Aaron. You are correct insofar as "before" can refer to time or place but your example us incorrect. He stands before us implies he is in a court and we are the jurors. In which case before is a preposition and takes the accusative case - us. If you want to say that he appears earlier, you'd have to say he appears before we (do).
