Joseph has been fighting for working families his entire career.  Before he opened Illinois Advocates, he worked for over 10 years with Chicago labor unions. He began his career with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters in Chicago where he represented union members in grievance hearings and arbitrations and also negotiated collective bargaining agreements. Additionally, he has served as a union trustee on Taft-Hartley benefit funds.

Joseph founded Illinois Advocates in 2012 to create a general practice firm with the strong advocacy ethic he learned through his years of experience with the Teamsters. He graduated magna cum laude from New York University and received his law degree from the Northwestern University School of Law.  He is a member of the Chicago Bar Association.

Joseph continues to serve labor unions and working families through his work at Illinois Advocates with a focus on union-side labor and employment law.

Joseph was appointed to the Illinois Workers' Compensation Advisory Board in 2016 as an Employee Representative.
