Joshua J. Baumgart


My practice is primarily based in the general ligation section, where I have assisted in workers’ compensation disputes, employment law, and health care law. I have also assisted in family law disputes, criminal law, and administrative law matters. I strive to achieve the most positive outcome possible for clients while also creating lasting relationships.
