Joshua Silk is one of the few people in Atlanta who can actually claim to be an Atlanta-native. After graduating from The Galloway School, he completed his undergraduate education at Syracuse University, graduating cum laude with a dual major in History and Political Science. He received his J.D., magna cum laude, from the University of Georgia School of Law in 2011, where he served on the Editorial Board and as a Notes Editor for the Georgia Law Review. He also served as a teaching assistant for Civil Procedure. Silk was elected to the Order of the Coif. This recognition is only bestowed on students who graduate at the very top of their law school class.
After law school, he served a 2-year term as a Staff Attorney with the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. Since that time, Silk has focused on cases involving medical malpractice, catastrophic injuries resulting from trucking wrecks, products liability, constitutional torts, and class actions. He has written extensively about whistleblower protection, emerging healthcare issues and the law, and voting rights.
He is admitted to practice in all Georgia trial and appellate courts as well as the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
He lives in Candler Park with his wife, Megan.
