Josh Garrett grew up in Ozark, Missouri and spent many years running political campaigns throughout the country. When the time was right for him and his family, he took the next step toward the goal of practicing law, however the advocacy, public speaking, and strategic skills he developed as a political consultant translate perfectly to the courtroom. That is experience that sets him apart. He believes that what wins a case is the strategy that is unique to your situation.
By taking the maximum allowable amount of credits, participating in several trial advocacy teams, and working dawn to dusk, Josh was one of the few able to graduate the prestigious Washburn University School of Law in only two years. Since then, he has moved back to Southwest Missouri and has practiced in the Branson area for the past three years, taking and winning hundreds of cases from criminal defense to personal injury and family law.
From working at Smith Law Firm in Branson to opening his own practice, Josh has represented Southwest Missouri clients in hundreds of different types of cases. He lives in Springfield with his wife Lara and two children, Benjamin and Madeline. When he does have spare time, you can find him with his family in their camper or hiking and exploring the majestic outdoors of Southwest Missouri and Northwest Arkansas.
