Justin Nahama, Esq.
Justin Nahama is a highly-accomplished Marine, leader, business strategist and attorney. Despite his extensive experience and success protecting his clients at two of the largest law firms in the world, nothing prepared him for the challenges he faced navigating his son’s Autism diagnosis around age 2. After experiencing countless exhausting battles with his son’s insurance providers, school district, and other professionals for the next few years—coupled with no clear roadmap for the journey ahead—Justin set out on a path to get answers. He spoke to dozens of families who shared they were experiencing similar frustration, heartbreak and fear about what the future held for their loved ones. Justin then engaged his global network to speak to industry-leading professionals in Autism to understand their perspectives on battle-tested strategies and solutions to better support families. NuroLux™ was born when Justin realized that he was not alone in his journey. In the words of a successful healthcare business owner Justin previously helped, “Justin is a powerhouse leader, any effort Justin leads becomes a movement without fail.” Justin is proudly now helping lead NuroLux™’s movement to level the playing field for all families impacted by Autism.
