Areas of Practice

Roger Justin


My hobbies include hunting, fishing, and golf, all of which I enjoy. But, honestly, most of my off-duty time is spent on “projects” around my and my wife, Mary’s, St. Stephen farmhouse. Mowing and maintaining the yard, cutting, splitting, stacking and burning about 12 cords of wood annually to heat our home and shop; helping Mary with her flower gardens, vegetable gardens, sheep and chickens are a few of the things which I spend my time doing. Manual labor saves my brain cells for my clients.

And don’t bother trying to find me on Facebook. I don’t know where it is, and would rather you DIDN’T know what I am doing or have done.
