Josh Thane is the newest partner at haltom & doan. Josh’s primary areas of practice are commercial litigation, intellectual property, and personal injury litigation, but most importantly he enjoys helping clients achieve successful results.    His preparedness and case awareness keep clients informed and eager to work with him in preparation for trial.

With several years of trial experience under his belt, Josh has played an integral role in a number of haltom & doan's successful jury verdicts in the Eastern District of Texas and the Western District of Arkansas.  He has cross-examined key corporate witnesses and argued countless pre-trial motions throughout his career.  Recently, Josh headed a team that successfully achieved summary judgment of non-infringement in the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

In addition to his demanding trial practice, Josh plays an active role in the local bar, including serving as the President of the Texarkana Bar Association from 2013 to 2014.
