I am a "strategic interpretive replicator." Basically, I see or experience success in one context and I do my best to replicate it in another. The law presents a fascinating opportunity to apply that ability by taking a mixture of facts, personalities, case law, statutes, experience, and extracting the useful parts of each to apply to my next case.
I enjoy helping people who have been fired or discriminated against for the wrong reasons - especially when it's companies or individuals who should know better. As a former small business owner, I also enjoys helping small and mid-size businesses avoid employment-related disputes by either taking steps NOW to prevent that risk or defending a lawsuit when it happens. I absolutely love being part of the appellate process to either defend a great result or change a bad one.
I am married with two daughters (8 & 5). My interests include reading, writing, piano (30+ years), shooting (not hunting), aviation, foreign travel, and saving for the weddings.

I've known Joshua for years and practiced with him for 3 years. I can attest to his intellect, tenacity, and professionalism. He is one of the best courtroom orators I have seen, both at the trial court level and in the appellate court setting. Joshua genuinely cares for his clients and their cases.
