North Palm Beach Criminal Lawyer & DUI Attorney
You shouldn’t need to have to speculate if the criminal defense firm you picked has attorneys cherry picking press suitable legal cases and assigning the rest to over-worked, much less accomplished, associates and law firm personnel. You should never have to worry whether or not a firm or attorney calculated your service fees based on what they think you should be able to cover – invoicing different clients different rates simply because they seem to be different! You should not. Regrettably, you do.
I’m a veteran Criminal Lawyer, AVVO graded 10.0 in DUI as well as Traffic, 10.0 in Criminal Defense, and also 10 Best in Customer Satisfaction. I am A/V Rated Preeminent by my colleagues and also have been selected to the Top 100 National Trial Lawyers. I treat each and every client just as though he / she were my only client.
You are reading this article, which means you in all probability have a lot of questions – or worse still, you may be having problems and have no concept of the direction to go, or what kind of questions you’ll need to discuss. Don’t hesitate. Get legal counsel right away. The more time you hold off the more difficult the case ends up being. You want answers. I know them.
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 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.

- Marijuana Possession & Paraphernalia
Mary Jane, Marijuana, pot, weed, cannabis, chronic, krypy, etc., is illicit within the state of Florida. For the moment in any case! The “It’s just a joint” position can easily result in a year in prison, a one thousand dollar fine coupled with a mandatory driving license revocation. Possession of in excess of 20 grams is much worse!
I have a formidable reputation being a North Palm Beach Criminal Attorney defending against all the versions of drug possession charges over the years – notably marijuana possession. Odds are high that I will get your criminal charges dismissed, prevent conviction completely, while keeping your driving license. Yet, keep in mind that, specifically what I will achieve can vary and is also dependent upon many points. So, call me and we will talk about your alternatives…
- Violent Crimes
Numerous criminal charges in Florida land in this particular class. Violent crimes include, but aren’t confined to, murder, kidnapping, rape or sexual battery, home invasion, robbery, carjacking, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, along with burglary. Virtually all often carry mandatory jail sentences of which prosecuting attorneys will make sure it is their priority to acquire . Whenever a firearm is used over the course of carrying out the transgression the 10-20-life punishment code is strongly enforced.
It is important that you have an assertive North Palm Beach Criminal Attorney with qualifications in this area of law. I have effectively defended individuals in all of the crimes discussed right above – plus much more. Phone us, we’ll go over what precisely happened in the past, and then we will take a look at your future.
- Burglary (Breaking & Entering)
Burglary (Breaking & Entering, B&E) occurs when somebody enters the house or property of another with the intent to commit a crime. Theoretically, a burglary charge does not need proof of breaking in, and neither will it require proof that criminal offense took place on the inside. Burglary strictly must have proof that when the property had been entered the man or woman had the needed intent.
Taking into consideration that proof of the burglary depends on the intent at the time of entry , there exists defenses. Who can realistically say to you what precisely ones own intent might have been? Phone my firm and we will chat about precisely what those defenses tend to be as well as what they’re able to do to help you.
- Felony Drug Possession
The most common source of arrest in the country is without a doubt drug possession. Whether it’s cocaine, illegally obtained prescriptions (Xanax, Percocet, Oxycontin, Lortab, Etc.), crack, heroin, pcp, lsd, or peyote, acquiring any type of illegal drug, except small amounts of marijuana, will be a felony offense in the State of Florida. Punishments often normally include prison and / or probation and in addition, in the State of Florida, any kind of drug possession conviction results in a compulsory drivers license revocation .
Don’t forget, despite the fact that you were around drugs does not mean you will definitely be guilty. Phone my law firm. I will look into all of your case. I will examine precisely how the interaction with the police began. I will evaluate if your 4th Amendment civil rights were disregarded. I will fight for you. I will help !
- Probation ViolationWhen on probation, seemingly regular common jobs could put you at risk of violating your probation and consequently getting transferred into a prison cell. I take pride in helping individuals through all probation difficulties, especially:
Motions to Modify Probation
Motions to Terminate Probation
Engaging with Officers
Clarification/Interpretation of Probation Terms
The conditions and terms of your probation can be tricky, and possibly even contradicting sometimes. Countless violations are typically because of basic misconceptions! You may want to come in for a careful review of your “probation papers” before making a mistake may possibly violate your probation’s stipulations. I can walk you through the details.
If you think you have already violated the stipulations stemming from a misconception, or something else, call me asap. I have managed a great number of probation violation offenses over the years. Allow me to help.
- ExpungementsYour court case has now been dismissed. The actual charges are now dropped. Yet, at this point you really need to cleanse your personal record considering any kind of a arrest background check will continue to contain those charges. Any dismissed criminal offense will probably put a stop to you from getting a good job, a job promotion, and prevent you from accomplishing a variety of other life objectives.
Fortuitously, Florida’s laws allow one to expunge an entire arrest/criminal case. Under certain stipulations, foremost of which is you have never previously been convicted of any sort of criminal offense. This means various violations from a single case, like a felony down filed to just a misdemeanor, can be wholly wiped from your own personal record permanently.
I will help thoroughly clean your criminal convictions. I will help place a charge behind you from expunging the criminal charge. Telephone me to discuss how I will help you move ahead with your life.
- DUIs & Traffic Tickets
One’s ability for making basic errors is without a doubt, partly, precisely what makes them human. I recognize that to be a basic fact. This is why I believe many traffic connected punishments are unfair. I have had great success in getting charges reduced, as well as 100% dropped. For specifics, drop by my North Palm Beach DUI Lawyer or my North Palm Beach Traffic Ticket Attorney resources.
