About Me

Joshua Price graduated from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego.During his time in law school, Joshua was involved in criminal defense work through his internships with the San Diego County Alternate Public Defender.After taking the California State Bar Exam, he continued his pursuit of criminal defense work after being selected for a Post Bar Internship with the San Diego County Public Defender.He continued to gain experience that he would eventually need to be a successful defender of people’s constitutional rights.

After completing his Post Bar Internship and passing the California State Bar Exam, Joshua immediately got involved with DUI and DMV defense.Using his foundation of general criminal defense concepts he was able to hit the ground running in defending against DUI related allegations.Joshua has focused exclusively on DMV and DUI defense and has handled over 600 such cases.His determination, knowledge and aggressiveness have helped to obtain many positive results for his clients (see RESULTS).

These types of cases involve two separate and distinct entities:Criminal Court and DMV.Dealing with DUI allegations, he handles both the criminal side of cases and also defends against DMV license suspensions on the civil side.DUI cases are extremely complicated and must be handled accordingly.Entrusting Joshua Price with your case ensures that no stone will be left unturned and he will fight for you every step of the way to ensure that the government is held to their burden of proof!

Mr. Price has also successfully completed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) training which is a 3 day course in administering Standardized Field Sobriety Test's.  He passed both the written and instructional portions of this course.  This is the same training that most California Highway Patrol and Law Enforcement Officers take.  He is Qualified in DWI Detection and the Administration of the Standardized Administration of Field Sobriety Testing under Federal Standards and Guidelines.
