Joshua is a member of the Smith Freed Eberhard’s Construction and Development Group. Prior to joining Smith Freed Eberhard, Joshua graduated from The University of Mississippi School Of Law in 2013. After law school, Joshua practiced for a small general law firm in his native Southern Illinois. Joshua moved to Portland in 2016, and began working as an in-house paralegal for a major insurance company where he provided support for the construction defect team. Joshua was admitted to the Oregon State Bar Association in May of 2018 and joined Smith Freed Eberhard in July of that same year.
Prior to pursuing his legal career, Joshua worked for his father’s construction company where he gained invaluable experience in the construction industry. Although he enjoyed the work, one hot summer day while working on a roof, Joshua decided that it was time to pursue a college education.
Outside of work, Joshua enjoys exploring different cities, hiking, and camping.
