Justin Kahn

Kahn Law Firm

I grew up in Charleston, SC and went to Tulane University in New Orleans. I double majored in Psychology and Communication even though I started off in Computer Science. While in college, I was a bartender. After graduating from the University of South Carolina School of Law, I started practicing law with my father. He taught me to love the challenge of pushing law forward with each case.

I have been an adjunct professor at the Charleston School of Law for over 10 years where I teach civil pre-trial practice. For 30 years, I have annotated the rules of procedure and evidence in South Carolina. I am always trying to improve.

I enjoy learning new skills and ideas related to neuroscience, graphic design and technology. I teach and write about these topics because sharing the knowledge helps all of us become better. I love performing magic and usually have a deck of cards on me. I am married and the proud parent of three children.
