Settled a personal injury claim for my family after car accident
Justin is a very competent attorney. He successfully settled a car accident claim for my family and did a good job setting expectations and communicating with us during the process.

Justin Bailey's Performance As An Attorney
Several years ago, I was going through a divorce. I had initially hired another attorney to work on my case. I was concerned about the other attorney's divorce strategy. I hire Justin to confidentially review my case for me. Justin provided me with an excellent divorce strategy, which I implemented thanks to Justin's advice. I am very thankful that I hired Justin to assist me.
