I was pulled over for a DUI (pulled over for speeding, no injuries or damage) about 2.5 years ago now and I thought my life was completely ruined. I went to Josh for a consultation and he reassured me that I would be the first person he's seen go to jail over one DUI. He asked me what my priorities were (what kind of fine I would be able to pay, willingness to do community service/alcohol courses, etc.) and basically gave me a customized plan to get going from there. The entire time, his calm and confident demeanor really did provide some much needed comfort.
After getting the total cost of his services (which was very reasonable, considering it was a flat rate even if we had to actually go to court), his office assistant provided us with a very amenable payment plan.
I eventually got an appropriate sentence (community service, alcohol reeducation classes, 30 day suspended license, breathalyzer in the car) and it was made so much less painful because I had Josh to defend me and then walk me through everything.
After about two years, I had a question come up on a job application that was worded a little confusingly; I didn't want to lie about anything, but I also didn't want to open that door unnecessarily. I sent Josh an email with the question and he got back to me by the end of the day with how I should legally answer it. It's incredible that after two years he was still happy to look up my case and answer in such an incredibly timely manner.
If you can't tell, I had an amazing experience with Josh McDowell. At least for DUIs, he knows the law and the system inside and out. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends in a tight spot.
(For the record, I haven't driven if I even suspect that I might have alcohol in my system since that night. Uber, Lyft, traditional taxi, call a friend, anything but driving. I still had a hefty fine to pay and plenty of community service to soberly think about my actions, but I can't even imagine going through all of that without Josh's counsel.)

Where to start, I am beyond pleased with the outcome following charges of a first DUI. I have never been in trouble with the law and this was beyond overwhelming for me. After interviewing many local lawyers, it wasn't hard to decide on hiring Josh to represent me. Josh went above and beyond to make this process as manageable for me as possible. My BAC was very high, and I should have gone to jail, but Josh was able to keep me out of there and get my charges reduced to a DWAI. I want to express my gratitude to Josh for being much more than a lawyer, Josh is kind and understanding and I cannot thank him enough. Hopefully you will not find yourself in this situation, but if you do, do not hesitate to contact him, I highly recommend him.

Josh represented me in a TRO case that was unjustly filed against me and won the case. His knowledge and experience prevented the TRO from going permanent and interfering with my life. If anyone needs an attorney that will do the best for you and is straightforward on his advice than Josh is that attorney. Thank you Josh for your help.

My career was on the line my back was up against the wall, and I was in desperate need of a DUI Attorney. Mr. McDowell came to my rescue!!! Joshua McDowell charged me a flat rate fee for my DUI/DWAI case no matter how many times we went to court there was no additional out of pocket expenses. My B.A.C was between .051- .079 I explained to him that it would be detrimental to my career if I am charged or convicted of an Alcohol related incident. He never promised me anything as far as the outcome of my case but he was efficient and attentive and work diligently on my case to get the outcome that I wanted. Because of his keen knowledge and diverse background my charge of DUI/DWAI was reduce to RECKLESS DRIVING a non alcohol related incident. Joshua McDowell is a lawyer that will exhaust all means and fight to get the client the outcome they desire. I HIGHLY RECOMMED Mr. McDowell to anyone going thru a DUI/DWAI Case

I received my first DUI and was beyond scared. I was not familiar with the court system and was in need of an attorney to guide me through the process. Josh McDowell was the best choice i could have ever made. In my free consultation he was extremely knowledgable of the process within the court and DMV systems and put me at ease, which made my choice of hiring him as my attorney a no brainer. He took off a great amount of stress in a very stressful situation and i would recommend him to anyone that needs a defense attorney.

I had been the one who went to jail after a physical altercation with my boyfriend at the time, even though he was clearly the aggressor. I was adamant about keeping my name clear, and his recommendations afforded me the right to do just that. (worth every penny? I guess you'll have to see July's docket re: the ex...) It was worth it to me at the time to maintain my dignity.
Josh had worked with me previously on a DUI case, and I found him to be incredibly personable, understanding, and supportive throughout both cases, even when I called in tears to ask WTF? when we both knew there was nothing I could do, or pay him to do at certain points in the processes.
I really felt like I had a good friend from high school coming in to help me out, and earn his money with integrity. (He takes cash, lol!) I would recommend him to anyone, except for maybe 3 specific people who don't deserve representation of this caliber...and he is easy on the eyes...:-)

Fantastic!!! I felt so at ease with Josh. I have never even had a speeding ticket so this process was VERY scary for me. Josh talked m through everything, responded to every email and phone call immediately, and worked VERY hard for me. I am exceptionally pleased with the outcome of my case…and its all thanks to Josh!

My Husband and I hired him to represent my husband for his DWAI. Josh is great at what he does. He treats you like a real person throughout the process and he's knowledgeable. All great traits for a lawyer.

Mr. McDowell is a guy who really knows his stuff. He is confident in his ability and made me feel good right away. I had tons of questions and I knew he was being honest with his answers. Many people have a bad impression of lawyers in general, so I was nervous in finding the right one. I did go through a process of interviewing several lawyers. I had trouble finding someone who I felt wasn't trying to sell me on what I wanted to hear. Josh was upfront and honest and I felt comfortable with him and his manner of communicating with me.
If you go through a process of hiring an attorney for a DUI case, make sure to call Josh McDowell.

I started working with Joshua McDowell in December 2011, on my DUI charges. From the beginning I felt very comfortable with him. He advised me what I should do; Community Service and Alcohol Education classes and I followed his advice. I was e-mailing Mr. McDowell with questions to which he would very quickly reply to every e-mail. In July 2012, when my case completed, thanks to Josh, the outcome was to my advantage. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Joshua McDowell and his firm. Thank you VERY much Mr. McDowell!
