AN ATTORNEY PUTTING HIS CLIENTS FIRST
“Joshua represented me as a victim’s attorney in a domestic violence case where there was substance abuse involved. He immediately made contact with the prosecutor and defense attorney and communicated my wishes as to the disposition of the case. He kept me informed the entire time and communicated with the prosecutor and got plea negotiations started that resulted in the defendant getting the help that was needed. His efforts helped the defendant and the defendant’s family more than the defendant’s own attorney did. Joshua’s philosophy in his practice of law is to ensure substance users receive help and rehabilitation rather than punishment. It is something he is very passionate about and it shows in his work.”~ On Avvo

These legal matters can be intimidating and complicated, which is why it’s crucial to take an informed approach. You can count on us to guide you in every step of the process. These claims may involve overdose, wrongful death, medical malpractice, fraud, sexual assault and abuse, and holding treatment centers accountable for abuses and violations due to the lack of regulatory oversight.
