Josh is a forward-thinking lawyer who has a particular focus on compliance plans and strategies for growing and multi-state businesses. Josh developed The Ogletree Deakins Model for Alabama Employers, a series of employment law compliance programs designed to meet growing companies at different growth points and ensure compliance with federal and state employment laws. These programs address handbooks, policies, wage and hour compliance, restrictive covenants (i.e. non-competition, non-solicitation, and confidentiality agreements), compliance plans for anticipated headcount and geographic growth, and independent contractor labor models. Josh delivers the programs on a flat-fee basis so clients have budgetary certainty and predictable pricing. Please email Josh if you would like additional information about The Ogletree Deakins Model for Alabama Employers.

As a litigator, Josh is well-versed in virtually every aspect of employment litigation. From handling bench and jury trials to arguing before the Federal Courts of Appeals, he has an accomplished litigation track record spanning jurisdictions across the country. A significant portion of Josh’s litigation practice is defending employers in class and collective actions alleging violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
