Justin received his J.D. from Berkeley Law (Boalt Hall) in 2011 and his B.A. with distinction in Political Science from UC Berkeley in 2008.

As a law student, he was selected to compete in the American Association for Justice Trial Competition and the National Trial Competition on behalf of Berkeley Law.

After graduating from law school, Justin served the community as a Deputy Public Defender in Contra Costa County. There he represented clients in all aspects of their criminal cases and tried fourteen jury trials. In 2014, he brought his passion and trial experience to Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger to advocate for those who have suffered catastrophic injury and wrongful death.
