Hire Josh
Josh assisted with a DUI and made the entire situation extremely easy. He was available any time I had concerns, explained step by step, and never made me feel alone in the process. Thankful to have the support I did with hiring Josh.

Professional and Effective
Joshua achieved excellent results for a reasonable fee. He walked me through the entire process and was very communicative. I had never been in a situation like this and he was able to make it less scary.

Thank you Attorney Goldberg!
Even though I did not formally retain Attorney Goldberg, he still was happy to be available to guide and advise me during an extremely complex case. I sincerely appreciate Attorney Goldberg's knowledge, availability, and responsiveness. The next time anyone I know is looking for a DUI lawyer, I will happily refer them to Attorney Goldberg.

Response from Joshua Goldberg March 26, 2022
We were glad your out-of-state case did not trigger a PA license suspension. We always aim to provide the best information possible on out-of-state traffic, CDL, and DUI conviction consequences for PA drivers.

Excellent Attorney and customer service for traffic ticket
Josh was my attorney for a traffic ticket where I faced the possibility of points being deducted from my license. He helped guide me through the entire process and listened to my concerns and questions. He was able to get my ticket reduced so I did not lose any points and removed much of my anxiety about walking into a courtroom. Afterwards, he helped make sure I knew about any small fines I had to pay and followed up to make sure my case was fully concluded. Would definitely recommend.

5 point speeding ticket
I was unfortunately caught in a speed trap as soon the speed limit decreased as a result ended up with a 51 in a 25. Josh answered all my questions and was pretty methodical in his approach. The police officer ended up not showing up and joshua was able to get the ticket dimissed. Would recommend

Fantastic Lawyer!
Josh was easily the best decision to help me fight some tough traffic tickets I was facing. He was always respectful and explained everything that I did not understand throughout the process. Josh helped make me feel comfortable during the entire experience and is someone that I would turn to again if ever needed. I will recommend him to anyone that needs a good lawyer that will stand up for you in your time of need!

Excellent CDL attorney
Josh did an excellent job representing me! I am a trucker from Illinois, with a CDL license. And initally Josh was going to change my moving violation into a non-moving violation. Better yet, he had my tickets completely dismissed. He was able to do this all without me even being there!

I contacted Josh for legal expertise on traffic tickets my son had. Josh was able to resolve the traffic tickets quickly and smoothly. From my initial phone call I found him to be very professional and easy to talk to. He took the time to explain the legal process, communicate updates and went above and beyond by answering my questions and taking the time to provide me with valuable information. Thank you Josh for your expertise and I highly recommend you to future clients.

Best of the best!!!
Josh was the best decision we could have made when it was time to hire a lawyer. We had rented a van to go to a convention in New Jersey. On our way back home to Indiana, it was raining so badly that we had an accident and the rental van was damaged around Pittsburg, PA. As a result of the accident, the rental company told us that we were responsible for the damages and that we had to pay even though it was due to the weather condition and not my driving. Even though we had purchased full coverage with the rental company, they still told us that they would not cover the damages because the police officer at the time of the accident had given us a traffic citation for "driving at an unsafe speed".  When we decided to hire Josh in regards to that traffic citation, he picked up the phone himself. He was very responsive to phone calls, text messages and emails that my wife and I were sending him. He advised us to get statements from other people who were traveling with us in the van. He also told us about all the steps of the process, what would happen when we hired him, what would happen at the court, what options we had in case the case was not dismissed. Even when we had to postpone the court date, he helped us with everything. Even though we wanted to travel back to Pennsylvania for the actual court day, we could not do it for personal reasons. So we told him that we could not make it to court 5 days before the court date. On the court day, he represented us and got the case dismissed successfully!!! We were so relieved, because when the case was dismissed, the rental company also updated their records and as a result, we will not have to pay for the damages anymore. Josh made the process smooth, and without stress. We already knew from day 1 that we were in good hands. He is very professional and we are very grateful for his help. We recommend him 1000% to anyone who has a ticket in PA. Thanks again Josh! YOU'RE THE BEST!!!

Wonderful Attorney
I spoke with Josh regarding a traffic violation and he was so kind and nice in explaining the laws and options that I need to understand. He could have asked me to hire him to contest my traffic violation but he said it was not needed unless I really want to do it. He was even agreed to answer my questions even if I don't hire him. He provided a free consultation and best advice one could ask for. I am very happy I contacted him. I wish in future to have him as my lawyer

good for speeding tickets
I got my first speeding ticket and Mr Goldberg was very informative and helpful immediately. I'd never gotten in trouble with the law before and I was pretty nervous about it. it was pretty messed up suddenly finding yourself at the mercy of the state for the first time. it was, uh, "kafkaesque". Anyway, he was easy to get a hold of and communicate with as we prepared for my case. He also makes and sells a popular quick reference product for DWI cases, so he really knows his way around traffic and DWI laws. the judge was actually kind of psyched to meet him because she loved his reference sheet. she even called in one of her aides to meet him lol. Due to my clean driving history he was able to get my 20-over 4-point ticket reduced to 5-over and no points, and he also got my fine reduced by $55 as well. The icing on the cake was that his services were significantly more affordable than a few other lawyers I contacted on here. At first I debated whether I really needed a lawyer to try and get my ticket reduced, but in retrospect contacting and hiring Mr Goldberg was an excellent decision, especially for those with zero experience with the law or courts. Hopefully I won't have to hire him again for a while haha.

Approachable with integrity - highly recommended
Joshua was incredibly helpful with a complicated issue that required knowledge of laws from multiple states. He carefully explained my options and clarified all my questions, and provided me with a few ideas to remedy my legal situation, some of which would not require a lawyer. I would highly recommend him for any pressing legal matters - it's rare to find a lawyer interested in genuinely helping people who require it, but not taking advantage of a situation that wouldn't reap huge benefits from hiring an attorney long-term.

Helped me with my PA license suspension!
I called Josh a few months ago and told him about a couple of urgent citations that I had to take care of. He told me that he was very busy, but even so he would be happy to help. He made time to meet after his working hours at an Eat and Park the same day! When I met him, he was very courteous and knowledgeable. He went over all my citations and other open traffic cases and unpaid tickets with me, and then promptly started telling me his plan for how I could fix my situation. Because I had so many points and unpaid tickets, my license had been been suspended. I didn't know what to do and felt helpless, until Josh expertly detailed how we could appeal the suspension and get me back on the road. Josh is very thorough; he is a perfectionist. He has a great eye for details and he was always responsive, affable, and punctual. My court appeal went exactly as he had outlined it to me, and I was able to get my license unsuspended and renewed successfully. I highly recommend his legal services to anyone looking for help.
