Great Lawyer
I was facing a DUI for weed and that would leave me with a criminal record. I wanted to avoid getting a criminal record at all costs and I did not want to take any classes or have my license suspended. Josh Stevens did a great job of making a plea with the D.A. And got me a disorderly conduct with 3 days of community service done privately where I live in Nj. Josh is always there at court and reminds you the day before to let you know to go to court. I'm happy for Josh to get me a violation that would not stay on my record, and for giving me a reasonable price to defend me. I would hire again (if ever needed)

Got 10 years probation down to 6 (possibly 3)
I hired Josh because I was falsely accused of something. With Josh’s help, I was able to avoid having felony charges on my record. He also reduced the terms of my probation significantly (no curfew etc) and knocked my probation time down from 10 years to 6. We’re pretty sure he’ll get that down to 3. Will be working on that with Josh in a year or so.

DISMISSED IN 3 HEARINGS
I was wrongfully arrested for a motor cycle accident & Joshua Stevens helped me get the case dismissed. Joshua is sharp, well spoken, and is very competent, exactly the type of individual I needed to represent me. I plan to also use his services again to pursue a civil rights lawsuit. 5/5

Humane, honest, compassionate, and effective
It is rare to find a humane lawyer like Mr. Stevens. He is very professional and responsive. He is not after money and genuinely wants to help people. He also breaks down complex laws in a way that a layman can understand. If he gives you his words he keeps it which is rare in this day and age. Aside from his personal attributes and kindness he is a heck of a lawyer. He was able to have my brother’s felony and other charges dismissed very promptly. I know taking a look at his stellar reviews may make you doubt him because it may seem too good to be true, I too thought that. However, after working with him I can attest that he is indeed a great attorney and the his client reviews are genuine.

Best LAWYER in the WORLD!!!!!
Joshua Stevens is a phenomenal attorney! One of the most genuine and caring people I've ever worked with! He has always been a very understanding and supportive. When in time of need he was there to help. I would certainly recommend his expertise in the law to anyone in need. He worked hard for me and exceeded my expectations. He fought for me and found the best investigators to facilitate my defense. I walked away with a violation from a DWI. Joshua tirelessly approached my case with diligence and tenacity. He checked on me throughout my process to ensure I was doing ok and always kept me on point. Not only did I hire a good lawyer but I gained a friend. Believe me he will find a way to help you he won't stop till he is satisfied he is doing what's best.

Excellent lawyer - Experienced & Empathetic
Joshua has been a great lawyer right from the beginning and was a constant source of support through some stressful period. He was able to greatly reduce my charges and kept his word throughout the 6+ month long process. He is very experienced and always took the time to explain what was going on and what needed to be done and that was very helpful. I would highly recommend hiring him to get some excellent legal support.

Best of the best
I was accused of a DUI charge, and this brilliant guy saved my life and kept me from even having a record. Josh is patient, hard-working, confident, intelligent, professional, and sympathetic. Most importantly, he knows what he does, and he is good at what he does with the NYC court system. Not only did he take care of everything and make every step of the entire process smooth and easy, but also he made me keep calm and less stressed throughout the process. I hope you don't get into a situation where you need an attorney. But, if you need one, Josh must be your best choice.

Excellent Professional
Josh was recommended to me, and hit on every point of the recommendation. I feel very fortunate. He was helpful, calming, and personable throughout the entire process with the NYC court system, brought my anxiety about the situation I was under down significantly and repeatedly. He had the respect of the court, that was pretty apparent with our interactions. A very normal guy on top of his professionalism with the case, grounded in New York sensibilities. Rare to find someone who meets and exceeds expectations like this. Wholeheartedly recommend him for your various lawyer needs.

Elite of the Elite
Mr. Stevens is diligent, dedicated, meticulous, and hard working. He is devoted to his clients and achieving a desired outcome is his main goal and objective. Mr. Stevens takes command of the situation and the respect from his colleagues is more than apparent in the court room. Above all Mr. Stevens is the epitome of what a great lawyer should be and wouldn’t think twice about recommending him.

A great help through the whole process
I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer throughout the entire process. The entire thing took over a year and Mr. Stevens was in communication with me through the whole time. After each court date he was able to explain exactly what was going on in a way I could understand and he answered any questions I had quickly whenever I reached out to him. Also, he was just generally enjoyable to be around which made a very stressful process easier.

Criminal defense Attorney | May 18
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Mr. Stevens on many cases and he is a very talented and well respected lawyer who really cares about his clients and getting the best results in every case. He is always courteous, prompt, and very well prepared for every court appearance. He always answers his phone or promptly returns his calls and that is what you would expect from a lawyer who understands that clients want to be able to reach their attorney with questions and concerns and not have to wait days for a return call. He has won complete dismissals on over a dozen cases that I referred to him or worked with him on and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a criminal lawyer in New York. His fees are often half of what other lawyers ask and that is one of the other reasons that I refer so many cases to him when I am unable to make the appearance."
