Joshua Neetz - Director of Marketing and Finance

What kind of work do you do at Hemminger Law Group Westshore?

My daily job duties range from anything to do with business development, marketing, IT, administrative duties, all the way to accounting. I am all over the map. I am the go to guy of all odd jobs to help the office run efficiently, and ultimately help our clients effectively. 

(Josh does not actually look exactly as above, but his last photo is, well, not good. So, we thought we would put in a very cute picture of Val's dog, Inu, in his place until he gets his photo taken already).

If there was one lesson you learned as a young person that you would like to pass on to others, what would that be?

Always take a step back and question all you are told, despite the popular paradigm. Take the experiences that you have witnessed, and make the most educated decision you can. Have logical reasons to back up your ideas and thoughts. Just because someone is in an authoritative position does not mean they are necessarily right. Believe nothing you hear, and half of what you see. Challenge everything, learn and grow.

What is your home town? 

I grew up in Mission, British Columbia.

What do you love most about Langford and the Westshore?

Being from a small town, and I have witnessed the loyalty, love, and legacy that such an environment can create, and I see these qualities in Langford and surrounding areas. 

Where are your top 3 favorite places and why?

1 - Camping with my puppy partner in crime, Nova, by the ocean, lake, or any body of water. It is peaceful, carefree, and there are no screens so I can get away from "it all",

2 -  With my family when ever possible,

3 - in front of a speaker enjoying some live music somewhere in Victoria or Vancouver.

Outside of the legal profession what is your passion?

I enjoy spending time with my dog, Nova. I also enjoy music of all types, excluding country, and enjoy checking out Victoria's local talent. If I am not at home or out with Nova, you can probably find me dancing in front of a speaker somewhere in town.

What is your spirit animal?

A dinosaur; probably a Omnomnomivore, considering I usually like everything and everyone.
