Joshua J. Leonard


Joshua J. Leonard,


Joshua received his law degree from Gonzaga University School of Law in 2005, after which he accepted an Assistant City Attorney position in Boise, Idaho.  After a few years of prosecuting infraction and misdemeanor criminal cases for Boise City, Joshua was promoted to work in the Civil section of the Boise City Attorney’s Office, where he represented Boise’s Parks and Recreation Department, Planning and Zoning Commission, and City Clerk’s Office.

Joshua became a Senior Deputy City Attorney, and then the Chief Deputy City Attorney.  In that position, Joshua supervised all of the attorneys and staff in the Civil Section of the Boise City Attorney’s Office.  In addition to his supervisory responsibilities,  Joshua handled all of Boise’s major real estate transactions, represented Boise City in several large development deals, oversaw all of the city’s most difficult zoning and land use issues, and managed the city’s litigation team.

Prior to attending law school, Joshua worked on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.  Before that, he was the assistant clubhouse manager for Salt Lake City’s AAA baseball team, then called the Salt Lake Buzz (now the Salt Lake Bees), in its inaugural year. 

Josh is an avid baseball fan, and enjoys traveling with his family, particularly when the destination is a beach or a baseball stadium.
