Joseph Altschul is an attorney practicing law in South Florida for more than 24 years and the owner of Trinity Title and Escrow, LLC. They have been loyal Good News advertisers for eight years.
Trinity Title focuses on all types of real estate transactions including purchases, sales and refinances of residential, commercial and investment properties.
Joseph’s law firm offers legal counsel, from a biblical perspective, in all aspects of business and real estate. This includes real estate litigation, such as foreclosures and contract disputes, and business law inclusive of incorporations, transactions, purchases and sales of businesses and business disputes.
Before attending law school, Joseph worked as a commercial real estate broker specializing in office buildings and office properties. This provided him with invaluable experience, perspective and understanding of the real estate industry. Originally intending to become a real estate developer, Joe detoured when he discovered a passion for trial and appellate advocacy.
Joseph proudly served in the United States Army Reserves for 10 years where he was a captain in the infantry. He completed basic training at Ft. Dix, NJ, and subsequently completed Airborne school and the Infantry Officer’s Basic Course at Fort Benning, Georgia. The military was a natural step for Joseph, having been born in an Army hospital in Honolulu and raised an “Army Brat” on military bases. His travels included residences in Germany and Tehran, Iran during his youth.
He began college at the University of New Hampshire, where he was a member of the varsity wrestling team and the Reserve Officer Training Corp (ROTC). Joseph later transferred to Florida Atlantic University, where he graduated with a degree in business finance and real estate in 1985. In 1990, he graduated from the University of Miami School of Law in the top 8% of his class, where he was an editor of the University of Miami Law Review and was on winning teams in the moot court and mock trial competitions. A past-president of the Rotary Club of Weston, he currently serves as the district chairman for annual giving to the Rotary Foundation.
Joseph and his wife, Irina Altschul, attend Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale where he is a deacon. They previously attended the Calvary Chapel Bible Institute, and Joseph has taught classes in Calvary’s Christianity 101 program as well as the Ravi Zacharias School of Apologetics (RZSA), which are courses designed to equip Christians to “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have…with gentleness and respect,” as commanded in 1 Peter 3:15.
Joseph and Irina have been married for 13 years and have three-year-old twins. Joseph also has a son and daughter in their early twenties.
His favorite Bible verses are Joshua 24:15 (“But if you refuse to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve.… But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord”) and Colossians 3:17 and 3:23 (“And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father. . . . Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people”).
Joseph’s passion is using his vocation to share the gospel message and to be a light to others in their times of darkness. He is committed to supporting ministry, including Calvary Chapel, REACH FM and the Good News, and to honoring Christ through professional excellence. To learn more, visit www.josephaltschu
