D.C. Criminal Defense Bar Welcomes Joshua Hubner
by Jamison Koehler on June 28, 2012
Joshua Hubner has left the Office of the Attorney General in D.C. to join the ranks of the District’s criminal defense attorneys. When he approached me in the hallway this morning, I assumed he wanted to talk with me about a pending case in which he was the prosecutor. Instead, he was letting me know, as a colleague, that one of my clients had been picked up on a custody order and was about to go in front of Judge Lee. I guess this means we will have to teach him the secret handshake.
Hubner is a 2006 graduate of the Frederic G. Levin College of Law at the University of Florida. He worked as an Assistant State Attorney in West Palm Beach becoming moving to D.C. Although I only tried one case against him, I knew him to be a reasonable and fair prosecutor – a worthy opponent who knew the law and who played by the rules. He will be an equally good defense lawyer.
