• Justin A. DiBona

Justin DiBona joined Gunderson, Palmer, Nelson & Ashmore, LLP as an associate attorney in 2016 but has a long history with the firm, as he clerked at GPNA during college and interned in law school. His specialties include Business and Estate Planning,  Probate and Estate Administration, and Business Success Planning. Working closely with Pat Goetzinger, Justin compares his tutelage with the state’s premier Estate Planning attorney to learning basketball from the likes of Michael Jordan. With an entrepreneurial spirit and focus on client satisfaction, Justin has wanted to practice law since he first saw “A Few Good Men” as a child. He especially loves helping his clients protect their interests from the greed of rogue family members!

Justin was born in Aberdeen and grew up in Rapid City. He attended Rapid City Christian High School and then Northern State University where he majored in finance with a minor in economics. Justin received a full scholarship to Creighton University School of Law in Omaha. There, he tutored at the legal writing center and served as a research assistant in matters of tax and business law, securities regulation and gaming law. He graduated magna cum laude, in the top 10% of his class.

Justin and his wife Hannah have two little boys (Beckham, 3 and Cooper, 1 year old). They enjoy time with extended family around Rapid City. Justin stays active with golf and exercise. He plays city-league basketball and football and spent two years coaching kindergarten basketball. Hard-working, intelligent and conscientious, Justin has been a welcome asset to the GPNA team. He loves nothing more than a thoughtful conversation and knows that the mark of a great attorney is to be a true listener!
