In the landmark automobile insurance case Riordan v. State Farm Mut. Auto. Ins. Co. before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, Justin successfully argued that his client could collect attorney fees from the insurance company because the insurance company forced the client to go to court to get the full benefit of the insurance policy.
Justin was born in Kalispell and raised in Butte and Augusta, Montana. He graduated from college and law school at the University of Montana. Justin was admitted to the State Bar of Montana in 1999.
After working in Helena at the Montana Supreme Court, the District Court, and the Montana School Boards Association, Justin moved to Missoula and began private practice.
