About Justin


Justin began his career early, working in the pizza shop owned and operated by his aunt and uncle in Latham, New York. His earliest work memories are making pizza boxes and helping out on the phones on busy Friday nights.

After graduating high school, Justin attended Union College in Schenectady, New York. While there, he held several politically-oriented positions, including an internship with the Office of Congressman Paul D. Tonko (NY-20), and on the reelection campaign of John Faso for Congress (NY-19). He began his career in the law with an internship with a Union College alum, Evans J. Legros, Esq., in the summer of 2018, primarily overseeing real estate transactions in Manhattan with the Legros Law Firm.

In June 2019, Justin graduated Magna Cum Laude from Union College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science while double minoring in History and German Language. Following his graduation and seeking to fulfill his dream of a future career in law, Justin decided to attend the Syracuse University College of Law beginning in August 2019. While at the College of Law, Justin has enjoyed academic success while also endeavoring to participate in extracurricular activities, including serving as Managing Editor of the Syracuse Journal of International Law and Commerce, as a Research Assistant for Professor C. Cora True-Frost, as a Procedural Advisor to students accused of violating the Syracuse University Student Code of Conduct, and as a Law Ambassador for the Office of Admissions.

Justin joined the Nave Law Firm in May 2021, where he primarily assists and works directly with the Managing Partner.   As a result, Justin works across the firm’s practice areas but focuses particularly on criminal defense, DWI, traffic offenses, and license matters.

Why do i do what i do?

I strongly believe that the leading factor in over-incarceration is the inability of everyday people to find counsel to help them understand their situation and their rights. As Chief Justice Roberts says, “You can’t fight for your rights if you don’t know what they are.” I decided to become an attorney to help people in the most difficult times of their lives, whether they’ve been charged with a crime, or are simply trying to regain the rights and privileges that come with being an American citizen. I take special pride in offering the best legal services, maintaining thorough and consistent communication with our clients to help them understand their situation and their rights, and working with them to get the best results possible.

It’s hard to see the “light” after you’re in such an awful position. It’s important to choose a team who will literally be by your side through it all. Working with this firm was the best decision I could have made.
Honest great lawyer, and very empathetic and reasonable. Their Willingness to work with you and help is amazing. Would highly recommend. Not one of those slimy lawyers that milk every dime they can out of you. One of the good ones.
