Justin Burns was born and raised in the farming communities of the Columbia River Basin in Oregon, where his father worked as a farm and ranch real estate appraiser and broker. So it’s not surprising that agricultural and real estate finance have become his default settings. In other words, he doesn’t have to start from square one when it comes to understanding the unique issues of and approaches to those areas of law.
After graduating from Oregon State University and receiving his law degree from Willamette University College of Law, Justin worked at firms in Pendleton and Portland, Oregon and Denver, Colorado before operating his own law firm. He now lives in Denver, Colorado and is licensed to practice in Oregon, Washington, and Colorado.
Drawing on a lifetime of professional experience and personal knowledge, Justin continues to work primarily in agricultural finance and real estate. He represents clients in a broad array of transactions including the acquisition, disposition, leasing, and financing of agricultural operations of all sizes. His practice also includes commercial transactions and occasional litigation in general real estate development and investment, tribal government relations, insurance, and other related areas.
Over the course of helping his wife raise their five young and active sons, Justin has developed some useful skills—lightning fast reflexes, uncanny peripheral vision, and the ability to concentrate in the presence of loud noises and unexpected flying objects—that also come in handy in the legal profession. During the rare interludes when he is not driving one or more of them to or from baseball practice, Justin likes to exercise outdoors in quiet and secluded locations.
