I called several law facilities to help with my case and did not get much great news from them. I then called Justin and although it was a tough case, he still took it and worked with me. He calls you throughout the entire process and keeps you updated. I am satisfied with my results 100% and received more than I have suspected. 10/10 would recommend this law office for any matters. This lawyer actually CARES about you. You can tell in his work. Thank you again Justin.

I had a medical lien on my PI case. My previous PI lawyer did not help me to reduce the medical lien by more than 50% after he settled my case. I immediately called Justin Sterling Firm. He responded to me right away and let me know what he can do with my case. He came up with a good plan and strategy. He was able to reduce my medical lien payment further down and saved a lot of money for me that now I can use that for my future treatment. I’m very happy with his work, he did a great job, was always available to answer my questions/concerns at any time with a high level of professionalism, and worked very diligently to resolve my case. I wish Justin was my lawyer from the beginning of my PI case. I definitely recommend him to everyone and I’ll continue to use his services for any legal matter I need in the future.
