Justin Luger represents private and governmental entities in South Florida in both state and federal courts. Justin handles complex commercial, business, and municipal/government litigation. At the municipal level, he represents local governments in litigation issues including zoning and land use regulations, the creation and dissolution of special districts, and constitutional, civil rights, and negligence matters.

A fourth-generation native Miamian, Justin is passionate about helping to grow the Magic City through civic participation. He served for 3 consecutive years as general counsel to the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce – one of the youngest to ever hold the position in the over 100-year history of the Chamber. He was recently recognized by the Daily Business Review as a 2023 “Innovator” for outstanding work in the recovery of over $1.5 Million from FEMA on behalf of the Village of Pinecrest for amounts expended in post-disaster recovery efforts after Hurricane Irma in 2017.

Prior to joining the firm, Justin practiced complex commercial and securities litigation at a boutique Miami law firm, where he assisted in the defense of one of the world’s largest hedge fund administrators and custodians in a multi-billion dollar federal class action stemming from the Bernard Madoff Ponzi scheme.
