Joshua Cohen Slatkin is the principal of JCS Law Firm. He received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from Brandeis University in 2007 and graduated from Loyola Law School in 2012.
Josh then pursued the practice of criminal defense as a law clerk with the office of the Los Angeles County Public Defender in 2011. As a law clerk, Josh prepared witnesses and cross-examination questions for DUI jury trials, interviewed clients in custody, assisted attorneys with all aspects of felony preliminary hearings, and assisted misdemeanor attorneys with the daily calendar of cases. Josh was also a law clerk with the Loyola Law School Project for the Innocent, where he was part of the team that exonerated Obie Anthony, who served 17 years in prison for a murder he did not commit.
Josh has had five personal injury jury trials since opening his own law office in 2013, more than almost any other personal injury attorney of his years of experience who has their own firm.
Josh had the privilege and honor of being selected to the Southern California Rising Stars list every year since 2016, an honor reserved for those lawyers who exhibit excellence in practice. Only 2.5% of attorneys in Southern California receive this distinction.
Josh serves as a member of numerous professional organizations, including the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles, Consumer Attorneys of California-New Lawyers Division, National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, California DUI Lawyers Association, and the California Employment Lawyers Association. He is fluent in Spanish.
