Justin Paperny graduated from the University of Southern California and then built a career as a successful stockbroker. Some bad decisions led Justin into problems with the criminal justice system, including a felony conviction for violating securities laws. A federal judge sentenced Justin to serve an 18-month prison term.

While in prison, Justin made a commitment to make amends through daily, incremental action steps. He began documenting his journey, which resulted in two books:

· Lessons From Prison

· Ethics in Motion

Justin concluded his obligation to the Federal Bureau of Prisons in 2009. Upon his release, he built White Collar Advice, a business to help others that face challenges with the criminal justice system. His techniques have helped more than 100,000 people get best outcomes after they’ve been charged by prosecutors.

National media outlets including ABC News, CNBC, NBC News, Forbes, Fox News, CNN, The Washington Post and others regularly feature Justin’s inspiring story of success after struggle. In June 2015, NBC Universal aired, My Deal With The Devil, a 60-minute show that profiled Justin’s story.

His latest work includes Living Deliberately a book to help small business owners and entrepreneurs that want to use digital media strategies to find more customers.
