If you’ve never met a code savvy attorney who develops software in his spare time, you’ve never met Josh. Writing code might not be everyone’s idea of a relaxing hobby, but then again, Josh isn’t everyone. Behind his code writing abilities and soft-spoken manner is a military background that has instilled in him a deep sense of commitment and resolve to get the job done, and to get it done right.  When he first decided to become an attorney, it was with an eye toward joining the JAG corps., but when he discovered that he could combine his love of technology with the law, the rest is history.

Having practiced patent law for almost 15 years, Josh has become a master-of-all trades. In addition to his computer software background, his mechanical proficiency means he’s right at home with engineers and inventors, who love his relaxed work style but who also share his brooding curiosity. From turbine engines and semiconductors, to plastics compositions and green energy innovation, Josh never has a problem finding solutions that are as innovative as the products he is protecting.

Those who know Josh feel right at home with his easy-going style, his witty retorts, and his expansive knowledge base. Those who are on the other side of the aisle from Josh find him to be a worthy advocate and opponent, with the depth of technical expertise to back up even the most complex arguments. From his background as a Captain in the Air Force, to his legal and technical prowess, our clients think Josh has all the right stuff, and so do we.
