Joel Habberstad focuses his practice on transportation and general liability defense.

While in law school, he was a legal extern for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, District of Arizona, and the Hon. Judge Orozco of the Arizona Court of Appeals. Before pursuing his law degree, Joel worked as a sales professional in the financial services industry.

Joel grew up in The Dalles, Oregon, a small town on the eastern end of the Columbia River Gorge. Before joining the firm, he was 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. Joel also enjoys hunting, skydiving and snowboarding.
