About me

Joshua W. Branch began working in a law firm at the age of 16. He attended undergraduate school at the University of Georgia and went to law school at Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, Florida and between those two times he lived in Breckenridge, Colorado for a year. 


Joshua W. Branch began his legal career in Pensacola, Florida working at an insurance defense firm though his passion was always to help individuals and not defend large insurance corporations.  After enduring Hurricane Ivan he was forced to move from Pensacola and eventually located to Athens, Georgia where he maintains his practice which is devoted exclusively to pursuing justice for individuals who have been severly injured by others.
