WSHB is pleased to announce the latest addition to our esteemed team with the arrival of Justin Leise, who joins as a partner based in the firm's Orlando and Miami offices. With a distinguished legal career focusing on construction-related litigation and arbitration, Justin brings a wealth of experience to WSHB's expanding practice.

Justin's expertise spans a variety of construction-related matters, including construction defect, negligence, breach of contract, building code violations, warranty disputes, and unfair trade practices. As a dedicated advocate for developers and general contractors, Justin has successfully navigated complex construction disputes throughout Florida. His strategic approach and commitment to client success make him a valuable asset to the firm.

In addition to his prowess in construction litigation, Justin possesses extensive experience in guiding clients through insurance coverage matters and developing effective strategies for transferring third-party risks. His multifaceted skill is in step with WSHB's commitment to providing comprehensive legal solutions to its clients.

Reflecting on this new venture, Justin stated, "I am excited to join WSHB, a firm with a great reputation for delivering exceptional legal services. I look forward to contributing my experience and dedication to further strengthen the construction litigation practice and provide outstanding representation for our clients."

A native of Florida, Justin's legal journey began in Orlando, where he started working at a Central Florida firm during his freshman year of college. Rising from a file clerk to a paralegal, he honed his skills and deepened his commitment to the legal profession. Justin continued his pursuit of a legal education at Barry University School of Law, where he excelled as editor for the Barry Law Review.

"We are delighted to welcome Justin to our firm," commented executive chairman and founding partner, Daniel Berman.
