Josh Mozell bio


A Super Lawyers Rising Stars honoree, Josh Mozell practices in the areas of estate planning, mental health law and elder law, as well as guardianships and conservatorships and contested probates, guardianships and conservatorships.

In his estate planning practice, Josh assists clients with the drafting of wills, durable powers of attorney, healthcare powers of attorney and living wills, mental health powers of attorney, and various types of trusts, including revocable trusts and special needs trusts. Josh also represents heirs, beneficiaries, fiduciaries and third parties in estate and trust litigation matters. Through the guardianship and conservatorship process, Josh assists family members seeking to protect those individuals who are no longer able to make appropriate decisions regarding their health care or finances.

In his mental health practice, Josh assist clients to understand and effectively access Arizona’s uniquely complex mental health system, and counsels clients navigating through the civil commitment process. Josh frequently helps families implement a mental health guardianship so they can properly advocate for their mentally ill loved ones. Additionally, a significant portion of Josh’s mental health practice focuses on “psychiatric boarding,” a situation in which clients are involuntarily and unlawfully held in an emergency room.

For four years after earning his undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona, Josh worked in Maricopa County’s public mental health system. Before and during law school, Josh worked nights at Maricopa County’s crisis line, the Crisis Response Network.  

Josh is a 2017 gubernatorial appointee to the AHCCCS Maricopa County Human Rights Committee; serves as vice chair of the board of Mental Health America of Arizona; is a member of the Executive Council of the State Bar’s Elder Law, Mental Health and Special Needs Planning Section; and serves on the board of governors of Recovery Empowerment Network (REN).

In his spare time, he enjoys traveling, hiking, and spending time with his wife and family.
