Very compassionate, very knowledgeable
I hired Josh, as he came highly recommended by a close family friend, he did not disappoint me. He is very knowledgeable and works diligently standing up for what he believes in. Extremely easy to talk to, very reachable. Kept me informed every step of the way, returned calls, emails and texts right away. Impressed with his performance in court. Would and have recommended Josh.

Excellent DUI Attorney
A great team of criminal defense lawyers at the Alexander Law Firm. No doubt one of the best in North Florida. Mr. Alexander worked extremely hard on my case. I eventually had my DUI charges reduced to a reckless driving charge. I was very happy with their representation.

Great Results
Mr. Alexander did a great job representing me. I am impressed with his results and would strongly recommend him.

Tastefully Aggressive
Joshua handled my high profile divorce case masterfully and quietly. He has great empathy, care, and an ability to communicate all intricacies of a complicated legal case. When it came time to deal with my husband's attorneys, he was courteous, but aggressive. You can be certain that he will fight tooth and nail for your case. There aren't enough words to describe how organized, professional, and masterful he really is. I would undoubtedly recommend him to anyone seeking legal counsel.
