Great Lawyer
Very informative and easy to deal with attorney. We contacted Josh during a hard time for our family when another lawyer gave us the run around and we only had 2 days til our first court date. Josh was understanding and helped us fast and efficiently. We got a great deal in the end and our family was left feeling extremely grateful for his services.

My Favorite Lawyer
Personable* Knowledgeable* Relentless* Diligent* Professional* Compassionate* Trailblazer … This is how I would define Joshua Danz , my criminal attorney. Not only did Attorney Danz educate me on due process and keep me well informed, he also as a former prosecutor, was able to speak and dialog with the prosecutor at the state attorneys office in which all charges were dismissed. Attorney Joshua Danz fulfilled all obligations he made to my family and I with the inclusion of a successful acquittal prior to an aggressive situation. If ever my family or I needed an attorney again. He would be first choice no questions asked.

Thank you Josh!
Josh is an excellent lawyer who always puts his clients first. He is extremely dedicated to his work and was always available to answer any questions I had. He made me feel very comfortable and confident throughout my entire case. I would highly recommend Josh to anyone in need of a great lawyer. From the very beginning, Josh worked diligently to reassure me of his strategic plan to work with the prosecution. Josh displays a human element that cannot be matched when dealing with such serious issues. He is patient, calm, strategic, and works with integrity, which is hard to find. Needless to say, my case was completely dropped. Thanks again Josh!

The BEST lawyer!
I not only recommend attorney Josh Danz, but I guarantee once you have used his service you too will look no further. He explained the law, outlined in clear language the steps in the process that where needed to be done. He was reassuring, articulate, knowable and effective. Josh made the process so much easier and gave me peace of mind in a stressful but successful outcome. He responds in an extreme timely matter, he is a very knowledge and trustworthy person. There is no other attorney that will work as hard for you. He is a wonderful attorney I could not have been happier and I will never go anywhere else.

Beyond qualified for any job or case that you present to him! The best decision i made was to contact Joshua in handling my criminal case, from beginning to end i saw his dedication, and honestly he made the process so comfortable and explained every single detail.

Great Attorney
Very dedicated Attorney! Since the very beginning Joshua was so accessible, I spoke to him about the case on a Sunday while he was out with his family and had a thorough consultation. He is so easy to talk to and he explains every step of the way. Extreme professionalism, and always just a call or text away, he answers you every single time!! Just what you need in a lawyer. Very caring and honest attorney that listens and seeks the best possible outcome and future for his client. We were so blessed to have found him at such a very difficult time. If you want an Attorney that will give you his 100% , Joshua is it.

Best Outcome Possible
We were in need of an excellent, top-notch attorney to represent our son regarding a serious felony offense. Having no experience in hiring attorneys, we turned to google reviews and someone advised us to check Avvo. We made a list of the top 5 criminal defense attorneys and started making calls. After talking with Josh, we knew he was the person for the job. Josh is extremely professional and caring. He is very straight forward and explained the process that we were facing. He never promised us any results but discussed his strategy on how to get us the best possible outcome. Well, he did exactly that. We can't thank Josh enough for helping us in this situation. Josh, you are truly amazing.

My village needed a lawyer!
Who thought an innocent teenager would benefit from us hiring a criminal defense lawyer? Well, my first instinct was that an investigation would work itself out and I would not need a lawyer. That was not the case! I am convinced that hiring Joshua nipped this whole nightmare in the bud before it became drawn out and life altering. Thank you so much for getting us the answers we could not get on our own. More importantly, you asking the right questions is what that made this whole unexplained picture in some mysterious Dropbox nightmare investigation go away. As a parent, I always thought I knew how to protect my child; in this day in age with complicated technology, dangers are in the most unexpected places. Joshua, I am forever grateful for your intervention and the priceless calm it brought our son and family.

EXCELLENT ATTORNEY
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Danz during an unfortunate time. He represented my son and not only was the outcome fantastic, he made this bad time as pleasurable as possible. He always answered my phone calls and if he was not available he immediately would respond via text msg to inform me when he would return my call. I have worked in the legal profession my entire work career and I would highly recommend him for your legal needs. HE DEFINITELY GETS 10 STARS OUT OF 10!

I almost want to get myself into another legal matter just to be further impressed by his practice.
My experience with Mr. Danz (out of respect Josh) can only be accurately described as exceptional. From the very first communication I felt at ease knowing I was not only well advised and represented but listened to. Josh made sure I was well informed and up to speed as well as carefully ensuring that I understood what he needed to explain and also took great care to properly understand and represent my decisions. When it came to the tactical and technical operations I was confident in his experience and advice. With the points of decision that came from this I was supremely secure in the informed decision and the outcome. Mr. Danz was beyond communicative. Phone calls, email and (when necessary due to my schedule/obligations) text were all prompt and concise. I'd choose Joshua to have my children, let alone further represent me in legal matters. As someone who has had numerous less than pleasant interactions with the legal professional field, I am grateful to have found this office and will always recommend them to my friends.
