Great job
He did a Great job with my case. He was able to get something done that seemed impossible and even gave a refund on our agreed price because of a change that tried to force un-needed hardships on the family. Highly recommended if you find yourself against the ropes Mr. Nahas will pull through for you when all seems lost. Thanks once again for a fine job.

Miracle worker
Joe was very confident that we would be victorious. He took over my case and had to fix what my other idiot lawyer screwed up. This man, or I should say this God, had somehow kept me out of jail when even I, if I were the judge, would have sent me there! He is very professional and down to earth, but when you get this man in a court room he fights like my Ranger brothers, 100 percent and then some! He filed my appeal and the Commonwealth agreed with our argument and vacated the conviction. If it were not for him, I would be sitting in Camp Hill right now, a felon, counting down the days until my multiple year prison sentence was over. He was even patient with me when I was a bit short on payment due to being unable to find work as a felon and being in and out of the VA hospital. I can't thank you enough Joe, you really came through and saved me when everyone else had given up and told me to plea or asked if I wanted to stay in county or go up state. If you're reading this, look no further, this man is the real deal Holyfield. The only thing you'll regret is that you didn't find him sooner.

Worth the money
Attorney Nahas is well worth the money. My husbands serious charges were lowered to summary offenses because he starts right at the preliminary hearing fighting for you. Also Shirley is so kind and knowledgeable a true asset.

Excellent Lawyer
Nahas has a very good morale with DA'S and judges. Got my DUI downgraded to something much less. He saved my life. If you find yourself in trouble trust me this is the guy.

Professional Lawyer
Joseph Nahas worked for me to get my life back in order when I thought it was impossible. First, he put my mind at ease and told me that we would take it one step at a time. It was a long process, but I felt confident from day one. I had put myself in quite a mess from my alcoholism, his office played a major role in me getting sober, which I am indebted for the rest of my life. Attorney Nahas will work for you , but if you do need to make some lifestyle changes I suggest that you do. It worked for me. A special thanks to Shirley, who takes care of the stuff behind the scenes, her words of wisdom kept me motivated to do the right thing. If you were in a mess like I was, and think that there’s no place else to go try this office.

Attorney Nahas puts the work in!
After being criminally charged with multiple felonies, and misdemeanors, I knew there was only one attorney I could turn to if I wanted a chance at my life back, and that was attorney Nahas. My story is as follows: From the beginning, Joe did not sugarcoat the alleged charges. He sat with myself and my family to explain the severity of the charges and his game plan. Fromm the beginning, Joe weighed in on his opinion of the most likely outcome, which wasn't great, but better than the alternative. Unfortunately, the legal process and court proceedings were not going in my favor, despite Joe communicating on my behalf behind the scenes. The time came months later where it was decided that my fate would have to be decided by a jury at trial. From that moment forward, Joe worked relentlessly with my myself and my family, trying to determine the best way to navigate this horrible situation. It was time to pick jurors. Joe explained the process to me thoroughly and trusted my judgement as well as his own. He even set up a 2.5 hour appointment on the weekend on his own time, to coordinate with my work schedule. We went into detail about the events that happened and we didn't leave his office until every question I had was answered. Months worth of brain racking questions, he answered before I could even ask them. The next day, 1 day before we went to trial, we had another meeting to tie up any loose ends, that day in particular, confirmed what I had been thinking all along. I chose the right attorney and was confident in that. Joe knew my story inside and out, the events that took place and a strategy, better than I did myself! On top of that, there was a rare situation that occurred that we had been trying to avoid in order to have a fair trial. Joe stuck his neck out for me and explained that what he attempted to do in order to get a fair trial, would most likely stain his reputation at the court house with some of the relationships he had made over the years with court officials. Fast forward to trial day. It was suppose to last 1 day. Joe was again very knowledgeable of my side of the case, but also extremely diligent and persistent in his cross examination of witnesses. Joe thought quickly on his feet to some unexpected points that were being made. The trial did not end on that day. We just spent 8 hours in court, hardly anything to eat and within an hour of leaving the court house, Joe is calling me to spend another 3-4 hours WORKING on preparations for the next day. We went over specifics and buttoned up what needed to be until late at night. The next morning with hardly any sleep, Joe went to WORK again for 8 more hours at trial, during which time, he was fighting relentlessly, not only by questioning witnesses, but by demanding the judge take into consideration the law, by citing several pages from a law book. It came down to what I believe was Joe's closing arguments to the jurors, getting up close and personal with them explaining the facts and the charges and how they don't align, that I was proven NOT guilty on all accounts. The emotion that he put into those closing arguments and the huge sigh of relief when they said NOT guilty, made me even more emotional than I already was, knowing how invested Joe was in this case and I knew that he put his all into defending my freedom. This was not just another case for him, he was just as emotional as my family, friends and myself after hearing the verdict. In addition, after the trial concluded, Joe called me and we spent another 30 mins talking/congratulating each other, that shows character and how invested he was! I am forever thankful for the determination, intelligence, and most of all work ethic of Joe Nahas. His staff, Shirley & Anne are wonderful as well and keep you updated each step of the way and remind you of upcoming dates. They are professional and always get back to you after calling! If you find yourself in trouble, this is the man/staff you want to represent you!

