Joseph Levesque graduated from Seattle University School of Law in 1986 and began working as a prosecutor for the Alaska District Attorney's office in Kenai. Mr. Levesque served as Borough Attorney at the North Slope Borough and has since focused his practice representing Alaskan municipalities.
Mr. Levesque established Levesque Law Group, LLC in 2012 following two decades of providing legal representation to municipal and private clients throughout Alaska. The Firm was founded on a simply philosophy: That clients from every sector have the right to successful, competent and effective legal services, and that the quality of those services should never differ according to the client's size or standing within a community.
Having lived and represented parties in some of Alaska's largest, smallest, and most remote communities, Mr. Levesque understands that the needs of his clients differ in as many ways as Alaska's people. Because of this Levesque Law Group, LLC is dedicated to ensuring that each of its clients' particular interests always guide the scope of their representation.
Attorney Levesque is a licensed member of both the Alaska and Washington State Bar Associations, as well as a member of the National Association of Bond Lawyers.
