Joshua P. Welsh, Bush Ross Shareholder, has joined the United States Foreign Service as a Consular Officer.

Consular officers are Foreign Service Officers (FSOs) who work for the United States Department of State. They are assigned to U.S. embassies and consulates around the world. They provide a wide range of services for U.S. citizens traveling or living overseas such as maintaining their welfare, assisting in locating missing citizens, helping U.S. citizens get appropriate health care and assisting with criminal justice matters such as imprisonment.

Further, a Consular Officer’s role focuses on several key areas, including the facilitation of adoptions, assisting in the evacuation of Americans when necessary, and protecting our country’s borders against fraud.

Mr. Welsh has practiced with the firm since February of 2008, becoming a shareholder in 2015. During his time at the firm, he specialized in appellate and motion practice in a wide variety of civil litigation matters, including health care, aviation, and insurance.  Mr. Welsh has successfully handled many significant matters for Bush Ross clients over the years.

According to Mr. Welsh, “Bush Ross has been an extraordinary place to practice law. I have been blessed with great friendships and wonderful opportunities, and I will truly miss the amazing people who have made Bush Ross my home for the past nine years.”
