A boxing match is won long, long before the fighters step in the ring. The one that works the hardest preparing almost always wins – even against odds and against fighters with more experience. Justin’s performance in my case was a testament to that. He was fighting a whole team of attorneys by himself for most of the case and kicking their ass. My only regret is not getting to watch the trial, as the case settled after jury selection. -Dave

Energetic, determined, personable, smart, resourceful, and ambitious, Mr. Carlin demonstrates key attributes of some of the nation's top litigators. I've been able to refer Mr. Carlin cases and he has exceeded my expectations each time. I would trust him with not only a client's woes but also with my own, Mr. Carlin is one of the very select few I would trust to pursue my rights, or to defend me should the occasion arise. -Attorney in the community

I used Justin for an issue I had with the State concerning the classification of a part time independent contractor I used in my business. The worker was disputing that he was a contractor. . . . Ultimately, through [Justin’s] handling of the situation, the worker was found to be an independent contractor. I can’t thank him enough. Based on my working with him, I have sent a few people to Justin for their legal problem. –Employment Client.
