Indianapolis, Indiana

Josh Tatum focuses much of his practice on appeals and nonprofit organizations. He has participated in more than fifty appeals as an advocate in Indiana appellate courts, the U.S. Supreme Court, and lower federal appellate courts for the Sixth, Seventh, and Eleventh circuits. Before entering private practice, he spent two years working closely with the Chief Justice of Indiana. Josh actively participates as a member of Indiana's appellate bar. He serves in leadership of the appellate sections of both the Indiana State Bar Association and the Indianapolis Bar Association. He chairs the Indiana Appellate Institute, a program of the Indianapolis Bar Association's Appellate Practice Section that provides panels of volunteer judges to moot cases for lawyers preparing for appellate arguments. He also serves on the amicus committee for the Indianapolis Bar Association's appellate practice section, which regularly files amicus briefs on questions of Indiana procedure. And he led the most recent update to the Indiana State Bar Association's guide for pro se litigants with cases before Indiana's appellate courts. Josh advises religious organizations and other nonprofits on a variety of legal issues including employment issues, taxes, zoning, landlord-tenant, and corporate governance. He began a weekly podcast in 2016 covering legal issues for faith communities called Law Meets Gospel, which is also the name of his blog. In addition, Josh represents businesses in employment matters, environmental issues, insurance coverage, and commercial law.
