Endorse Joshua
Corporate and incorporation Attorney | Apr 23
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"You've got to respect a lawyer with the wisdom and foresight to become affiliated with Avvo.com. The in-house gig can be really great or really sorry, depending on the corporate culture in which you find yourself. Here's hoping that Mr. King and Avvo have a long, long, long, very fruitful, and mutually enjoyable association. Oh, and I endorse this lawyer, too."
General practice Attorney | Feb 15
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Josh has been Avvo's GC for the last 4 years. When we hired him, I did not envy his position as a GC working for an ex-GC. But Josh came in and was so competent that I was able to transition everything to him almost immediately. The only way I can describe Josh is "grace under pressure." He is consistently the voice of reason at Avvo. Nothing seems to rattle him and his advice is always very practical and well-researched. When he talks, Team Avvo listens."
Contracts and agreements Attorney | Nov 15
Relationship: Worked together on matter
