If you are interested in a Tequesta Criminal lawyer, you deserve the quality defense that only a personally hired, experienced criminal attorney can provide. Would you agree?

I am a veteran Criminal Lawyer, AVVO rated 10.0 in DUI and Traffic, 10.0 in Criminal Defense, and 10 Best in Customer Satisfaction. I am A/V Rated Preeminent by my peers and have been selected to the Top 100 National Trial Lawyers. I treat every client as though he/she were my only client.

If you need answers, I have them.

A personal note from Tequesta Criminal Lawyer Josh LeRoy:

Royal 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 true cost. We openly discuss your situation and your choices, and we strategize accordingly.

Since you’re reading this, I’d venture a guess that 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, and 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.

Need a Tequesta Criminal Lawyer?

  • Marijuana Possession & Paraphernalia

    Mary Jane, Marijuana, pot, weed, cannabis, chronic, krypy, etc., is illegal in Florida. For the moment, anyway! The “It’s just a joint” attitude can result in a year in jail, a $1,000 fine, and a mandatory driver’s license suspension. Possession of over twenty grams is far worse!

    I have earned an impressive track record as a Tequesta Criminal attorney, defending against all kinds of drug possession criminal charges over the years – especially marijuana possession. Chances are I can get your charges dismissed, avoid conviction entirely, and keep your license. However, remember that what I can do varies and depends on many factors. So, contact me, and we’ll discuss your options.

  • Violent Crimes

    Numerous charges in Florida fall into this category. Violent crimes include but are not limited to murder, kidnapping, rape or sexual battery, home invasion, robbery, carjacking, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, and even burglary. Most carry mandatory prison sentences that prosecuting attorneys will make their priority to obtain. If a firearm is used while committing the crime, the 10-20-life punishment code is vigorously enforced.

    You must have an aggressive Tequesta Criminal Lawyer experienced in this area of law. I have successfully defended clients in all the offenses listed above. Call, fill me in on what happened in the past, and then we can discuss your future.

  • Burglary (Breaking & Entering)

    Burglary (Breaking & Entering, B&E) takes place when a person enters the property of another with the intent to commit a crime. Technically, a burglary charge does not require proof of breaking in, nor does it require proof that a crime occurred inside. Burglary only requires proof that the person had the necessary intent when entering the property.

    There are defenses since proof of the burglary hinges on your intent at the moment of entry. Who can truly tell you what your intent was? Call my office to discuss those defenses and what they can do for you.

  • Felony Drug Possession

    The most common reason for arrest in the United States is drug possession. Be it cocaine, illegally obtained pills (Xanax, Percocet, Oxycontin, Lortab, etc.), crack, heroin, PCP, LSD, or peyote, possession of any illegal drug, except small amounts of marijuana, is a felony in Florida. Punishments often include jail or probation, and, in Florida, a drug possession conviction results in a mandatory license suspension.

    Remember, just because you were near drugs does not mean you are guilty. Call my office. I will examine your case. I will analyze how the interaction with law enforcement began. I will determine whether your Fourth Amendment rights were violated. I will fight for you. I will help!

  • Probation Violation

    When on probation, seemingly simple everyday jobs can put you at risk of violating your probation and getting sent 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

    The terms and conditions of your probation can sometimes be confusing and even contradictory. Many violations are the result of innocent misunderstandings! You should come in for a comprehensive review of your “probation papers” before making a mistake that will violate your probation’s terms. I’ll walk you through the details.

    Contact me immediately if you have already violated your terms because of a misunderstanding or otherwise. I have resolved countless probation violation cases over the years. I can help.

  • Expungements

    Your case has been dismissed. The charges have been dropped. However, now you must clear your record because a background check will still show those charges. A dismissed case can prevent you from getting a job or a promotion or hold you back from achieving various other life goals.

    Fortunately, Florida’s laws permit a person to expunge an entire arrest/case. Subject to certain conditions, the most important of which is that you have never previously been convicted of any crime. That means multiple violations from one case, including a felony downgraded to a misdemeanor, can be entirely deleted from your record forever.

    I can help you clear your criminal record. I can help you put an arrest behind you by expunging the case. Call me to discuss how I can help you move on with your life.

  • DUIs & Traffic Tickets

    Our ability to make simple mistakes is partly what makes us basically human. I understand that as a fact. Which is why I think some traffic-related punishments are absurd! I’ve enjoyed great success in getting charges mitigated and, in many cases, completely dismissed. For further details, visit my Tequesta DUI Lawyer or my Tequesta Traffic Attorney resources.
