Josh was introduced to how disability benefits affect a family at an early age – when his father suffered a traumatic brain injury after a major mountain biking crash when Josh was in high school. His father, who was the sole earner for the household, was in and out of 24-hour care for several months, and has not been able to return to the workforce since. It was the LTD benefits he received from his employer that kept the family above water.
For law school, Josh attended Thomas Jefferson School of Law and worked for a local Plaintiff’s personal injury firm during and after his schooling. While at TJSL, he worked as a professor’s assistant, coached an award-winning alternative dispute team, and took part in a volunteer teaching program, teaching homeless high school students at the Toussaint Academy in San Diego.
Josh decided to open his own practice in 2012 so he could focus on helping people with some of the most life-altering situations; dedicating his practice to make sure each client has their case seen through from beginning to end. Josh’s philosophy has always been that truly helping a client isn’t just through representation – but through personal attention, zealous advocacy, and transparency.
Outside of the office, Josh loves photography, mountain biking and road cycling, playing and talking about baseball, as well as checking out San Diego’s growing food and craft beer scene with his wife of 13 years, Julia.
