West Point graduate Josh Kurtzman took a slight detour on his way to becoming an attorney. Specifically, he served for a decade as an infantry officer in the 101st Airborne and the 75th Ranger Regiment of the U.S. Army and spent four of those years on active duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. In other words, it takes more than a stern look from a judge or opposing counsel to shake his confidence or weaken his resolve.
Josh’s experiences during his army career sharpened his leadership skills, deepened his resolve to serve others and convinced him that his next job had to be one where he could remain as fully engaged and challenged as he had been in the military. Of course, he chose corporate law, where his ability to remain calm and focused in the face of even the most chaotic circumstances continues to serve him well.
Although the legal world is somewhat less daunting than some of the other places he’s been, the challenges he has encountered so far, as he helps his clients navigate their way successfully through complex issues of product liability, commercial litigation and white-collar defense, have convinced him that he’s still where he needs to be and doing what needs to be done.
