Joe is a partner in the firm's San Francisco office focusing on litigation, both trial and appellate. He has represented parties in federal and state courts throughout California.

He clerked in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. He graduated from UCLA with honors and the University of California, School of Law. Joe is active in civic and professional groups. For the past several years, he has been a director of Levitt & Quinn Family Law Center, a legal services provider founded by his grandmother. He is the proud recipient of several professional honors, including the Crusader Award from the California Alliance for Pride and Equality, now Equality California.
