Joshua’s passion for human rights has underpinned his outstanding career representing clients in personal injury, Royal Commission and Estate litigation matters. Joshua approaches all of his clients with compassion and respect, as well as achieving exceptional compensation and commercial outcomes. Of note, Joshua has achieved a judgment of more than $2 million for a father of two who was “king hit” by a bouncer in Sydney’s nightclub district. He has also been and continues to be involved in complex workers compensation, motor accident, civil liability, medical negligence and Estate litigation claims, obtaining significant compensation outcomes for his clients. Joshua is also involved in work with Royal Commissions which features as a significant part of his practice.

As a lawyer, in addition to managing Personal Injury, Royal Commission and Estate Litigation, Joshua finds significant rewards in his role as chair of the Human Rights and Criminal Justice Committee of the Australian Lawyers Alliance. Joshua was called to give evidence to the NSW Parliament concerning amendments to racial vilification laws and continues to make ongoing submissions regarding law reform and social justice issues.

Joshua has previously brought a Human Rights case against the Australian Government for breaches of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on behalf of 295 military veterans who were exposed to harmful radiation in the 1950’s and 1960’s during British nuclear testing.

Joshua was given the Emerging Lawyer of the Year award in October 2013 in recognition of his outstanding contribution to and demonstrated passion for social justice issues. In 2014, he was a finalist in Lawyer’s Weekly, 30 Under 30 Awards.
