For nearly fourteen years, Josh served the citizens of Dallas County as an assistant district attorney. He served the last ten of those years as a court chief for three different district court judges. During his tenure as an assistant district attorney, he prosecuted nearly every kind of case imaginable. He has over 200 jury trials to his credit, including, but not limited to, six capital murders (where the death penalty was sought), over thirty murders, and countless aggravated robberies, assaults with a deadly weapon, aggravated sexual assaults, improper relationship cases, burglaries, intoxication manslaughters and assaults, driving while intoxicated cases, and family violence assaults. Due to his high level of experience and superior knowledge of criminal law, Josh was called upon to teach and train other assistant district attorneys. He has also been asked repeatedly to train other defense attorneys in the art of selecting criminal juries.

He has also been appointed as a special prosecutor by judges throughout the metroplex, an honor bestowed upon only the very best attorneys. Josh has also received national attention for several of his cases, and his work has been featured on Dateline, Inside Edition, First 48, and After the First 48.
