Josh began his career defending individuals, businesses and their insurance companies across the Commonwealth of Virginia with a small insurance defense firm in Richmond, Virginia. He then moved to a mid-sized Chicago based firm, but remained in their Virginia office before joining Harman Claytor Corrigan & Wellman. He has tried approximately 15 trials to jury verdict and over 50 bench trials. He defends clients in matters ranging from personal injuries in motor vehicle accidents, premises liability cases, products liability and policy coverage questions. While predominately litigating cases in the courtroom, he has attended dozens of mediations and arbitrations, where appropriate to protect his client’s interests.
