Joshua Voelkel graduated from the University of Richmond in May 2019 and began working at GMA in late August. Since graduation Joshua has favorably resolved hundreds of cases for his clients.
“I’ve always wanted to enter a profession that afforded me the opportunity to help others,” Joshua says. Joshua works exclusively in the personal injury department where he prides himself on assisting his clients during a difficult period in their lives.
Born in Fairbanks, Alaska, Joshua grew up as a military brat. Relocating to five different states and attending seven different schools gave him experience building relationships with people from different backgrounds across the country. Graduating from Christopher Newport University in 2016 with a B.A. in Political Science and a minor in Philosophy and Religion, Joshua decided to follow in the footsteps of his mother, uncle, and grandfather and attend the University of Richmond School of Law.
Joshua believes in just how significant it is for attorneys to make themselves available to their clients. “Always listen intently to what the client is telling you.” He says, “I was given the advice that a lot of great attorneys will miss crucial pieces of information to a case because they would rather tell the client what to do, rather than listen to their story.” Joshua appreciates the incredible impact maintaining contact can have in minimizing the trauma of a client’s experience.
Joshua resides in Richmond, VA. with his wife Maegan, and Boston Terrier, Harvey. While outside of the office you can find him blowing off steam through physical activity. Whether it’s going for a run, playing a round of golf or basketball, Joshua enjoys leading an active lifestyle in order to keep disciplined and stay healthy.
