Throughout his career, Josh has helped guide clients through the most difficult period of their lives: being charged with and/or investigated for a crime, or recovering from serious, physical injury. He has taken the skills and techniques gained from complex criminal and commercial litigation, class action lawsuits, and high-stakes civil litigation and used those skills to refine the approach he takes in each case. Josh has helped those injured through the negligence or wrongdoing of others recover funds to improve their lives. Josh has also helped doctors, lawyers, judges, pharmacists, nurses, athletes, entertainers and other professionals survive criminal charges or disciplinary complaints and preserve their professional licenses and careers. He regularly works with experts to help those who are accused challenge the prosecution’s evidence or to prove the case of someone who has been irreparably injured by negligence or wrongdoing.
After receiving honors from both his law school and his fellow law students, Josh clerked for Justice Edward L. Chavez of New Mexico Supreme Court and then earned his courtroom stripes by trying criminal cases as a public defender and as a lawyer in private practice in New Mexico. In 2015, Josh moved to Portland, Oregon, where he became the Research and Writing Specialist for the Chief Federal Defender of Oregon and, later, a partner in one of Portland’s premier criminal defense law firms. In both Oregon and New Mexico, Josh has worked on numerous high-profile cases proceeding in state and federal trial and appellate courts. Josh has also supervised and mentored law students beginning their journey into the world of practicing attorneys. Josh is thrilled to have recently rejoined Freedman Boyd Hollander, which he considers to be his home.
Josh focuses his practice on serious criminal cases, professional licensure, and personal injury matters.
