About Phoenix Criminal Defense Lawyer Josh Kolsrud

Federal defense attorney Josh Kolsrud has practiced criminal law since 2006, when he began prosecuting juveniles as a third-year law student. Since then, Josh has tried over 100 trials, including winning jury trials in Maricopa County, Coconino County, U.S. Federal District Court of Arizona, and internationally in the Republic of Palau.

Josh began his legal career handling thousands of felony cases at the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office for over five years. Josh was awarded the “Attorney of the Month” award several times for his outstanding trial work. Josh was promoted to Major Crimes and spent two years at the Repetitive Offender Bureau.

Josh then headed to the South Pacific working for the tiny island-nation of the Republic of Palau. Palau’s attorney general heard about Josh’s reputation as an aggressive trial attorney and recruited Josh to spearhead an anti-human sex trafficking operation.
