Originally from Nova Scotia, Joseph graduated from Queen’s University with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in philosophy (Dean’s list) before attending law school at the University of Victoria.

Joseph is a strong advocate for his clients, allowing them to focus on their recovery. He helps his clients understand the legal system and their case so they can make informed and confident decisions. He ensures his clients receive reasoned recommendations on the best course of action at every step. He has a particular interest in cases involving concussions and moderate to severe brain injuries. He regularly handles some of the firm’s most complicated claims, including claims with challenging liability scenarios.

Before joining Preszler Injury Lawyers, Joseph practiced with two prominent litigation firms in Vancouver, British Columbia. He has also worked for the Office of the Ombudsperson, the Residential Tenancy Branch, the Ministry of Attorney General and a legal clinic that provides free legal representation to people with low incomes.

Joseph has considerable court experience. He has conducted and won numerous trials (with both judge alone and judge and jury) and regularly appears in court. Joseph was counsel at trial and on appeal in R. v. Nwanebu, 2014 BCCA 387, a precedent setting case in Canada on the defence of necessity. He was also co-counsel at trial in Dickinson v. Jeffs, a personal injury case where the jury awarded his client $1.4 million in damages. Other recent decisions include Pisani v. Pearce, 2012 BCSC 1118; Turner v. Dos Santos, 2012 BCSC 1382; and, Amini v. Khania, 2014 BCSC 1671. He recently attended the Supreme Court of Canada on Saadati v. Moorhead, on a case concerning the scope and threshold of compensable psychological injuries. More information on the Saadati decision can be found here: https://www.preszlerlaw.com/blog/saadati-v-moorhead/. In 2021, he attended trial on behalf a client with chronic pain -- part-way through the trial the insurance company offered more than $1M above their pre-trial settlement offer (which was also more than Joseph’s client offered to settle for before the trial began).*

Joseph has written for Reasonable Doubt, a legal column that appeared in NOW Magazine and The Georgia Straight. He has contributed to CTV’s expert hour on personal injury topics and has appeared on CBC discussing a variety of legal topics. He contributes to continuing legal education seminars for lawyers and paralegals and offers pro bono legal services to young people from foster care.

Outside of the office, Joseph enjoys canoeing, dog rescue and spending time with his wife and two sons.
