Joshua R. Van Kampen is the founder and leader of Van Kampen Law, PC in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Josh’s career as an employment lawyer began in Chicago, Illinois, where from 1998 to 2004 he worked as an Associate at two nationally recognized employment law defense firms: Seyfarth Shaw and Franczek Sullivan. During his six years as a defense attorney, Josh defended Fortune 500 companies as well as smaller businesses in age, race, sex, disability, sexual harassment, traditional labor, and wage and hour litigation. Josh’s defense experience also included counseling employers on litigation avoidance and sexual harassment training.

In 2004, Josh left a safe and lucrative career as a management-side attorney, to open a practice in Charlotte devoted exclusively to representing victims of discrimination, sexual harassment, unequal pay, wrongful discharge, retaliation, and wage and hour violations. It was the best decision he ever made.

Prior to forming Van Kampen Law, PC in July 2011, Josh was a partner at two of the premier, plaintiff-side employment law firms in North Carolina: Fosbinder & Van Kampen, PLLC and Patterson Harkavy, LLP.
