Looking for a Palm Beach Criminal Lawyer? You should not be forced to speculate whether the criminal defense firm you chose has lawyers cherry-picking press-worthy cases and assigning what’s left to overstressed, substantially less accomplished associates. You should never have to worry if a law firm or attorney establishes your service fees based on what they think you can afford – invoicing different clientele different amounts for the same work merely because they strike them differently!

You should not. Yet, you should.

I’m a veteran Criminal Attorney with an AVVO rating of 10.0 in DUI and Traffic, 10.0 in Criminal Defense, and 10 Best in Customer Satisfaction. I’m A/V Rated Preeminent by my colleagues and have also been selected into the Top 100 National Trial Lawyers. I regard each defendant as if they were my only client. In addition, I only invoice a reasonable one-time fee for legal representation for many misdemeanors in Palm Beach & Broward County Courts.

You, in all likelihood, have questions or concerns – or worse yet, you’re in distress and have little idea of what to do or just what questions you have to ask. Do not hesitate. Obtain a law firm right away. The longer you hold off, the more complex the case will become. You’re searching for answers. I know them.

A personal note from Josh:

Palm Beach Criminal Lawyer Josh LeRoyThis firm carries my name. Every case is taken very seriously, and every client is treated like 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. You get me if you need 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 venture to guess that 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, 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.

  • Marijuana Possession & Paraphernalia

    Mary Jane, Marijuana, pot, weed, cannabis, chronic, krypy, etc., is not legal in Florida. For the moment, at least! The “It’s just one joint” way of thinking will likely result in a year in prison, a thousand-dollar fee, and a compulsory driving license suspension. Possessing more than 20 grams is more severe!

    I have earned an outstanding reputation as a Palm Beach Criminal Attorney, standing up against all kinds of drug possession charges – notably marijuana possession. I will likely have your charges dismissed and sidestep conviction 100% while keeping your license. What I can do may vary and depend on several considerations. So, phone me, and we will work out your options…

  • Violent Crimes

    Numerous criminal charges within Florida belong to this class. Violent crimes encompass but aren’t limited to murder, kidnapping, rape or sexual battery, home invasion, robbery, carjacking, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, and burglary. Virtually all carry mandatory prison sentences, and prosecuting attorneys prioritize that. If a firearm is used during a crime, the 10-20-life punishment code is vigorously enforced.

    It would be best to have a competitive Palm Beach Criminal Lawyer proficient in this aspect of law. I’ve effectively defended clients through all these criminal charges – and far more.

    Please tell me precisely what occurred, and we will discuss your potential future.

  • Burglary (Breaking & Entering)

    Burglary (Breaking & Entering, B&E) results when somebody enters the property of a person with the intent to actually commit a criminal offense. Legally, a burglary charge doesn’t require proof of breaking in or substantiation that a criminal offense occurred inside the property. Burglary has to confirm that when the property or house was entered, the individual intended to commit a crime.

    Since evidence of the burglary depends on your intent at the time of access, many defenses exist. Who can, without a doubt, say precisely what one’s intent was? Get in touch with my office, and we can look at what defenses you have and how they will help you.

  • Felony Drug Possession

    The most common source of criminal arrest in the nation is, without question, drug possession. Cocaine, illegally acquired prescriptions (Xanax, Percocet, Oxycontin, Lortab, etc..), crack, heroin, PCP, LSD, or peyote, and possession of any illicit drug, except for small quantities of weed, will be a felony charge in the Sunshine State. Punitive measures entail jail along with probation.

    A drug possession conviction in Florida also leads to a required driver’s license revocation.

    Please remember, just because you are near drugs does not mean you are unquestionably guilty. Get in touch with my law firm. I will evaluate your case. I will assess just how the interaction with authorities was initiated. I will determine whether your Fourth Amendment civil liberties have been disregarded. I will deal with the problem for you. I will help!

    Call today. Let me fight for you.

  • Probation Violation

    When on probation, fairly regular day-to-day activities can easily put you in danger of violating your probation and consequently get you shipped straight back to jail. I take great pride in helping individuals in all probation matters, among them:

    • Violation Defense
    • Motions to Modify Probation
    • Motions to Terminate Probation
    • Speaking with Officers
    • Explanation/Interpretation of Probation Stipulations

    The finer points of your probation may have been unclear and/or contradictory. Plenty of violations are typically the result of innocent misconceptions! Come for an in-depth review of your “probation papers” before you make a misstep that breaches your probation’s conditions. Allow me to walk you through your obligations.

    However, if you have already violated due to some misconception, or something else, contact me ASAP. I have remedied many probation violation cases over the years. Allow me to help you.

  • Expungements

    Your court case has been dismissed. Any charges have been dropped. You must clean up your arrest record; background checks will still have those criminal charges. A dismissed criminal charge, in many cases, can keep you from locating a real job or promotion and from attaining many personal hopes and dreams.

    Fortunately, Florida’s legal system allows you to expunge an entire criminal charge. Subject to a few provisions, such as you have never previously been convicted of any crime. This means many different criminal offenses from one case, such as a felony reduced to only a misdemeanor, can now be 100% deleted from your record.

    I can help you clean up your criminal history. I will help put an arrest behind you by expunging the criminal offense. Call me to discuss how I can help you continue your life.

  • DUIs & Traffic Tickets

    Our capacity for making mistakes is without question a trait that makes us human. I understand that and consider it a straightforward fact. I feel strongly that many DUIs and traffic-related fines are unfair. I’ve had great results in getting charges reduced or dismissed altogether. For specifics, look at my Palm Beach DUI Attorney resource or my Palm Beach Traffic Attorney resource – learn how to beat a speeding ticket!
