Description: Joseph Chu at Ladah Law Firm, PLLC
A native New Yorker, Joe moved to Las Vegas from Philadelphia in 2007 after graduating from the Villanova University School of Law. After spending a year in the Clark County District Attorney’s Criminal Appeals Division, Joe entered private practice and commenced his career as a civil litigator. Joe subsequently joined one of the largest insurance defense firms in the country, where he served as a senior associate for more than five years primarily handling the firm’s high-value personal injury, employment, and administrative law matters. During that time, Joe carved out a reputation as one of the most effective legal writers in the community, while also continuing to hone his respected oration and advocacy skills.
Joe prides himself on approaching all cases in an aggressive, but personable manner — a style which has yielded consistently favorable results for his clients throughout his 8+ years of practice. These results led to Joe being selected as a 2016 Rising Star by Super Lawyers Magazine (a designation awarded to just 2.5% of attorneys in each state). Joe ultimately left the insurance defense world and joined Ladah Law Firm in order to take full advantage of his most vital skillset: his ability to personally connect with – and successfully advocate for – people of all walks of life.