Parent of Client
My child was involved in a physical altercation after being assaulted at a party. My child was charged with assault F1 charge, a Simple Assault charge and Harassment charge. Finger printed and mug shot processed and that should have NEVER taken place. However, after meeting with Joe Nahas we new he was the man we needed and best advocate that would pursue justice in this matter. After hiring Joe as our attorney he thoroughly reviewed all the facts surrounding the entirety of the case and he immediately took action to properly litigate and mediate on behalf of (my child) his clients defense. Joe Nahas and his entire legal team is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and genuine. No civil person ever wishes to be in a criminal defense crisis, but if you or someone you know is involved in a criminal dilemma, I highly recommend Joe Nahas Law. He is worth every dollar of the cost to retain and hire him no matter the charge your facing. He is a NO NONSENSE individual that truly believes in justice and fights for his clients. He said to my child “they have to get through me to get to you and that’s NOT HAPPENING!” He and his entire staff led and guided us throughout this entire ordeal and their reassurance and expertise got us through every moment. The end result was all charges dropped/dismissed and only had to pay a fine. My family and I can’t begin to express how grateful we are for Joe Nahas and his entire legal staff. #BESTCRIMINALDEFENSEATTORNEY

Mr. Nahas recently represented my son in a case that involved several misdemeanor and felony charges. After engaging in intensive discussions with the DA, Mr. Nahas negotiated a plea agreement that resulted in two misdemeanor convictions but no felonies. We were pleased and grateful to avoid having felony convictions on our son's record. Mr. Nahas is a strategic, compassionate, and experienced advocate, and his office staff go the extra mile to be helpful and responsive.

I have used Attorney Nahas three times so far for my sons. Everytime he has come through and won the case. I would not even consider using any other attorney. He will go above and beyond for his clients. His office staff is also the best in the field. Excellence across the board.

NAHAS LAW GOES THE EXTRA MILE
I was a police officer facing criminal charges after a nasty divorce involving many accusations. My previous attorney told me I should just settle and take a plea deal. A police officer friend referred me to Attorney Joe Nahas and told me that Joe would fight. And fight he did, from day 1 Joe dove into this case and was 100% honest about everything. I have been around court rooms and lawyers for many years working as a cop, and I have never seen a defense attorney on the level of Joe Nahas. He is extremely intelligent, has an excellent work ethic, and truly cares about your case. Joe is a tough fighter and will go the distance with you. My case went on for a long time due to Covid 19, and he was there every step of the way. Joe was well prepared for trial and knew the case inside and out. Joe handles himself extremely well in the court room and he is well respected. His cross examination skills are the best I've seen. Ultimately I was found Not Guilty on all charges and was able to clear my name and resume life thanks to Joe. His staff is incredible and always gave me updates throughout the process. Anytime I called, I was greeted kindly and my thoughts were always important to them. With their support, it allowed us to prepare extremely well, its a winning team at Nahas Law !

TOP NOTCH !
Easily the best. I was facing some serious charges for a second time. Throughout the entire process, Attorney Nahas was responsive, diligent, and very honest about the case. He also was kind and caring, making it a little easier during a very stressful time. Eventually my case was dismissed and I know this would not have been the outcome had he not been my attorney. His office admins are also AMAZING. When I first called the office to schedule a consult, these women were so helpful and kind about everything!! The entire office is aces!

Simply put: THE BEST.
After a very messy divorce that ended in serious criminal charges, I sought legal help from Attorney Nahas. Joe was phenomenal. He was meticulous! Attorney Nahas secured an unbelievably successful outcome for me. Five stars is far too few for Attorney Nahas.
