  • Meril Eugene Anthes Jr.

    I first met Josh ten years ago when I clerked for his firm. His work ethic and legal knowledge are something I aspire to in my own practice. He’s the first person I think of when asked for a referral on complex criminal matters. You can sleep soundly if he’s in your corner.

  • Carl David Ceder

    I endorse this lawyer. Josh was my instructor in law school. He is the one of the best in the business, and I learned a lot from him. I can honestly say he made me a much better attorney from his practical teaching from his real-world experience (that cannot be said of all law school courses).
