Joshua represents clients in a variety of intellectual property matters, including patent prosecution, litigation, and counseling. As an electrical engineer with expertise in embedded systems and digital communication systems, his practice focuses on applying the law to complex technical issues. Joshua has managed patent portfolios and litigations for clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small-town startups.

Due to Joshua’s frequent involvement in complex patent matters involving large corporate disputes, he was recognized by Managing Intellectual Property magazine in 2017 as among the top-50 filers of inter partes review petitions. Joshua often works in nuanced industries, including cellular networks, green energy, video games, finance infrastructure, carrier networking, and television broadcast, that require a solid understanding of technology and its strategic importance in running a business.

Joshua earned a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Alabama, and a J.D. from the University of Alabama School of Law. Selected to the Order of Barristers, Joshua was awarded Best Brief, Best Oral Argument, and Best Overall in the Southeastern Lefkowitz Moot Court Tournament, and advanced to the national finals as a member of the Intellectual Property Moot Court Team.

Prior to law school, Joshua worked for ADTRAN as a Design Engineer, with experience both in hardware and software.
