Justin Hurst is an Attorney at Law licensed to practice in the State of Texas. He focuses his practice primarily on estate planning, will contests, probate law, and other related legal matters. In other words, he compassionately helps families safely and securely receive the property that their loved ones leave after passing away.
He founded Justin Hurst Law, PLLC, a private law firm serving the greater Houston area, including Harris County, Montgomery County, and Fort Bend County. He launched JustinHurstLaw.com to provide a resource for families needing information and legal services related to the Texas Estates Code.
He earned a Juris Doctor degree from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University. During law school, he won the Rex E. Lee Moot Court competition, and subsequently competed with BYU Law’s National Moot Court Team. During undergraduate studies, he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy, with minors in both Logic and Business Management.
He participates in several professional organizations. For example, he has served on the Board of Directors of the Houston Northwest Bar Association. He is a member of the Real Estate, Probate & Trust Law section of the State Bar of Texas (REPTL), and was accepted as a member of the inaugural class of the REPTL Leadership Academy. This led to the opportunity to serve on the REPTL Power of Attorney and Advance Directives (PAAD) Committee, which advises and lobbies the Texas legislature about potential improvements to that area of law. He is also a member of the Houston Estate and Financial Forum. Additionally, he is a member of the Texas Bar College, an honorary society of lawyers who are among the best trained attorneys in Texas. Less than 5% of Texas attorneys qualify for membership, which requires earning at least double the amount of continuing legal education credits as otherwise required by the State Bar of Texas.
