He served as president of his local Young Lawyers’ Division, where he helped increase membership involvement. He also served on the local legal aid board and eventually was elected vice president of the board. There, he helped ensure the delivery of legal services to those that cannot afford a lawyer.

For the Pennsylvania Bar Association, Josh serves as the sole Young Lawyer Delegate to the ABA House of Delegates, the national governing body for the American Bar Association.

At the national level, Josh has been appointed to several committees where he works with other lawyers and advisors from around the globe. Most recently, Josh served for three years as one of twelve lawyers from around the country on the ABA Standing Committee on Professionalism. Then, in 2017, the ABA President appointed Josh as a special advisor to the committee.

In 2016 Josh was recruited to the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being, a group dedicated to fighting the alarming rates of clinical depression and substance abuse in the legal profession. In 2017 the Task Force authored their final report, The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change.

Dedicated Husband

Josh and his wife Chelsea met in Pittsburgh while Chelsea was working downtown and Josh was starting his first small business. They have been together for six years, and live in Harleysville with a small zoo: their dog Gandalf, and their cats Binx, Archimedes, and Minerva.

Family Man

Family is one of the most important things to both Josh and Chelsea. That’s why they both left successful careers in western Pennsylvania and moved to Montgomery County so they would be close to family. Josh’s parents still live where he grew up in Southampton and Huntingdon Valley, and Chelsea’s family are nearby in Philadelphia.


After Josh struggled with weight issues during his adolescence and early adult life, his brother motivated him to finally put in the hard work to get healthy. He lost over 100 pounds and has since completed five marathons.
