Justin is an experienced litigator. He spent much of the first decade of his legal career representing large corporations in a wide variety of disputes. It was his experience representing regular people and small businesses, however, that helped him discover his passion for making the court system a level playing field. With that in mind, he decided to partner with Marco to make sure that those in need of top-notch representation are able to get it.
Justin has successfully represented clients in cases ranging from auto accidents to antitrust. He regularly appears in trial and appellate courts throughout Pennsylvania and other jurisdictions. His practice currently focuses on business disputes, personal injury claims, civil rights, and appeals. He also has experience in advising new businesses and other transactional matters.
Over the past several years, Justin has developed a significant criminal defense practice. He has represented clients facing the most serious charges at trial, on direct appeal, and with Post-Conviction Relief Act claims. This well-rounded practice has given him an understanding of how best to prepare and present defenses to protect a client’s rights.
Justin is active in the community. He serves on several boards and as an elected committee person for his voting precinct. In addition to his practice, he is an adjunct professor at Duquesne University School of Law and has presented at a number of continuing education seminars. He is also currently serving a three-year term on Pennsylvania Disciplinary Board’s Hearing Committee.
