Justin E. Jorgensen is a civil litigation attorney focusing his practice on the defense of matters related to commercial litigation, insurance coverage and premises liability.
As a judicial law clerk personally assisting Judge Leah K. Seaton in the Circuit Court for Wicomico County, Maryland, on more than 1,000 cases and nearly 50 jury trials, Justin gained experience successfully handling a high case load involving criminal matters and civil cases ranging from attorneys’ fee issues to boating contract disputes.
Justin also interned for the City Attorney of Richmond where he helped defend the city against claims made under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). During his internship, Justin prepared a 20-page memo regarding an employee’s claim against the city. His memo facilitated the settlement of the claim for far less than the city’s maximum settlement goal before a federal magistrate judge, who agreed with his legal analysis.
Justin is diligent on the front end of litigation preparation to help his clients avoid jury trial. In the event a trial is necessary, Justin’s tireless work ethic and open communication style ensure he provides the work product necessary to achieve optimal results for his clients.
