DUI Defense

We list this area of the law separate from Criminal Defense because we believe that it is its own speciality area. Many attorneys make the mistake of believing that just because they are criminal defense attorneys that they can properly handle a DUI/DWI charge. They are wrong. Don’t make the same mistake. Call us for an appointment and see for yourself, very few attorneys can stack up to us, especially in this area.

There is no greater compliment that we can receive from our clients than a referral to a friend or loved one. The confidence that you show in our firm is all the motivation we require.

“I would personally like to thank Josh, along with his law firm. Josh is honest, dedicated and consistent. Never gave me the run around always kept things straight forward with me. I’ve dealt with countless lawyers/attorneys, I’ve never met anyone like Josh Lee.”

“It was a very good experience with Josh. He is a smart man. He knows what to do and when to do it. He is always here to help out with anything you need. I had two drug charges both felonies and eluding over a couple years. Josh is so good he got most all of it dropped and I ended up with no convictions. This man is the one to pick.”

“After meeting with him and several other attorneys the choice became quite clear: he was the man for the job. His knowledge and drive was not matched by the other attorneys. It turned out that he found some things that helped my case and I ended up putting this thing behind me quickly. So don’t let his young appearance fool you, he is very good.”
