Justin is a Colorado native who graduated from J.K. Mullen High School and went on to attend The University of Colorado at Boulder. After graduating from CU he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and attended law school at the University of San Francisco.
After receiving his degree from law school he spent a year with the United States Depart of Justice in the Antitrust Division. During his time with the Department of Justice, Justin worked on complex nationwide cases which were prosecuted in Federal Court. While working with the Department of Justice, Justin’s desire to be in the courtroom increased and he ended up working for a reputable insurance defense firm in San Francisco. Justin spent fours practicing insurance defense in San Francisco and during that time successfully defended numerous cases through the discovery phase and trial. He also appeared before the California Court of Appeals.
In 2009 Justin felt that it was time to return to Colorado and joined The Ross-Shannon Law Firm, P.C. in December of that year. Justin’s practice focuses on representing insurance companies in first-party bad faith cases, insurance coverage issues, and defending insured parties in tort and contract matters. He has successfully tried cases to juries and in arbitration. He has also represented clients in the appellate process and has argued in front of the Colorado Court of Appeals.
In his time away from work, Justin enjoys spending time with his wife and three kids. Justin and his family also enjoy the outdoors and spend time hiking, camping and skiing.
