Attorney Justin Wallace moved to Manitowoc after completing law school in Madison and loves the area.  He specializes in civil litigation and in particular defending people, businesses, and insurers who have claims brought against them. Justin also employs his knowledge and experience in the insurance industry to assist local people and businesses with navigating insurance litigation. Attorney Wallace also has extensive experience defending health care providers against medical malpractice claims.  He graduated from Grinnell College in 2005 with degrees in Math and English and from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 2008 with honors.  Justin also works with both employees and employers to resolve employment disputes to his client’s satisfaction.  

Justin has a great deal of respect for juries and the trial process and enjoys the opportunity to represent his clients in that forum if needed.  He argued before the Wisconsin Supreme Court in a recent landmark case relating to insurance coverage for businesses, Talley v. Mustafa.  Justin has published a chapter in Wisconsin Trial Practice, in state law journals, taught continuing legal education seminars and presented at conferences for attorneys, and given numerous presentations to companies and individuals on insurance and workplace issues.  He defends the Big Bad Wolf annually for second graders at Law Day, helps Manitowoc natives who are being treated improperly by the legal system on a pro bono basis, and serves on the Board of Directors of Pine Hills Country Club. 

In his spare time, Justin enjoys playing golf, Badger basketball, and exploring small Wisconsin downtowns, parks, and festivals with his Bernese Mountain Dogs.
