Justin Saxton was born in Greensboro, NC and raised in Charlotte, NC. He is a graduate of North Mecklenburg High school where he was a member of ROTC and on both the Junior Varsity and the Varsity football team. While in high school, Justin noticed that he attended school with a number of students who were coming in contact with the court system. While the majority of these students were involved with the Juvenile or Criminal court system, a number were also involved with Family Court and Civil Court. Seeing his peers caught up in the court system, Justin’s interest in the court system and the legal field as a whole grew. He decided to participate in the Young Explorers Program where he learned about the inner workings of the criminal justice system and the legal profession. Because of the intimate view of the criminal justice system that this program gave him, Justin decided that this was the field he wanted to work in.
Justin is currently a student at Hampton University where he is majoring in Criminal Justice. Throughout his time at Hampton University, Justin has been a member of the Criminal Justice Club and The North Carolina Pre-alumni Council. While in these clubs, Justin participated in several criminal justice forums and dedicated countless hours volunteering in food drives and road cleanups. After his second year in college, but before the Coronavirus pandemic, he interned with Court Camp, a program to teach youths about the criminal justice system. During his third year of college, the Coronavirus pandemic hit. Justin had to return home to Charlotte and continue his education through virtual learning. While disappointed that he was unable to continue having the true college experience, he decided to take advantage of his new free time in Charlotte. Justin interned at a civil law firm where he gained perspective and insight into a different type of law. Although he enjoyed his experience at a civil firm, Justin realized that his true passion was still helping youth who have become involved in the Justice System. In pursuit of his strong interest in Juvenile Law, Justin has since become a legal intern here at Kimberly Saxton & Associates, PLLC.
When Justin is not in class, volunteering, or here in the office, he enjoys spending time with friends and family, hiking with his dogs, playing video games, and watching sports.
