Justin Sparks was born in Houston, Texas and, before high school, he and his family moved to their family ranch in Weimar, Texas. Justin graduated from Weimar High School and then attended Baylor University, where he double majored in Economics and Real Estate and graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Business Administration.
After Baylor, Justin attended Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (what is now known as Texas A&M School of Law) in Fort Worth, Texas and received his J.D. in 2007.
Criminal Defense Experience
Upon graduating law school, Justin was hired by Tim Curry the elected DA at the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office as an assistant district attorney where he handled grand jury investigations and presentations, plea negotiations, hearings, trials before the court, and jury trials. In his time there, Justin was responsible for thousands of cases and tried more than one hundred cases. After two years with the DA’s office, Justin moved to private practice focusing on state and federal criminal defense where he became a partner.
In 2015, Justin decided to leave the firm and open his own practice, continuing with a focus on criminal defense. The Sparks Law Firm covers all criminal defense practice areas, but has a focus on white collar crime and federal crime defense. Justin also brings an expert knowledge to Texas firearms and carry cases during a time when what is legal and what is not can be very confusing.
Throughout his legal career, Justin has given many speeches in the Dallas and Fort Worth areas on topics including self defense, the use of deadly force, and when to stand your ground. Check Justin out In the News to view more appearances, talks, and stories he’s been featured in.
