Josh is an associate attorney with Burress Law. He spent the first 7 years of his practice on the defense side, working with some of the largest insurance carriers in both the U.S. and out of the Lloyd’s Market in London. That experience gave him incredible insight into how personal injury cases are litigated, tried and valued from a defense perspective, which allows him to be a better advocate and attorney for plaintiffs facing what can be one of the most difficult times in their lives.
Josh made the decision to switch to the plaintiff’s side because he wanted to find more of the personal service side of this practice that was sometimes lacking on the defense side. Josh became a lawyer because he wanted to help people as much as he could. Now having the ability to personally connect with his clients and fight on their behalf, his practice has never been more rewarding.
Josh is a native Texan, growing up in East Texas before moving to the DFW area. He obtained his undergraduate degree at the University of North Texas and law degree from the SMU Dedman School of Law. While attending law school, Josh clerked for the Texas Fourth Court of Appeals, the Collin County District Attorney, as well as a local civil litigation firm. He has extensive experience in the areas of personal injury, premises liability, wrongful death and product liability (product defects).
