Attorney Joshua G. Kesling

Joshua Gene Kesling graduated from The University of Alabama in 2002, with a degree in Religion and English. He went on to attend The Appalachian School of Law, where he graduated with a Juris Doctor degree in 2007.

After law school, Josh moved to Orange Beach, Alabama, and began working under his late mentor, P. Richard Hartley, as an associate attorney at the law firm of Hartley and Hickman. He quickly joined the Orange Beach Lions Club, where he would eventually be distinguished as the Lion of the Year, serve two terms as vice president, and four terms as president.

Josh served as legal counsel for The Coastal Baldwin Educational Enrichment Foundation from 2014-2018, and for The South Alabama Volunteer Lawyer’s Program from 2012-present. He is in his seventeenth year of practice in Orange Beach, Alabama, where he lives with his son, Grey.

Your rights matter, and I'm prepared to fight for them through the legal process.
