Joseph’s interest in the law stems from his work as an LGBT advocate. Joseph came out as gay at 13 years old and quickly realized that LGBT people faced unique legal hardships. During his high school and college years, Joseph was a national ambassador for the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) and the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). He also lobbied Congress and the White House for LGBT enumerated anti-discrimination laws. In law school, Joseph continued his efforts as the Secretary of Stetson’s LGBT organization, Lambda. These experiences taught him how to be an effective and strong advocate for LGBT people.

In addition to work on behalf of the LGBT community, Joseph knows firsthand how challenging legal issues can be. He understands that many of his clients are facing some of the most difficult moments of their lives. This understanding is what pushes him to work tirelessly to support his clients. Joseph understands the stakes, and he is committed to doing what he can to help a client navigate through those difficult moments.

Joseph is originally from the Philadelphia suburbs, but now lives in Allentown. When not practicing law, Joseph enjoys spending time with family. He also enjoys traveling, Broadway, and watching Sunday football.
