Josh Vittor focuses his practice on complex litigation matters. He is particularly interested in trial practice. In addition to litigation work, Mr. Vittor has significant experience working on sensitive internal and government-facing investigations involving a wide range of legal issues.

Mr. Vittor clerked for the Honorable John A. Kronstadt of the US District Court for the Central District of California.

Mr. Vittor previously worked at the firm as a summer associate. While pursuing his law degree, he served as a legal intern in the Trial Division of the Massachusetts Office of the Attorney General, for the Honorable Kenneth Fishman of the Massachusetts Superior Court, and in the Civil Division of the US Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York.

Before law school, Mr. Vittor worked as a legal assistant at J.D. Power and Associates in Shanghai and a legal paralegal at a Washington DC law firm. As a paralegal, Mr. Vittor was a part of four jury trial teams in both state and federal courts around the country.
