FOUNDED LEROY LAW
LEROY LAW CLIENTS
You need a skilled West Palm Beach Criminal Attorney / DUI Lawyer because experience WINS.
Can you afford to lose? –J. LeRoy
He is an award-winning trial attorney and has won hundreds of cases against a diverse range of charges, such as marijuana and drug possession, sales, and trafficking, violations of probation, and violent felonies such as burglary, robbery, home invasion, aggravated assault and battery, shootings, murder, felony DUI, rape, sexual abuse, any weapon and/or gun charges, as well as theft and grand theft.
A personal note from Josh:
This 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 reveal later the “truth” of your case – and its actual cost. We openly discuss your situation and your choices and strategize accordingly.
Since you’re reading this, I’d guess that you or someone you’re close to 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, and keep that forward momentum! The longer you take to find counsel, the harder your case becomes. Please drop me a note and let me know what the problem is.

– 2009 – 2011, Firm Experience
Powers, McNalis, Torres, and Teabaggy (insurance defense) and Skier Law Firm (West Palm Beach criminal defense attorney).
– 2005 – ’09, Public Defender
I began my criminal attorney career as a Palm Beach Public Defender, defending thousands of clients with charges ranging from minor misdemeanors to felonies punishable by mandatory life imprisonment. Through countless trials, nearly all with favorable outcomes, I gained invaluable trial experience and knowledge of the justice system.
It shaped me into a formidable trial attorney and perfected my skills as a creative legal researcher and writer. I developed a unique talent for finding details that other criminal attorneys regularly miss, giving me an edge in defending my clients. Clients routinely hire me to replace other West Palm Beach criminal attorneys.

HOW CAN I HELP YOU?
- Marijuana Possession & Paraphernalia
Marijuana, also known as Mary Jane, pot, weed, cannabis, chronic, krypy, or any other 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.
You need an experienced West Palm Beach criminal attorney because they will often be able to save your driver’s license
So, you have a charge for marijuana possession? My West Palm Beach criminal attorney career has a solid track record with drug possession charges. Chances are I can get your charges dismissed, help you avoid conviction altogether, and keep your license. But what I can do varies and depends on many factors, so if you need a West Palm Beach 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 the commission of any violent crime involves a firearm, then the 10-20-life punishment code is enforced.
If charged, you must have an aggressive West Palm Beach Criminal Attorney with a proven track record.
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 widespread 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 the person had the necessary intent when someone enters the property.
If you have been charged, call me because you need to have a West Palm Beach criminal attorney that knows how to defend against burglary allegations
Burglary has two categories based on the type of property entered. Burglary of a dwelling, any home or residence, regardless of whether someone occupies it, is a second-degree felony. Burglary of a structure, any building other than a home, or conveyance, a vehicle, is a third-degree felony.
There are defenses since proof of the burglary often hinges on the intent of the person charged at the moment of entry. Call my office to discuss. You will need an excellent criminal lawyer on your side.
- Felony Drug Possession
The most common reason for arrest in the United States is drug possession. Whether it’s 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.
In addition to felony punishments, which can include jail or probation, a conviction for drug possession is a mandatory driver’s license suspension in Florida. Whether the charge was related to a car, involved a vehicle, or involved driving in any way, being convicted of a drug charge will automatically take your license.
If you have been charged, call me because you need a good West Palm Beach criminal attorney and I have experience in getting drug allegations pled down or even dismissed
Remember, just because you had drugs on or near you does not make you guilty! I closely examine my cases and analyze how the interaction with law enforcement began to see whether authorities violated your Fourth Amendment Constitutional rights.
Call today. You need a West Palm Beach criminal attorney who will fight for you.
- Superb West Palm Beach 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 the close attention to detail I devote to my cases, often reveals details overlooked by others. These details allow me to argue Motions to Suppress Evidence or negotiate plea agreements that reduce many first-offense DUI charges to just Reckless Driving, a misdemeanor.
It’s true, “to err is human,” but I also firmly believe those mistakes are the source of some of the greatest lessons we learn. 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 negatively impact your entire life.
It would be best if you had 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 consultation. Don’t exacerbate an already stressful experience by not getting yourself the best West Palm Beach DUI attorney possible.
- Probation ViolationBeing 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 it 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
A good West Palm Beach criminal attorney will help you understand the terms and conditions of your probation
Terms and conditions of probation can be confusing and contradictory. Contact me for a comprehensive review of your “probation papers” to clarify them. 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 go wrong, and you’re running late for work. As you rush out the door, your last thought 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 figured, what the hell, and sank your foot to the floor.
Both are big mistakes!
Regardless of the reason and whether or not you are a single or repeat offender, you must take traffic infractions seriously. If not, a few “harmless” mistakes on the road can lead 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.
