Details

Currently and for the past several years, most of Josh's work has involved seeking remedies through civil litigation or pre-litigation settlement communications for clients who have suffered economic injuries in the millions of dollars as a result of fraud, breach of contract, or government misconduct. In addition, much of Josh’s work in recent years has involved defending health care providers and others in the health care industry against accusations that they committed health care fraud, violated the Anti-Kickback Statute, or both. These matters have involved retail, specialty, and compounding pharmacies; various types of medical practices (including traditional office settings, inpatient and outpatient clinics and other treatment facilities, and telemedicine); laboratories; and durable medical equipment suppliers. The accusations have related to payments by government programs (such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare) and by private insurance companies.

Some of Josh’s current or recent clients include lenders seeking to enforce a loan agreement and pursue their legal remedies against a group of borrowers who misappropriated and fraudulently transferred over $100M; a pharmacist and entrepreneur whose successful chain of retail and specialty pharmacies was illegally destroyed by government agents and whose civil rights lawsuit under Section 1983 and state law is scheduled for a jury trial; a physician suing a national hospital system and its local affiliate for breaching a contract; a pharmacist and several LLCs who brought federal RICO and state-law claims after being defrauded into buying multiple pharmacies and into getting a bank loan of nearly $5,000,000 to do so (for whom Josh obtained a favorable settlement weeks before trial); health care providers suing an insurance company in regard to the improper denials of their valid claims for millions of dollars' worth of payments for medical services; health care providers for whom Josh provides compliance advice; health care providers who retained Josh to conduct an internal investigation; a government official charged for alleged public corruption and money laundering offenses; and a former government employee who pled guilty to a tax offense (for whom Josh got a sentence of probation).

Josh has a strong track record of successes, including defeating the government at trials in cases where an elected official was charged with federal programs fraud and bribery and the owner of a direct marketing company was charged with violating campaign finance laws. One of Josh’s most impressive wins – an astonishing turnaround in a health care fraud case that no other attorney in the country has achieved – was featured by NPR in both a radio story and a digital story. In that case, Josh began representing the client after a jury had already found him guilty, with his sentencing weeks away. Without filing an appeal, Josh persuaded the same judge who presided over the trial to grant a new trial based on the government presenting false evidence and ultimately to dismiss the case with prejudice based on egregious government misconduct. 

After graduating with honors from Stanford Law School, Josh clerked for Judge Thomas L. Ambro on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and practiced in the D.C. offices of Covington & Burling and Womble Carlyle. Josh is a member of the Edward Bennett Williams American Inn of Court, an invitation-only professional organization in Washington, D.C. devoted to white-collar criminal practice, and has guest-lectured at Stanford Law School a number of times. In June 2019, Josh was elected a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation, an honorary society – limited to one percent of attorneys licensed to practice in the U.S. – who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in the profession and service to society. Josh was again named to the Leadership of the American Bar Association’s Health Law Section for 2023-2024. Click here for more information about Josh and his practice.
