Joshua A. Glickman has extensive experience handling all aspects of direct and appellate litigation in state and federal court, specializing in class action civil rights litigation and the representation of incarcerated individuals.  Prior to forming SJLC, Josh worked with fellow-SJLC founder Shawn Heller as an attorney at the Florida Justice Institute (FJI), a private, not-for-profit public interest litigation firm in Miami, where he worked on major, systemic civil rights litigation throughout the state of Florida, primarily on behalf of those incarcerated in Florida’s prisons and jails.

 

Josh received his J.D. from Washington University School of Law in St. Louis, Missouri, and received his B.A. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  While attending law school, Josh worked with the Commission on Safety and Abuse in America’s Prisons, a national, blue-ribbon prison commission co-chaired by former U.S. Attorney General Nicholas de B. Katzenbach and the Honorable John Gibbons, exploring effective methods to make correctional facilities safer for both prisoners and staff.  Josh has also served in the U.S. House of Representatives, as a Legal Fellow for U.S. Congressman John Conyers, Jr. on the Committee on the Judiciary, Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security.
