Justin grew up listening to courtroom tales told by his grandfather, a Helena, Montana defense attorney. Inspired by those stories, he became a Washington State licensed lawyer in 2012. While practicing he felt there was a better way for many to experience the family law system, which led him to launch Truce Law. Justin focuses on making the divorce process as simple as possible, by giving clients the tools they need to find an agreed solution. He is a collaboratively trained attorney as well as a certified mediator and was recently named to Super Lawyers Rising Stars list.
Justin graduated from the Seattle University School of Law as a Washington State Scholar, a scholarship awarded to the top 1% of the applicant pool. Prior to law school, he earned an undergraduate degree in finance and marketing from the University of Washington. For fun, he recently completed a year long certificate program at the UW in Popular Fiction Writing.
Justin volunteers time as a mediator with the Snohomish County Dispute Resolution Center and in the Arlington small claims court. He's also provided legal services at the Union Gospel Mission's legal clinic and through the Washington State Bar Association's Moderate Means Program.
