Tequesta Criminal Lawyer & DUI Attorney

Criminal Law

Traffic Violations

Probation Violations



o, it seems 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?

You shouldn’t have to wonder if the criminal defense firm you hired has attorneys cherry picking media worthy cases and delegating the rest to overworked, less experienced, associates and office staff. You shouldn’t have to wonder whether a law firm or lawyer calculated your fees based on what they think you could pay – charging different clients different fees just because they look different! You shouldn’t. But, you do.

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.

You are reading this page so you probably have questions – or worse, you’re in a mess and have no clue of what to do, or what questions you need to ask. Do not hesitate. Get an attorney immediately. The longer you delay the harder your case becomes. 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 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.

Need a Tequesta Criminal Lawyer?

  • Marijuana Possession & Paraphernalia


    ary 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, bear in mind, what I can do varies and is dependent on a lot of factors. So, contact me and we’ll discuss your options…

  • Violent Crimes


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

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

  • Burglary (Breaking & Entering)


    urglary (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 when the property was entered the person had the necessary intent.

    Since proof of the burglary hinges on your intent at the moment of entry , there are defenses. Who can truly tell you what your intent was? Call my office and we can discuss just what those defenses are and what they can do for you.

  • Felony Drug Possession


    he 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 normally 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 that 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


    hen 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 be confusing, and even contradictory at times. 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.

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

  • Expungements


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

    Fortunately, Florida’s laws permit a person to expunge an entire arrest/case. Subject to certain conditions, most important of which is that you have never previously been convicted of any crime. That means that multiple violations from one case, including a felony down filed 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 for making 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.

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…
