Justin Aanenson

Founding Attorney

Focus Areas

Collaborative Divorce, Uncontested Family Law Issues, Mediation


Justin grew up listening to courtroom tales told by his grandfather, a Helena, Montana defense attorney. Inspired by those stories, he became a  Washington State licensed lawyer in 2012. While practicing he felt there was a better way for many to experience the family law system, which led him to launch Truce Law. Justin focuses on making the divorce process as simple as possible, by giving clients the tools they need to find an agreed solution. He is a collaboratively trained attorney as well as a certified mediator. In 2022 and 2023, Super Lawyers recognized Justin as a Rising Star, which is an honor given to less than 2.5 percent of attorneys in each state.

Outside the office you can find Justin at Cafe Mox playing his favorite game, Commander, the best version of Magic: The Gathering. He spent his last birthday spey fishing for steelhead in Oregon and this year his personal goal is to shoot par in a round of golf. This goal is years in the making, which began when he worked high school summers hauling bags as a caddy at Aldarra Golf Club.


Justin graduated from the Seattle University School of Law as a Washington State Scholar, a scholarship awarded to the top 1% of the applicant pool. Prior to law school, he earned an undergraduate degree in finance and marketing from the University of Washington. For fun, he recently completed a year long certificate program at the UW in Popular Fiction Writing.

Justin volunteers time as a mediator with the Snohomish County Dispute Resolution Center and in the Arlington small claims court. He’s also provided legal services at the Union Gospel Mission’s legal clinic and through the Washington State Bar Association’s Moderate Means Program.
