Josh focuses his practice throughout the states of Missouri and Illinois, and in doing so, has had the opportunity to try cases and obtain outstanding results for his clients in the City of St. Louis, Missouri and Madison County, Illinois, which are widely regarded as two of the top ten worst venues for defendants in the United States.

Since 2004, he has successfully represented his clients in all facets of litigation and trial.

Josh graduated at the top of his class from Saint Louis University School of Law where he was awarded a Dean’s Academic Scholarship and was a member of the Saint Louis University Law Journal. He was admitted to practice law in the state of Missouri in 2004, the state of Illinois in 2006, and is licensed in several United States Federal Courts.
