Justina prefers investigative work because it allows her to critically analyze all sides of a story, something lawyers rarely get to do.
Justina recently graduated from UC Davis School of Law. She grew up in the Sacramento area, where her family settled after immigrating from Egypt. Having grown up in a diverse city to immigrant parents, Justina developed a strong appreciation for varying backgrounds and perspectives.
In law school, Justina volunteered at a Workers’ Rights Clinic through Legal Aid, where she represented several clients in Labor Commissioner hearings. Her exposure to employment law ultimately led her to OIG, where she interned for two years before joining the firm full time.
During her time in law school, Justina was also on the board of Humanitarian Legal Aid Organization, Black Law Student Association, and Trial Practice Honor Board. She was a member of the trial team and participated in various expungement and immigration clinics.
Justina likes running, traveling, and listening to true crime podcasts. She’s also an avid coffee drinker and has recently enjoyed discovering new coffee shops in the Sacramento area.
