Member At Large
Jared Justice was born and raised in the Clackamas County area. Before law school, he attended Canby High School. He went on to Portland State University (for a year), and transferred to Southern Oregon University.
Although he always wanted to be an attorney, he decided not to take the traditional pre-law route. He left S.O.U. with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration, with a focus in marketing. He based this decision largely on advice he received from attorneys throughout the years (you know who you are), and it was great advice.
Shortly after college he moved to Lansing, Michigan to attend Thomas M. Cooley Law School. While there he participated in an externship with Washtenaw County Public Defender. At the beginning of 2009 he started his practice with a focus on Criminal Defense, and currently has an office in Oregon City. Over the past four years he has enjoyed his practice very much.
His hobbies include: live music, movies, snowboarding, and correcting people who think he made up or changed his last name—he did not. Some people are born with it, some aren’t.
