Josiah joined Witwer, Oldenburg, Barry & Groom in 2015.  Prior to beginning law school in 2005, Josiah gained experience in the oil and gas industry by working with his family’s small oil and gas business in Houston, Texas.  After completing law school in 2008, Josiah joined the land department at Exxon Mobil.  There, he handled lease matters and title transactions, primarily centered in the historic oil fields of deep East Texas.  He also participated in the complex Talco Field unitization project, which spanned large swaths of Franklin and Titus Counties, Texas.  After several years with Exxon, Josiah transitioned to private practice, where he focused on upstream oil and gas operations.  He has authored numerous original title opinions, drilling and division order title opinions, supplemental title opinions, etc.  Today, Josiah remains actively involved in oil and gas matters, as well as various other areas of law helpful to the businesses and residents of Weld County, Colorado.
