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
83 Questions Answered
Q. I want to know how I can get a protective order against my husband in the future if i want to leave him?
A: The short answer is "its easy" and "yes." Any victim of domestic violence qualifies for a protective order upon a basic showing to a judge, and they are offered in many communities 24/7. Larger counties have a One-Stop-Shop to assist. I recommend you speak with a qualified LOCAL family lawyer in your community as well. That lawyer can assist you in understanding your rights and obligations, as well as ensure you are following best practices with your planning. Having the right lawyer NOW ensures you keep focus on the big issues and have a backstop when you are feeling weak. Best of luck and no one should have to experience mental or physical domestic abuse, for spouses OR in-laws.
Q. can a stepfather file domestic violence against my stepdaughter's boyfriend verbal assaults on her if she want.
A: He can certainly report a crime to the police. Whether they act on it is up to the officers. Most jurisdictions take domestic violence seriously and chronic cases especially so.
Q. Whats the worse they can give me for charges simp. batt. agg. 1st offense, simp. batt. f.d.v. & 3rd child endangerment
A: Its hard to sort out the exact charges because of the abbreviations however all misdemeanors are punishable by up to 12 months, each. And they can run consecutively Battery, Simply Battery (both FV and not FV) are all misdemeanors, often pled in the alternative so if one sticks the others merge. Child Cruelty in the 3rd is a misdemeanor in GA, is that the charge you have? I think it is as that is having a violent incident in the presence of a minor, and does not include a wrongful touching of the minor. Hope that helps!
