He answered any and all questions I had for him in a timely fashion and really achieved the outcome I wanted! I really appreciate him and the work he has done and would recommend him to anyone!

I received a DUI charge, but with Josh's determination and knowledge, he was able to get my charge lowered to a civil infraction. Without his work I would have a misdemeanor on my record, a few thousand dollars spent, and my license suspended. I'm truly grateful.

Josh was great! He made things easy for me to understand and I felt comfortable talking to him. He helped me out a lot. I highly recommend him.

I thought Josh did a great job handling my case. He kept me informed with everything that was going on through the whole process and met with me to answer or discuss any questions or concerns that I had in a very prompt manner. Josh was very knowledgable about the law and the judge that my case was assigned to and informed me on what I could do to benefit myself in the situation that I was in.

If your looking for one of the most competent, professional, CARING attorneys look no further. Joshua Covert will do more than you hope for. Picking the right attorney DOES matter. And I'm so grateful I picked Josh. You can, too.

Never will you see more passion from an attorney. Mr. Covert is serious about the work he does in drug crime defense. He treated me like I was part of the team and kept me involved and informed. Where all the other attorneys say back and did nothing, Mr. Covert immediately set to work. We had a great outcome and I was lucky to have this man on my team!

Josh went above and beyond representing me in court. While, ultimately, I was convicted for operating while intoxicated, Josh was consistently open for advice pertaining to things inside and outside of the case. He stuck with me through my battle with the court and even checked in with me after the fact to see how I was faring with probation. Josh not only defended me in court, but showed that he cared about my well-being. If anyone I know gets mixed up with a substance charge in the future, I will definitely refer Josh.

I was arrested in February 2013 on a super drunk driving charge. Following my release from jail, I sought consult with other attorneys in the Lansing area. As I was given absolutely nothing from the police or jail (no ticket or any sort of paper work), the general consensus seemed to be that the courts would inform me via mail about an arraignment and other legal obligations. I heard nothing for 2 months until I was called by a police detective to inform me that a warrant for my arrest had been put out.
After getting that news, I contacted the Nichols Law firm whom I had discovered through the Internet but had not spoken with yet. I was put into contact with Josh within the hour. Josh immediately started helping me before I even hired him. He called the police to find out everything that was involved and promptly called me back and explained the entire situation and even offered advice about the best way to handle the situation. He then invited me to his office for a consultation and I agreed to hire him that day.
Josh was extremely supportive and knowledge about the DUI/OWI process during my experience with him. He kept me updated on everything and always immediately informed me if any new or pertinent information about my case had come up and was always willing to discuss anything that was worrying me.
I was initially charged with an OWI enhanced (super drunk) but with Josh's representation the charge was reduced to a regular OWI (DUI). And with Josh as my attorney, I was able to avoid all court imposed punishment besides a fine. NO probation. NO community service.
Josh is a great lawyer and has become a great friend. I would STRONGLY recommend him to anyone that has to go through the stress and ordeal of a drunk driving case. He will make everything so much easier for you.

Josh was able to get a felony of manufacturing marijuana with intent to deliver dismissed.

I first spoke with Joshua about an hour before i was due to appear in court. I called out of terror and desperation after my original attorney basically bailed on me. Perhaps my predicament might have been too much to handle but not for Joshua Covert. After our first meeting he gave me his personal cell number and said to call anytime. In the past I've hired attourneys that are only available 9-5 monday through friday. I had a few times where stress would start to get the best of me and numerous occasions where I spoke with Mr. Covert and he would reassure me that we had a good case and nothing to worry about. He really seems to enjoy helping people the best way he can and loves being in his line of work. Long story short, I was being charged with a second DUI. Josh was able to help me prove that i was not guilty of that charge but unfortunately it still isnt legal to have alcohol while walking down the road! I highly reommend Josh to anyone that is in need of a very educated and HIGHLY knowledgeable attorney.
