Foster Garvey is pleased to announce that Justice Brooks, an Associate in the firm’s Litigation group, has been selected as a 2022 Portland Business Journal ‘40 Under 40’ award honoree. The award annually recognizes 40 Portland-area young professionals for outstanding leadership in their careers and compelling community involvement.
Justice, who serves in the Litigation practice group in the firm’s Portland office, focuses primarily on business, commercial and construction litigation, as well as insolvency and bankruptcy matters. An attorney for eight years, his experience includes a broad range of trial and appellate experience in state and federal court, as well as providing advice and training to clients on business and employment matters.
“Justice has a reputation as a skilled litigator who is respected by his colleagues for his professionalism, candor, communication and legal skills,” said Cynthia Fraser, Co-Chair of Foster Garvey’s Litigation practice. “He is equally dedicated to his community through his professional and volunteer activities. Justice has an incredible drive and commitment to make an impact in every facet of his work, and we look forward to continuing to see his star rise here at Foster Garvey and in the community.”
Highly active in both the legal and local community, Justice is a “Crew Member” for Know Me Now, a Portland-based non-profit initiative that connects community members with soon-to-be-released incarcerated parents. He also currently serves on committees for the Multnomah Bar Association and the Oregon State Bar, as a mentor with the Professional Mentor Program at the UALR William H. Bowen School of Law, and as a member of the Foster Garvey Opportunity & Progress Council. Justice previously served as a Board Member of his law school’s Alumni Association, as President of the W. Harold Flowers Law Society, and as a Board Member of the American Red Cross of Greater Arkansas. Additionally, he devotes his time as a volunteer football, basketball and soccer coach for Portland-based youth teams.
Justice was recognized earlier this year as a Top 40 Under 40 Attorney by The National Black Lawyers and was named a Rising Star by Mid-South Super Lawyers in 2017.
