A personal note from Josh:

West Palm Criminal Lawyer Josh LeRoyThis firm carries my name. Every case is taken very seriously, and every client is treated as if they were my only client. How it performs in court, how clients remember it, is my signature.

It is my legacy to my children.

Your concerns, questions and fears are important to me. I do my best to prepare you for all eventualities. The only thing worse than going through the criminal justice system, is going through it unprepared and alone.

Rates are affordable compared to others you will find because I personally handle every case. I am your attorney. I draft and argue Motions. I appear in court. I personally return calls. If you need me, you get me – not an assistant, secretary, paralegal or junior associate.

Be wary of criminal defense lawyers who misrepresent facts or the law to entice you to sign a retainer only to later reveal the “truth” of your case – and its true cost. We openly discuss your situation, your choices and strategize accordingly.

Since you’re reading this, I’d venture a guess either you, or someone you’re close with, needs an attorney. You’ve taken the first step and started to research your options. That’s good. you must be proactive in your defense at all times.

Take the next step, keep that forward momentum! The longer you take to find counsel the harder your case becomes. Drop me a note and let me know what the problem is.

It shaped me into an formidable trial attorney and perfected my skills as a creative legal researcher and writer. I developed a special talent for finding details other criminal attorneys regularly miss that gives me an edge in defending my clients. I am regularly hired to replace other lawyers.

  • DUI Defense: Hiring a Palm Beach County DUI attorney

    We all make mistakes. In fact, several judges were arrested and charged with DUI. Good people can make bad mistakes – just as police often make mistakes during arrests.

    The vast majority of my many DUI cases have ended favorably. My experience, combined with close attention to detail I devote to my cases, often reveals details overlooked by others. Details that allowed me to successfully argue Motions to Suppress Evidence, or negotiate plea agreements, that reduced many first offense DUI charges to just Reckless Driving, a misdemeanor.

    It’s true, “to err is human”, but I also firmly believe that those mistakes are the source for some of the greatest lessens we learn in life. In short, mistakes are an essential part of personal, and cultural growth. That is why I don’t believe a mistake, yours or that of overzealous officers, should have a negative impact on your entire life.

    You need an experienced West Palm Beach DUI Attorney on your side

    If you’ve made the mistake of driving while under the influence or have been accused of such by an officer contact me for a free consult. Don’t exacerbate an already stressful experience by not getting yourself the best West Palm Beach DUI attorney possible.

  • Marijuana Possession & Paraphernalia

    Mary Jane, Marijuana, pot, weed, cannabis, chronic, krypy, or whatever name you prefer, is illegal in Florida. Punishments for less than 20 grams start at up to a year in jail, plus a $1,000 fine, and mandatory driver’s license suspension.

    So, you’ve been charged with marijuana possession? My career as a West Palm Beach Criminal Attorney has a solid track record with drug possession charges. Chances are I can get your charges dismissed, help you avoid conviction entirely, and keep your license. But what I can do varies and is dependent on a lot of factors so if you find yourself in need of a criminal attorney call me for a free consult and we’ll discuss your options…

  • Violent Crimes

    Numerous charges in Florida are sub-categorized as violent crimes. Charges include, but are not limited to, murder, kidnapping, rape or sexual battery, home invasion, robbery, carjacking, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, and even burglary. The state attorney’s office treats these charges severely and most violent crimes carry mandatory prison sentences.

    If a firearm is used in the commission of any violent crime then the 10-20-life punishment code is enforced.

    If charged, it is important you have an aggressive attorney with proven results. My experience as a criminal lawyer defending these matters can potentially save you from years of heartache and pain.

    Call me today to discuss.

  • Burglary (Breaking & Entering)

    Commonly referred to as breaking and entering and is a very common crime. The crime is actually entering the property of another with the intent to commit a crime inside. Technically speaking, burglary does not require proof of breaking in, nor is proof that a crime ever occurred once inside. Burglary only requires proof that when the property was entered the person had the necessary intent.

    Burglary is divided into two categories based on the type of property entered. Burglary of a dwelling, any home or residence regardless of whether it is occupied, is a second degree felony. Burglary of a structure, any building other than a home, or conveyance, a vehicle, is a third degree felony.

    Since proof of the burglary often hinges on the intent of the person charged at the moment of entry, there are defenses. Call my office to discuss. You will need a good criminal lawyer on your side.

  • Felony Drug Possession

    The most common reason for arrest in the United States is drug possession. Whether its cocaine, prescription pills without a valid script (Xanax, Percocet, Oxycontin, Lortab, Etc…), crack, heroin, pcp, lsd, or peyote, possession of even a small amount in Florida are all felonies – except small amounts of marijuana.

    Besides the punishments for a felony, which can include jail or probation, in Florida, a conviction for drug possession results in a mandatory driver’s license suspension. Regardless of whether the charge itself related to a car, involved a car, or involved driving in any way, being convicted of a drug charge will take your license automatically.

    Keep in mind, just because you had drugs on or near you does not mean you are guilty! I closely examine my cases and analyze how the interaction with law enforcement began to see whether your Fourth Amendment rights were violated.

    Call today. Let me fight for you.

  • Probation Violation

    Being on probation (including house arrest and community control) is not easy. Unforeseen and unimaginable issues can arise that result in violations and incarceration. In other words, when on probation, seemingly everyday activities can put the probationer at risk of violating and going back to jail.

    I take pride in representing individuals in all probation issues including:

    • Violation Defense
    • Motions to Modify Probation
    • Motions to Terminate Probation
    • Communicating with Officers
    • Clarification/Interpretation of Probation Conditions

    Terms and conditions of probation can be confusing and contradictory, contact me for a comprehensive review of your “probation papers” in order to clarify them for you. Probation is not freedom; you will still be under close and unrelenting supervision from the first day.

  • So, You Can’t Drive 55?: Hiring a Palm Beach County Traffic Attorney

    We have all been there. It’s one of those days. Everything seems to be going wrong and you’re running late for work. Your last though as you rush out the door is, “Maybe I can make up the time on the drive in…”. Or, maybe it was late. The road ahead looked wide open and you figure what the hell and sink your foot to the floor…

    Both big mistakes!

    Regardless of the reason and whether or not you are a single or repeat offender, traffic infractions must be taken seriously. If not a few ‘harmless’ mistakes on the road can domino in to arrest warrants, insurance problems, rate hikes, loss of your license and as a result jeopardize your quality of life – potentially even your employment.

    Quite often a good traffic attorney can make all that go away and, in many cases, do it without getting a single point added to your license…

What are the conditions for early termination probation? Section 948.05, Florida Statutes (2011), states, “[a] court may at any time cause a probationer…to ap-pear before it to be admonished or commended, and, when satisfied that its action will be for the best interests of justice and the welfare of society, it may discharge the probationer…

Just what does it mean to have your case dismissed? When defending his client against the State, a smart criminal defense attorney sees the fight like a game of chess; he strives to win the case in as few moves as possible. However, to do so, the lawyer, like a soldier going to war, must…
