Professional Assistance with Book Manuscript
Mr. Sterling assisted with getting my book manuscript in an acceptable form for the publisher by helping locate and rewrite all instances of potential libel. Because of his promptness, expertise, and professionalism in this matter, the publisher accepted the manuscript on the next submission. This helped me move quickly to publication of the book. I am sincerely grateful for his assistance and would recommend him highly to anyone who has issues with scripts, manuscripts, or any verbiage requiring careful legal terminology.

Justin Provided Very Excellent Services
I was facing legal issues involving personal injury claims and also I wanted a court review of an administrative decision. Justin fully explained the complex legal issues involved and the legal process, including Petition for Writ of Mandamus and pursuing my personal injury claims to recover damages. He explained the legal issues involving my prior medical conditions, exacerbation of my pre-existing condition, and the requirement of legal and factual causation in my case. Justin helped along every step of the process and has made sure I am in the right hands. I highly recommend Justin and his business The Sterling Firm.

Legal Grind
I used Justin to read and correct some legal documents, he was very efficient and gave me great suggestions and advise. He asked me what I wanted to accomplish and did not tell me what he thought I should do. Great!!!

Attorney Justin Sterling is an IP Tiger!
Justin took care of a very serious issue for me and had my back the whole time. He is not afraid to take on a giant. I will be utilizing his expertise again in the future. He is very smart and knows the law well. He is a good listener and gets things done in a timely fashion.

Thorough job well done
Justin Sterling Ciecka reviewed a lease agreement for my organization. We needed someone with his background to look it over and make sure we were compliant with any issue around the rentals. He met with me and went over everything in detail, researched other options we hadn't considered and followed up with his comments and a proposal that included those options. My organization was thrilled with the thorough work that he did and voted to use his proposal. He is the sort of lawyer you want on your team if you want to have the job done right.
