In almost all of my cases, a family has lost a loved one. They want answers about what caused the crash and want to make sure that no other family suffers the same fate. They deserve justice and I’m honored when our clients trust me to represent their cause.
Justin is a commercially licensed airplane and helicopter pilot; he is instrument-rated and has flight time in many different airplanes and helicopters.
Justin learned to fly in the United States Marine Corps and served as his squadron's aviation safety officer after graduating from the Naval Postgraduate School's Aviation Safety Program.
After serving in the military, Justin earned his law degree from Fordham University School of Law in New York City. His flight experience greatly contributes to his success representing families in major aviation cases. While Justin focuses his practice on airplane and helicopter accidents, his legal work also includes personal injury and wrongful death cases arising from other types of transportation accidents.
Justin’s prominent aviation cases include Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 (Boeing 737 MAX 8), Asiana Flight 214 in San Francisco, Turkish Airlines Flight 1951 and the Continental Connection Flight 3407 crash near Buffalo, New York. As a licensed commercial pilot, Justin brings first-hand knowledge to his cases.

Justin provides his insight and experience as one of the annual editors of the preeminent publication on the subject, Aviation Accident Law (Kreindler, Lexis/Nexis). Additionally, Justin frequently authors articles explaining legal issues surrounding aviation accidents and precedent-setting cases. In his article Recent Developments Relating to GARA, Justin notes an important concept that the General Aviation Revitalization Act “is not an insurmountable defense and it is in the public interest to hold manufacturers responsible for dangerous products. It is particularly in the public interest to bring to light any misrepresentations that a manufacturer made to the FAA. Unfortunately, plaintiffs’ lawyers are often the only ones willing or able to shed light on this corporate malfeasance.”
