Partner – Director of Mass Torts

Joshua Harris is a Partner and Director of Mass Tort Litigation at Gomez Trial Attorneys. After spending several years at one of the nation’s most prominent mass tort firms, Josh joined Gomez Trial Attorneys to expand the types of cases the firm handles thus expanding the number of injured people the firm can assist. Josh’s practice focuses on mass torts including defective products, pharmaceutical injuries, and environmental harms.

Josh is a born-and-raised Florida native having attended the University of Florida and Stetson University College of Law. Throughout his collegiate career, Josh focused on honing his skills as a trial attorney. While attending Stetson Law, Josh was a member of the college’s #1 nationally ranked trial team and competed in numerous trial competitions throughout the country. After graduating, Josh worked for three years as a public defender and was lead counsel in over thirty trials, most of which were jury trials. Josh then became a civil plaintiff lawyer focusing on mass torts and drastically increasing the number of individuals he would be able to represent and assist through the hardest times of their lives.

As a mass torts lawyer, Josh has participated in numerous litigations involving defective devices and harmful drugs. Having been fortunate enough to learn from some of the best lawyers in the country, he was quickly able to develop his skills to effectively represent clients and ensure they were fairly and adequately compensated for the injuries caused to them by large corporations. Josh was also a member of the national opiate litigation and assigned to work up a case against one of the major distributor defendants and participate in a bellwether trial. The work performed by the national team of trial lawyers resulted in a $21 billion national settlement against the Big 3 Distributors. Josh has experience representing both individuals as well as governmental entities such as cities, counties, and even several Attorneys General.

Josh has been recognized by many organizations such as the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 and Super Lawyers as a Florida Rising Star. In addition, Josh is active in several organizations such as American Association of Justice, Florida Justice Association, and National Trial Lawyers. These organizations champion the rights of people and fight to ensure access to the courts for all. He has also been honored to speak at national mass tort conferences and has published several works covering his practice field. Ultimately, Josh believes in advocating for his clients both in and out of the courtroom.
