Professional Webpage:


  • “ Josh Newville is the lawyer we should all strive to be. He is a very rare individual. A genuine crusader--the kind of lawyer who will have books written about him someday. Only three years out of law school and he's already spearheaded and WON federal marriage equality cases in North and South Dakota. If you haven't heard of him, just "Google" his name to see his accomplishments. He is as passionate and optimistic about the law as we all should be, and he practices it as we all wish we could. No one deserves this more than he does, period.”
  • “ Josh's young legal career is off to an amazing start. He was awarded The Equality and Justice Award by the MN Lavender Bar Association. This honor was bestowed on him because of his significant contributions to address equality and justice.”

These comments were made by fellow attorneys during the annual nomination process.
