About me

Josh is an attorney with Reid H. Ervin & Associates, a two-attorney firm solely dedicated to representing employees across a broad spectrum of industries. While most of the matters Josh has worked on are subject to confidentiality, some others have been featured in the Washington Times, Virginian Pilot and Virginia Lawyer’s Weekly.

In addition to representing employees in litigation type settings, Josh advises management and decisionmaker employees in both the private and federal sector who are facing disciplinary action, possible termination, or are being forced out. Josh has helped clients in these situations either keep their jobs or peacefully exit from their situations by obtaining a negotiated severance package.

Josh received his J.D. from Regent University School of Law in 2008, where he was a brief writer for Regent’s nationally recognized moot court team. Josh’s team at the 2007-2008 American Bar Association National Appellate Advocacy Competition was awarded the Best Brief and Regional Champions at the Washington, D.C. Regional. 

Josh resides in Chesapeake with his wife, Shanna, and two small boys. In his free time, he is an avid follower of the Chicago Cubs and enjoys reading about theology and insider accounts of Washington politics. He is a member of New Life Providence Church, where he leads a small group and coaches a men’s softball team.
