Equality & Opportunity

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.

Growing up in the deep south, Joshua was raised with an appreciation of individualism and a skepticism toward overreaching government. In college, he solidified his deeply ingrained love of liberty by studying Austrian economics and becoming a founding member of his school’s Young Americans for Liberty chapter.

Joshua earned B.A. degrees in Foreign Languages, Criminal Justice, and Psychology from the University of Southern Mississippi and a J.D. from the University of Alabama School of Law. 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.

Joshua is a member of the bar only in the state of California.
