Joseph is a managing partner with Preszler Injury Lawyers BC.

Originally from Nova Scotia, Joseph attended Queen’s University for his Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree in philosophy where he graduated on the Dean’s list. He attended law school at the University of Victoria.

Joseph believes in the careful, assertive representation of his clients. He appreciates that most of his clients are new to the legal system, and so he places a high priority on educating them about their case, keeping them informed each step along the way, and giving reliable, well-researched legal advice.

Earlier in his career, Joseph practiced with two prominent law firms in Vancouver, British Columbia where he conducted and won numerous trials and court applications. He was counsel at trial and on appeal in R. v. Nwanebu, 2014 BCCA 387, a case that made new law in Canada. Joseph has experience before judge alone and jury trials, including as co-counsel on a five-week jury trial where his client received a $1.4M award. He attended the Supreme Court of Canada with Dairn Shane on Saadati v. Moorhead, a case dealing with the boundaries of compensable psychological injuries. He was lead counsel on a chronic pain trial where the insurance company tried to settle mid-trial by offering more than $1M over their pre-trial offer to settle (which was also more than the client’s offer to settle before trial). More recently, in 2022, he received reasons on Lee v. MacLean, where he recovered $2.87M for his client as lead trial counsel. *

Joseph handles some of the firm’s largest and most complicated claims. He regularly handles and wins claims involving occupiers' liability disputes. He has a particular interest in claims with tricky liability disputes, historic sexual assault claims, and claims involving extra-contractual damages against long-term disability insurers. **

Joseph has written on access to justice for the legal column, Reasonable Doubt, both in The Georgia Straight and NOW Magazine. Joseph continues to lead seminars for lawyers and paralegals on legal education. He provides pro-bono legal services to young people from foster care.

In his personal life, Joseph enjoys cooking with his wife and spending time with his two sons.
