Grube to leave D.A.'s office
ELKHORN – Deputy District Attorney Joshua Grube will be leaving the Walworth County District Attorney's Office for position at a Janesville law firm June 13, according to a news release from the Walworth County District Attorney Dan Necci's office.
“It has been my great privilege to work alongside Josh here in our office,” Necci said in the release. “He is a fixture in the courthouse and our community that will be sorely missed. He has truly made a mark here in Walworth County with his tremendous passion for justice. I, for one, will miss him, and I wish him and his family nothing but the best as he begins this new chapter in his life.”
Grube handled many caseloads for the D.A.'s office over his 11 years, particularly sensitive crimes. Grube was also instrumental in the formation of the Walworth County Children's Advocacy Center and the Walworth County Boys and Girls Club.
Of his time in the Walworth County D.A.'s Office, Grube said, “It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to leave State service to explore a new opportunity for me and my family in the private sector. Words cannot express the pride, personal fulfillment and satisfaction I have experienced over my 11 years as a prosecutor. This was a terribly difficult decision, but one that I believe is best for me and my family.”
In the release, Grube thanked his co-workers, those with the Walworth County Alliance for Children, those
in the law enforcement community, and the citizens of Walworth County.
“Thank you to the citizens of Walworth County. It was a pleasure and honor to serve you these 11 years,” he said.
Grube lives in Janesville and will be working at the Brennan Steil law firm in downtown Janesville handling criminal and civil litigation, said Michael Grubb, shareholder in the law firm.
"We're excited to have Josh--someone with the years of experience he has," Grubb said. "It's rare to find somebody whose out and available to add to your firm like that. We're happy and excited to get him on board."
