Following the footsteps of his father and grandfather, Joshua B. Dion brings a new generation of legal expertise to Dion, Solomon, & Shapiro. Although the firm’s newest member after joining the team in early 2023, Joshua’s steadfast compassion for the “little guy”—along with a keen legal sense—has already proven a tremendous asset to the practice, where he routinely represents individuals who have been injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident or a slip and fall due to hazardous conditions. Joshua prides himself on building relationships with each and every client.
Growing up amongst a family of lawyers, the happenings of personal injury law were commonplace dinner table discussions. These conversations sparked Joshua’s passion in the field, and following undergrad at the University of Delaware, he enrolled in Drexel University’s Thomas R. Kline School of Law. It was there that he found his love of litigation, when he enrolled in Drexel’s Trial Advocacy course.
While attending Drexel, Joshua served as a judicial intern for the Honorable Ramy I. Djerassi within the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas. As a judicial intern, along with sharpening his legal research and writing skills, Joshua had the opportunity to observe a two-week jury trial. This experience reconfirmed his interest and desire in pursuing a career as a litigator, and cemented his passion and desire to fight and stand up for victims. During his time at Drexel University’s Thomas R. Kline School of Law, Josh also had the opportunity and privilege of offering pro bono legal assistance through the Christian Legal Clinics of Philadelphia (CLCP). While volunteering with CLCP, he obtained firsthand experience in working with clients to overcome a wide variety of legal issues.
Outside of the office, Joshua loves to travel, spend time with family and friends, and watch or play whatever sport is available at the time. It goes without saying, Joshua is an avid sports fan and can often be spotted at the Wells Fargo Center cheering on the 76ers or on the tennis court perfecting his serve.
