At Hofstra Law School, Joseph distinguished himself for his involvement in trial advocacy work and upon graduation was honored with both the New York State Bar Association Law Student Legal Ethics Award and the Hofstra Law Service to the School Award. His continuing commitment to the highest standard of ethical behavior has been recognized with his appointments to both the Grievance Committee and the Judiciary Committee of the Nassau County Bar Association.

In his second year after law school James joined a firm with a significant matrimonial law practice. For the next several years he focused primarily on matrimonial law. (This time included a period in which he served in the New York State Senate as Chief Counsel to an old friend, Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr.).

In 1998, he decided to launch his own practice – a decision that reflected an intensity and ambition many attorneys do not possess. “I have very high professional standards and only through my own firm could I ensure that my staff and my associates shared these standards.” Today, Joseph Law Group, P.C., has five attorneys and a support staff of five and practices solely in the areas of divorce and family law.
