like and just like are to express similarity. but there is one idiom "just like.... so too...". These two can only compare nouns.

As and Just as can be used to compare nouns as well as sentences.

If it is a sentence, then it's gotta be "as".

you should consult your material such as PR or Kaplan verbal. they are explained there clearly.

"like" vs. "as"

as is for comparison. So it is right to say

He talks as(not like) his father does

like can be used as a verb or a preposition.

When used as a preposition the above sentence could be modified to

He talks like his father.

or as a verb as in

He likes her
