 Josh Mintz

Josh started at Mintz & Geftic by playing with the office typewriters as a young child when he would accompany his father to work. However, he officially joined our firm in a professional capacity early in 2016 as our Manager of Marketing and Finance.

After high school Josh ventured out to the desert Southwest, earning a bachelor’s degree at Arizona State University and then residing in the Phoenix area for nearly 20 years. Over his time in the Grand Canyon state, Josh started a family of his own while establishing a successful career in technology, sales and marketing.

Over the course of this career, Josh won several awards in sales and marketing. These awards included being named among the top 5 sales associates for a global Fortune 500 company three years in a row!

Josh and his family moved back to the east coast late in 2015 and the law firm was thrilled to bring him aboard. With Josh’s background and expertise, he has helped establish Mintz & Geftic’s digital presence while playing a key role in continuing the firm’s growth.

When he isn’t working, Josh enjoys spending time with his wife Jamie and two children.


Bryan is the best lawyer around. Had great experience of being a client. Always kept me informed on what was going on by email or telephone. Very hard worker and dedicated to his cases.


Thank you very much, Jeffrey, for all your efforts in settling my case for more than I imagined. I appreciate that you made it as easy for me as possible.

Jeffrey Strauss is a professional, compassionate, man of integrity. He far surpassed any preconceived notions I had two previous experiences with the profession. He listens, cares, is honest and will bring you his years of experience as to the best course to follow. He works hard with your best interests at heart. I strongly recommend him. He is a pleasure to deal with and comforting to have him by your side when feeling vulnerable.


After I was struck and injured in a motor vehicle accident, I retained Jeffrey Strauss to represent me. Throughout this difficult time in my life, Jeffrey Strauss was by my side, and always one step ahead, working tirelessly on my behalf. He was dogged in his pursuit of the medical evidence and opinions that eventually secured a large settlement in my case. Mr. Strauss’ life sciences background combined with his legal expertise was not only a powerful force legally, but a great comfort to me as I dealt with my injuries — he explained every finding and step thoroughly, answered and anticipated my questions and concerns, and always responded to my calls quickly and personally. His concern for my welfare was sincere and his hard work enabled me to get on with my life.


Bryan is an exceptional person and a great attorney. He was there for me every step of the way through my lawsuit. He was patient in the process and was able to get a better outcome than expected . He is personable and will take his time to return calls and email. I couldn’t be happier with the result.

My wife and I have the highest regard for the legal services of attorney, Jeff Strauss. Several years ago, I fell over a pothole, which was covered with rain and snow, and which the township had neglected to repair. I hurt my back and fractured my right femur. Jeff’s team of professionals were able to prove that the pothole was neglected. I received a fair settlement, out of court, for pain and suffering. Jeff earned our confidence the first time we met him. His knowledge of law, as well as medicine, makes him a true expert in his field. His demeanor, professionalism, and extraordinary communication skills made the process a positive one. Jeff is the first person that my family would call, if we need a lawyer in the future.


Jeffrey Strauss is a professional, compassionate, man of integrity. He listens, cares, is honest and will bring you his years of experience to guide you as to the best course of action to follow. He works hard, always with your best interests at heart. Mr. Strauss referred me to a doctor who has been invaluable to my treatment and recovery, as he is very knowledgeable of many in the medical profession. I strongly recommend him. He is a pleasure to deal with and comforting to have by your side when feeling most vulnerable.

I consulted with the attorneys at Mintz & Geftic after I was injured in a serious accident on the Garden State Parkway. I suffered numerous injuries and a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, and the lawyers at Mintz & Geftic made sure I understood everything going on. The case was scheduled for trial on numerous occasions and each time the attorneys spent days and long weekends preparing for trial. They were going to make sure I received a large recovery for the injuries I suffered. The case ultimately settled just before we began the trial. I am so pleased with the result that they obtained for me, and can’t thank them enough for the time and energy they put into my case.

James G.

Marty has been my lawyer for a long time on numerous cases and they will get results. They are a very experienced firm and anyone who needs an attorney better write the phone number down now.  Even if you don’t need a good attorney, write the number down!  You never know when you will need a good attorney.
