Top prosecutors at the Broward State Attorney's office took him under their wing when he was employed as an Assistant State Attorney. Josh regularly receives compliments from Federal judges and magistrates on his legal writing abilities. He is brilliant in the court room. I've seen him easily outmaneuver other trial lawyers 20+ years his senior. Josh Padowitz learned from the best of us.
