        I had a call with Justin today. He blew me away with his knowledge and professionalism. He had answers to my problems... and concerns. I stay and Michigan, and I know that he is a value to anyone who has legal issues. Justin created an action plan for me to do. I would not have known what to do, if I hadn't reached out to Justin. 5 stars Plus is what he deserves.read more

        I cannot recommend The Sterling Firm highly enough. I was the victim in a fairly serious auto vs. pedestrian accident,... and The Sterling Firm was able to secure an insurance settlement that I never could have gotten for myself. In addition, Justin spent the following year fiercely pursuing a further settlement involving the accident. He remained inexhaustibly professional, focused and dedicated all along the way. I would refer anyone who is in need of legal support to The Sterling Firm!read more

        Justin Sterling is a very fine example of a lawyer willing to share his knowledge, wisdom and the practical side of... potential litigation. As a commercial collection and enforcement of judgment attorney without an ounce of knowledge of defamation and the potential for risk to my client and myself, I consulted Justin on a matter involving the Litigation Privilege and related matters in ongoing litigation in which I am lead counsel. He patiently, quietly, and very professionally helped me see issues and potential liability, for my client and myself in my planned course of conduct. about which I had not thought. His advice was/is excellent. I asked him for a bill for his time, but he refused to bill me. I would not hesitate to recommend him with 5 stars. Ron Slatesread more

        Justin took the time to set a consultation call with me, and share links on the information that was pertinent to my... circumstances.
