Justin Allen Hill

About me

Justin was born and raised in the small town of Burkburnett, Texas to a school teach Mother and high school football coach Father. After graduating from Burkburnett High School, he received his B.B.A. in Management magna cum laude from Texas A&M University. While at Texas A&M, Justin was awarded multiple academic scholarships and awards. He was active in student organizations, including serving as a Fish Camp Counselor and an opinion columnist for the Texas A&M student newspaper, The Battallion.


After graduating from Texas A&M University, Justin attended Baylor Law School on an academic scholarship. Justin graduated from Baylor Law School cum laude. At Baylor Law School, Justin was elected by his peers to serve as the Editor-in-Chief of the Baylor Law Review for a one year term. As Editor-in-Chief, Justin was responsible for overseeing the publication of the Baylor Law Review for one full academic year. His comment entitled The Quagmire of Personal Notification: When Is a Party Sufficiently Notified to Trigger the Motion for Rehearing Timetables Under the APA?, 58 Baylor L. Rev. 525 (2006) was published in the Baylor Law Review. Justin was also a member of the Order of the Barristers, the Baylor Law School Advocacy Team, and was picked as a top ten speaker in the Baylor Law School moot court competition.


In 2007, Justin joined the Watts Guerra Craft LLP’s San Antonio office. He was named partner at the end of his first year with the firm. Justin has worked all aspects of case investigation, case intake and trial preparation while at the firm.  Importantly, he has been a member of many trial teams in which the cases settled on the eve of trial or went to jury verdict. In August 2008, Justin tried a wrongful death case in Guadalupe County, Texas against a well-known local defendant. After a week long trial, the jury found for the plaintiffs. Along with his work prosecuting lawsuits, Justin has spoken at conferences across the State of Texas on a variety of legal topics. In addition to speaking, he has authored papers discussing automotive product liability, case investigation, joint theories of liability, and trucking (18-wheeler) litigation that have been presented at multiple continuing legal education programs.


Justin maintains a national practice in the areas of personal injury litigation, commercial and business litigation, personal injury caused by drunk drivers, injury and damages caused by 18-wheeler trucks, products liability, pharmaceutical drug litigation, bus accident litigation, oil & gas issues, and wrongful death issues. He is licensed to practice in the state courts of Texas, and the United Sates District Courts for the Southern, Eastern and Western Districts of Texas. Justin is a member of the San Antonio Bar Association, the San Antonio Trial Lawyers Association, the Houston Trial Lawyers Association, the Oil and Gas Section of the State Bar of Texas, the Texas Trial Lawyers Association (TTLA), and the Attorneys Information Exchange Group (AIEG). Also, in and out of the office, Justin is an advocate for those who have been injured or lost loved ones as a result of a drunk driver, and he is an active supporter and participant in the activities of the South Texas chapter of the Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
