Justin Whitmel Earley | When he's not closing a deal or helping a business navigate a key contract, Justin can be found talking on porches with his friends in Richmond, writing & speaking on the power of habits, or chasing down one of his four sons.

As a writer, speaker and corporate lawyer, Justin believes in the power of words to change things.

Justin is a self-starter, so as a lawyer he doesn't just think about how to manage risk, he thinks about how to take the right risks. If you need help negotiating a key contract, launching a new venture, navigating an acquisition, or if you are looking for someone to give a keynote about how to unite vision and habit in the workplace - give Justin a call.
