I’m Justin Tapp and I have been licensed in Alaska since 2012 and in Texas since 2010. Before going to law school, worked for the United States House of Representatives in the second district of New Hampshire.
In that office, I helped people solve complicated immigration and naturalization issues. However, I noticed that many of my cases had to be turned over to attorneys to handle the legal side of things.
Eventually I became so frustrated at having to turn over my work to lawyers that I decided to become one myself, and enrolled at Baylor University School of Law in Waco, Texas.
As a law student, I worked for a wide variety of organizations involved in criminal law practice, including the Alaska Public Defender Agency in Kenai, the McLennan County District Attorney’s Office, the U.S. Federal Court in Waco, Texas, and as an inmate liaison / paralegal at the McLennan County Jail.
Prior to becoming a lawyer, I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in French and a Master of Public Administration degree, both from the University of North Texas.
