Jozef was called to the respective Bars of Queensland (Australia) and England & Wales (United Kingdom) in 2023, and currently practises in Queensland.
He accepts briefs in all areas of the law, with a particular focus on commercial and public law.
Prior to call and following a 2015 admission in the Supreme Court of Queensland as the youngest lawyer in Southern Hemisphere history that received international coverage and earned him a congressional commendation from the House of Representatives of the Republic of the Philippines, Jozef practised for three years as a solicitor specialised in commercial dispute resolution. As a solicitor, he represented clients in a broad range of matters spanning contractual and property disputes through guardianship contentions and winding up applications to debt recovery and defamation suits.
After graduating from a Master of Laws specialised in Public International Law with High Distinction at the Australian National University, he completed the prestigious Master’s Degree in Corporate Law at the University of Cambridge in 2021.
Before commencing at the Bar, Jozef successfully swept a gauntlet of rigorous standardised bar examinations around the world, consisting of those for admission in the jurisdictions of New York (United States of America), England and Wales (United Kingdom), and Queensland (Australia), certifying his conversance with principles of public, civil, and criminal law in each of the three jurisdictions.
