About Justin Greene

It is important to have a District Court Judge that has experience with different aspects of the law.  As you read about my experience and education, you will see that I have years in public service.  Better still, ask someone who has worked with me in law enforcement and the courtroom setting to better understand my faithfulness to upholding the law.
