After over 15 years working as a government prosecutor, Joshua moved into private practice as a criminal defense attorney, where he applies his significant trial experience and an aptitude for creative and strategic casework to defending persons accused of crime.

Before joining G&K, Joshua worked for the Yavapai County Attorney’s Office for seven years. He led the drug interdiction unit (narcotics trafficking) for four years, serving as a liaison between deputies and the County as “proactive prosecution.” Joshua then moved into the general trial unit for another four years where he handled complex felony offenses, including dangerous crimes against children, homicides, aggravated assaults, adult sex assaults, and white collar.

Joshua also worked as a Prosecutor for the City of Phoenix for seven years, earning a one-year assignment as a Special Assistant United States Attorney.

After graduating from law school, Joshua served in the United States Army Reserve Judge Advocate General’s Corp for 10 years, from 2008-2018, stationed in Korea and based out of Texas as a reservist. While a JAG, Joshua represented service members accused of misconduct and advocated for them during upgrading discharge procedures. Joshua earned his law degree from Arizona State University and his undergraduate degree in Political Science and Psychology from the University of Arizona.
