After graduating from Bishop Moore High School, he attended the University of Central Florida where he earned a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Psychology. Justin discovered early on that he had a passion for the law as he began his legal career at one of Central Florida’s larger insurance defense law firms during his freshman year at the University of Central Florida. He began as a file clerk, working his way up to being a paralegal. Justin remained with that law firm until he began attending law school at Barry University School of Law.
While attending law school, Justin was an Editor on the Barry Law Review, earned book awards for highest achievement in the courses of Legal Research and Writing I and II, and was selected to serve as a Dean’s Writing Fellow as well as a Legal Research and Writing Teaching Assistant.
