Joel W. Habberstad

Mr. Habberstad joins Jones, Skelton & Hochuli as an Associate, where he will focus his practice on transportation and general liability defense. Mr. Habberstad grew up in The Dalles, Oregon, a small town on the eastern end of the Columbia River Gorge. He attended Washington State University where he received degrees in Finance and Risk Management. Mr. Habberstad was a sales professional in the financial services industry prior to attending law school at Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. While in law school, he was a legal extern for the United States Attorney’s office, District of Arizona and the honorable Judge Orozco of the Arizona Court of Appeals.

Mr. Habberstad held a number of interesting positions prior to joining the firm, including his time as a white water rafting guide in Oregon and a Bering Sea commercial fisherman based out of Dutch Harbor, Alaska. Fortunately, he no longer has to fish for a living and is now a purely recreational fisherman. Mr. Habberstad also enjoys hunting, skydiving, and snowboarding when he is not in the office.
