Justin M. Alderman has devoted his legal career to representing individuals in Family law and Criminal Defense cases since he graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School and was admitted to the Minnesota Bar in 2013. His vast knowledge of the law, years of legal experience, and exceptional skills as a litigator and effective negotiator means that you will receive professional, ethical, effective and quality representation with your family law and criminal defense issues.
Justin has litigated hundreds of cases in his career, appearing in almost every county throughout the State of Minnesota. He has represented clients in all types of Family law hearings, including Temporary Motions, Evidentiary Hearings, Trials, Motions to Reconsider, Motions to Modify, Review Hearings, Contempt of Court, Appeals, Mediation, and Early Neutral Evaluations, and makes over 150 Court appearances each year.
Justin started his legal career in the small town of Olivia, Minnesota where he was the Assistant City Prosecutor for 7 cities in Renville County, but defended clients outside of Renville County on criminal matters. Justin used his experience as an assistant city prosecutor to help achieve favorable decisions for his clients that he defended. Justin also spent about 75% of his time in Olivia practicing Family Law.
Justin left the small town of Olivia to then work at the largest domestic litigation firm in the country when he moved back to the Twin Cities. Justin practiced only in the area of family law during this time. Justin then transitioned to a prominent firm in St. Paul, where he went back to practicing both Family Law and Criminal Defense, before opening his own success firm.
Justin is an attorney, yes, but never forgets that his clients are people with unique emotions and values. As an attorney with Kennedy & Ruhsam, Justin keeps you involved and personally guides you in making important decisions about your case, calmly and effectively. Justin lets you know what is going on at every stage and explains every small detail so that you are in charge.
In his free time, Justin enjoys traveling with friends and family, playing tennis, and is an avid fan of the Minnesota Gopher basketball and football teams and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
