clients in their dealings with state and federal agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Labor, the Texas Workforce Commission, and the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners.


 


In addition to his controversy practice, Justin advises clients on a number of contract and regulatory issues, including employment contracts, mergers and acquisitions, real estate transactions, and corporate formation.  He also serves as a mediator in civil lawsuits and as an arbitrator in legal fee disputes.


 


Prior to Strother Law Firm, Justin worked at one of the nation's most preeminent law firms, Vinson & Elkins, where his practice was focused on representing large companies in complex litigation.


 


Justin supports the arts in Houston by providing his services for a reduced rate or on a pro bono basis to Houston’s performing and visual artists.
