Biography

"We Won!!" was not something Josh heard a lot as a kid.

Never the sportiest fella, East Cobb, Georgia didn't inspire him to a sportsball career despite his innate athletic ability. Graduating from The Walker School Josh went North, to Clark University, MA (Hippies and folks from New York, and SO MANY international people!). Chasing young love back to Georgia, Josh graduated from Georgia State University College of Law in 2002 without any honors. He was on Mock Trial and did Moot Court, though. And was fun.

Josh clerked in Cobb Superior Court (A. Grubbs), closed real estate during the boom, and then figured out that Talking was what he really liked so Josh became a PD. LOVED IT, but it was awful to participate in a system that was so broken.

in 2007 Josh graduated from Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College in Wyoming (www.triallawyerscollege.com/), quit working for the State and hung out a shingle. Wandering Solo was a bore, so Doug Chanco (former #JerkProsecutor Josh fought with all the time) argued with Josh to partner with him, and Doug won.

Now "We Won!" is a touch more common...

Legal Answers
Q. How far back do they search a criminal background in Georgia on a misdemeanor in another state?
A: All depends on who is doing the searching. There are a lot of different "background searches" available on the market, and they each have different parameters. The better questions are what is the search for and what form of search is being conducted.
Q. Can they press charges if they hit you first with a weapon
A: Odds are if the cops are made aware, they are going to investigate and determine if they should arrest anyone. Getting a lawyer involved out front assists in getting your version of the events presented properly and with the most impact. I advise if arrests appear imminent that you hire a lawyer sooner rather than later as the events occurring at the very inception of the matter tend to have dramatic effect on the resolution.
Q. My fiancé(20) has a controlling family. His father and sister beat him, so I (20) came to GA from TN to pick him up.
A: He needs to retain a lawyer to navigate the warrant process IF a warrant has actually been issued. Who told you there was a warrant? A lawyer will be able to contact the authorities, verify the accuracy of the warrant status as well as ensure the process is handled expeditiously. There are big benefits to using a lawyer to arrange "turn in" if there is an actual warrant. A Protective Order for harassment/stalking is the best path to prevent his parents from bothering him and you, and a lawyer can assist with that as well.
