Josh cares about his clients' business, not just their litigation. Having worked for a family-run company before entering law school, Josh sees business a little differently, understanding the livelihood behind companies' management. To Josh, a client's business is personal, and if he hasn't made his clients business better after working together, then he hasn't done his job. When working with cases, Josh is always focused on getting the best outcome for his clients as creatively and quickly as possible. He believes every day is another opportunity to grow and be better personally and professionally, which is what drives him to offer excellent service to his clients. Ultimately, Josh's philosophy is simple: stay positive, expect big things, be excellent, and, most importantly, do all these things in the best interest of the client.
