Joseph is a litigator with a practice that centers on disputes both large and small, simple and complex. The cases he has worked on span numerous fields of law, including personal injury, securities law, premises liability, insurance coverage, product defects, construction defect, and real estate disputes.  Throughout the course of his practice, Joseph has engaged in all aspects of trial court level litigation, including drafting and arguing dispositive motions in state and federal court.  He always keeps an eye toward the best outcome for his clients in all phases of the litigation process.

Before joining Jordan Ramis, Joseph gained experience practicing in an insurance defense based practice, as well as litigating on behalf of financial institutions and loan servicers in federal and state court.  He is well versed in pretrial discovery and depositions, having taken and defended dozens of civil depositions.  In addition, Joseph has obtained victory in dispositive motions for his clients in numerous cases, including those involving product liability, state securities law, the Stored Wire Communications Act, negligence, and premises liability.  Joseph has second-chaired civil trials, first chaired arbitration proceedings, and frequently engages in mediations and other alternative-dispute resolution processes.
After law school, Joseph clerked for the honorable Anna J. Brown in the United States District Court for the District of Oregon. While in law school, he served as a judicial extern to the Honorable Justice Rives Kistler of the Oregon Supreme Court and the Honorable Judge Jack Bullins of Lane County Circuit Court in Eugene.  Also in law school, Joseph served as an editor of the Oregon Law Review.
In his own time, Joseph enjoys spending time with his wife and children, hopefully while smoking the family dinner on his pellet smoker.
