About Joshua

Learn Joshua’s areas of practice.

DUI, CRIMINAL DEFENSE, & PERSONAL INJURY.

Work - that is what we do. Show up, work hard, and do what you say - that was a lesson learned early on from Josh's Father and the guiding principal at Teague Law. We will explore every defense, investigate all the evidence, and fight for our clients at every turn. Attorney Josh Teague will never compromise your case or advise you to settle for less work.

Josh has dedicated his entire adult life to the study and practice of law - he has spent the past 15 years working in a law office, studying the law, interning with 2 Judges, completing an internship program with the United States Attorneys Office, and practicing law himself. In fact, Josh met his Wife, LeeAnn, when she was working for her Grandmother, the Gilmer County Clerk of Superior Court.

Josh is a native of North Georgia with family ties to the community dating into the early 1800’s. Josh is intimately familiar with local area and values, granting him insight into the procedures and attitudes of the local juries, courts, politicians, judges, and prosecutors.

After graduating Kennesaw State University with honors, Josh Attended Florida Coastal School of Law where he graduated in the top 20% of his class, and won numerous awards for his knowledge and excellence in Criminal law, Advocacy, and Trial Skills.
Having gained experience in 2 Judges’ offices, a Federal Prosecutor’s Office, and having Practiced law himself, Josh brings a unique perspective to each case that many lawyers simply cannot.

Josh now focuses his practice on fighting for clients who need help with DUI, Criminal Defense, and Personal Injury.

The practice of law isn't a job for Josh - its a passion - fueled by his desire to fight for those who have no voice, who are unable to fight for themselves, or just need a helping hand. Josh founded Teague Law on the principal that every Client should have an unflinching advocate and he goes to battle for his clients every day with that in mind.

Teauge law will help you
I was in a bind and I needed an attorney to represent me. I did some research, looked at the positive reviews and knew that Josh could help!! He came through and did a great job representing me. I made a mistake but as a result of his detailed investigation he ended up getting all the charges dropped for me! If you’re ever in a bind I would never hesitate again to give Josh and his team a call

Excellent Lawyer
Josh Teague was recently my attorney towards charges that he helped get dismissed. I would highly recommend his services to anyone. He listens, takes time to explain, and gets the results you need. Thank you Josh!

Lawyer review... Joshua Teague
I was in a position where losing my drivers licence would greatly affect my ability to work. Mr Teague was able to negotiate a lesser offense so that I would not lose my license & potentially my job. I am glad I hired him & would highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance.

Speeding ticket for Teenage driver
I would highly recommend using Mr. Teague for an Attorney. He was very helpful and got results way better than I would have expected. He was very professional and down to earth. This is an Attorney you can trust! He'll get the best results you can get.

Excellent Service and results
Mr. Teague offered quick and exceptional service during our bankruptcy. He took all the worry and stress away and made the process as simple and easy as possible. He kept us informed of what we needed to do next and how the process would work from start to finish.

Traffic Ticket
Our 18 year old daughter received a speeding ticket and Josh was able to negotiate it to no points received. While she will still severely punished by us, we no longer had to worry about being dropped by our insurance because of her not paying attention to the speed limit and the speedometer. Josh Teague was great and we would highly recommend him for your legal needs.

Wonderful! Professional, Down-to-Earth, a great Lawyer all around
I came to Josh with a difficult, fully contested divorce with minor children. Thank Goodness for GOOD LAWYERS! I was able to get everything (child support, alimony, assest, etc.) that I needed. I was kept informed about every step of the process. Unlike most attorneys, Josh was friendly and sensitive to the fact this was an emotional hardship for me and my kids. Again, would recommend to anyone. I'm pretty sure he is the "go-to" lawyer for bankruptcy in North Georgia, too!
