    Josh went above and beyond to protect my rights against an overreaching City and solved the problem at the lowest possible level without litigation or even headache. He did a great job of explaining my case to me and listening to my point of view on strategy. I use attorneys for various things regularly, and Josh is definitely one that can turn loose and just show up for your hearing. I have never seen a more prepared attorney, I will use Josh time and time again.
