Josh Bonnici has always had one passion in life: to help people through life’s struggles. Whether it was travelling with his home church to Mexican orphanages, aiding classmates as a teacher’s assistant, or volunteering at a local high school for homeless teenagers, he pursues to aid those in need.
In looking towards his future, he decided in high school that becoming an attorney was his life’s choice. Josh then attended the University of California, San Diego, where he majored in Political Science and took advanced law courses prior to law school. From there, he attended Thomas Jefferson School of Law and worked for a local Plaintiff’s personal injury firm during and after his schooling. While at TJSL, he worked as a professor’s assistant, coached an award-winning alternative dispute team and took part in a volunteer teaching program, teaching homeless high school students at the Toussaint Academy in San Diego.
“My personal promise to clients is responsiveness and information sharing – if you have a question, you will be fully informed in the quickest time possible, usually within 24 hours.” Josh
Drawing from all of his experiences and education, Josh decided to open his own practice where he could focus on helping people with some of their most life-altering situations. Josh understands that navigating the legal waters in a law suit can be daunting, but is dedicated to making sure each client has their case seen through from beginning to end. Josh’s philosophy has always been that truly helping a client isn’t just through representation – but through personal attention, zealous advocacy, and transparency.
In his spare time, Josh enjoys spending time outside hiking or mountain biking, playing with his Jack Russell terrier, watching and playing baseball, weight-lifting, and trying the newest local craft beer or restaurant with his wife Julia.
