I met Josh while attending the nation's top DUI Blood seminar. I had heard about Josh from friends of mine who are known as the top DUI attorneys in the nation. Josh has simply taken the national DUI crowd by storm. Josh has engrained himself with the "old salts" crowd by showing a total dedication to our trade. Josh joined the NCDD, a membership of the best DUI/DWI lawyers in America. Josh shows up early and stays late, while participating and contributing to the membership. I have spent countless hours discussing DUI issues with Josh and am impressed with his tireless energy in researching, learning, practising trial strategies and getting certified in the most important area of our trade. Josh is the "face" of the up and coming DUI attoneys of the coming years. Josh has great character, moral clarity and he is honest beyond reproach. Josh is the kind of lawyer that you want protecting your family. I am the Jamie "DWI Dude" Balagia and I honored to endorse Josh as a DUI warrior.
