    Attorney Profile

    Josh Greenberg is the founder of The Josh Greenberg Law Firm PLLC in Washington, D.C. Josh’s practice focuses on white-collar criminal defense and civil litigation. Described by colleagues as “relentless” and “particularly brilliant” and by adversaries as “very zealous” and “ruthless,” Josh represents clients in government investigations and federal court proceedings across the nation. 

    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 health care providers who retained Josh to provide compliance advice, health care providers who retained Josh to conduct an internal investigation, a government contractor under investigation for alleged tax fraud and employee benefits offenses, a government official under investigation for an alleged money laundering conspiracy, a physician embroiled in a dispute with a hospital, and a corporation contemplating a constitutional challenge to the application of certain state laws.

    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 for three years running. 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 2020-2021. Click here for more information about Josh and his practice.

    Josh is licensed in D.C. and Maryland, and is also admitted to practice in the U.S. Supreme Court and several federals of appeals. He appears pro hac vice in courts where he is not admitted.
