He has also served clients in matters involving pharmaceutical products liability, manufacturers' contract disputes, regulatory compliance, and insurance.

After law school, Josh was a litigation associate at Kirkland & Ellis LLP. Following his time there, Josh continued his litigation practice as an experienced trial team attorney at Grippo & Elden LLC.

At Grippo & Elden, he was the Associate Chair of the Electronic Discovery Resource Group, where he helped manage the firm's training and research on e-discovery.

Josh also devotes time to serving a variety of pro bono clients, including representation of mentally ill patients in a large class action suit and the defense of a wrongfully convicted inmate seeking post-trial DNA testing.
