Joshua M. Feneis / Biography

Josh understands that going through the Court process is undoubtedly the most stressful time in a client’s life. As an experienced litigator licensed to practice in both Minnesota and North Dakota, he works zealously to advocate for his clients and gain an understanding of each case so that he can exert his greatest efforts on his clients’ behalf. Clients appreciate that Josh logically and concisely explains the options available so that they know what to expect. When client choices are made, he works tirelessly to protect their interests and bring about the best results possible.

He has represented a wide array of clients in diverse cases such as high asset divorces, large real estate disputes, fair business practice disputes and commercial contract disputes. Josh focuses primarily in the areas of divorce, custody, business litigation for both small businesses and large corporations, real estate litigation and contract litigation, but handles many other types of litigation.

Josh has been recognized as a 2021 Rising Star by Minnesota Super Lawyers and as a 2018 Rising Star by Great Plains Super Lawyers.  He is an active volunteer with the Volunteer Lawyers Network and held several clinics for them in 2020. 

Prior to joining Lommen Abdo, Josh practiced in Fargo, North Dakota and clerked for the Honorable Jay D. Carlson in Minnesota’s Seventh Judicial District. 

Outside of his practice, Josh is a long-time season ticket holder of the University of Minnesota’s football and basketball teams. He enjoys the fact that he is now able to walk from his office to watch Twins games in the spring and summer. Josh also enjoys spending time with his family, swimming, and attempting to learn golf from his wife, who he says is much more talented than he is.
