About me

I believe the best lawyer for you is almost always the one who will care the most about you and helping solve your problems.  My firm is a boutique practice, carefully choosing clients and causes that we believe in.  I represent individuals, injured people, families, and small to mid-sized businesses.  


I believe true professionalism requires a commitment to making your community a place where you're pleased to live. I devote much of my time and energy to causes and projects to improve the quality of life of Decatur and Central Illinois.

  • Jeffrey Ryan Hall

    Josh Rohrscheib's knowledge and experience is impressive. He is a great communicator and this is important when representing clients. Further, Josh is very smart as well as strategically aggressive and this works to the benefit of his clients. I highly recommend him.

  • William Joseph Mills

    Josh has always been a bulldog, even before his days as an attorney. He's kind and sincere with friends and clients, but I would not want to oppose him in court or in negotiations. He brings big firm experience and swagger to central Illinois.
