Joshua rejoined the Pacific Legal Foundation’s Sacramento office in 2019 after completing a summer clerkship in 2018. He practices within several PLF’s litigation areas including economic liberty and property rights.

During law school he was the Editor-in-Chief of the Alabama Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Law Review. In this position, he hosted several liberty-focused events with topics ranging from criminal justice reform to equality in education.

With his free time, Joshua enjoys traveling, watching Colts football, and reading science-fiction.
