Josh Gajer is an experienced litigator and a tenacious advocate who is committed to achieving the best possible results for his clients. As a former criminal prosecutor, Josh understands how important an early and thorough investigation is to the favorable resolution of any matter, no matter how big or small. Josh focuses his practice on complex matters, including medical malpractice litigation and general liability matters as well as white collar criminal defense and internal investigations. He represents hospitals, physicians, nurses and other healthcare practitioners against professional liability claims and corporate clients in connection with fraud related litigation and investigations, including internal investigations, criminal and regulatory enforcement and insurance fraud.

Prior to joining the firm, Josh worked as a criminal prosecutor at the Miami-Dade Office of the State Attorney. As an Assistant State Attorney, Josh tried approximately 30 jury trials and 100 bench trials including many complex cases involving conspiracies, insurance fraud, larcenies and other significant financial crimes. As a prosecutor, Josh also served as a member of the State Attorney’s Multi-Agency Gang Task Force responsible for coordinating federal and state investigations and prosecutions of Miami’s most dangerous and sophisticated criminal organizations engaged in complicated schemes to defraud.

Recognition & Involvement

As a prosecutor, Josh was awarded Mothers Against Drunk Driving's (MADD) Excellence in Prosecution Award for his efforts developing an effective office-wide strategy to defeat novel defense motions to exclude scientific evidence in DUI cases.
