DUI Reduced to Reckless Driving
Joshua Weiss did an awesome job for me in court. He got a DUI reduced to Reckless Driving, a small bit of Community Service (8 hrs), and the fines dropped at least in half. It has been a very long, hard year of many court dates but when it came to a close it was all worth it in the end. I would recommend him to anyone that is in need of an attorney. I am very thankful and grateful for Josh and his assistant, Rachel, for all of their direction, kindness and help. Joshua Weiss is an awesome attorney and I would recommend him to anyone in need of one. I’ve never been in need of an attorney and am very pleased that I chose him because he rocks at his job!!!

Josh Weiss
Josh Weiss is the best lawyer. I called him when I got into some trouble Rachel talked to me first to set everything up. She made me comfortable, I had my meeting with Josh and I walked out of his office with all the weight I’d been Holden in completely lifted. When I tell you after meeting with Josh you will feel 1000x better I promise that. Josh got my case completely dismissed no questions asked. If I ever need a lawyer again Josh will be the man I call. He’s not too expensive he’ll work with you he goes above and beyond to do his job to make sure you’re satisfied.. Rachel is amazing as well. Thanks so much Josh & Rachel. Josh is the man with the plan..

Joshua Weiss Criminal Defense Attorney Chattanooga TN
Joshua Weiss was so kind to me regarding a serious case case for my son. He even had his paralegal look up his charges and was complimentary of his public defender. He was thorough, knowledgeable, compassionate and went out his way and didn’t ask for any compensation. Lawyers like him deserve to be commended. Paying is forward doesn’t always come with monetary gain. I would highly recommend you, and your firm to anyone who may need legal counsel. Respectfully , Sharon Ricketts

Best Representation I've Ever Experienced
From the very beginning Joshua Weiss' patient and detailed assistance let me know that I had placed myself, and my money in the hands of the right firm. His experience and knowledge of the inner workings of the legal system, supported by a professional and tireless staff not only shepherded me through a very tumultuous and uncertain year, but achieved an outcome far beyond my highest hopes. JP Weiss has been a true blessing, and a tireless advocate. Thank you Mr. Weiss!

Amazing Firm
I can’t express how satisfied I am with this firm and how they handled my case. I will not go to another firm in Chattanooga after this experience. Josh Weis was my attorney and not only did he accurately represent me, he also gave me the professional legal advice I needed to accurately represent myself in my case. I can’t thank him enough for going above and beyond my expectations.

Friendly, Caring, Flexible Payments
I received a pamphlet from Mr. Weiss' firm (among others) in the mail after being arrested for domestic assault. I'm so glad I called him first for a consult, because I will sleep easy tonight knowing I can have him in my corner at my court date. Initially I dreaded making the call because of my previous bad experience with attorneys, but now I only wish I had called sooner. It would have saved me many sleepless nights. Mr. Weiss was patient, extremely informative, eager to help, down to earth and real. I plan to retain his services before my next court date if possible, and he will be my first point of contact if I have any legal issues in the future.

Absolutely Amazing
Words can't describe how good Mr. Weiss and his assistant Rachel. He is very out going. He has explained every step in my process so far. And couldn't ask for a better outcome. I have alot of felony charges in all classes. Having him fight for me makes my stress about the cause ease. I recommend him to fight any case. He puts himself in the situation

Great Asset
I retained Joshua back in 2014 and he was very honest and practical with me. Luckly my charges were dismissed ,but Joshua was prepared either way and made each court appearance. He got the item removed from my record at no additional cost or me having to call and check behind him. I recently needed to obtain that paperwork and his office got it, to me the next business day from me reaching out through a contact inquiry. They are efficient and effective.

Outstanding!!!
Josh was very diligent in working with the DA to allow the best outcome possible for my case. He explained each step of the process with me and made sure I understood the issues I was facing. That allowed me to make the best possible decisions for my case. He taught me to be patient with the legal system and not push to allow the proper channels to work in my favor. Thank you Josh and the whole law firm for making what could have been a life devastating situation turn into a valuable learning point for me. Thanks from me and my family for all the help and support.

The Absolute Best
A little over a year ago I found myself in some legal trouble. I had no clue as to what I was gonna do for an attorney because frankly I couldn’t afford one. A close friend of mine reached out to me after speaking with Josh and told me to contact him for a consultation. So I did. I had a meeting scheduled with him and Rachel, his assistant, a day or so later. During the meeting he went into FULL DETAIL about my rights as an individual and as a potential client. Based off everything that I had told him he responded to all my questions and concerns. He then proceeded to tell me his thoughts and opinions on my particular case and what he could do for me as an attorney if I choose to hire him. I admit on the inside I was a little skeptical at first because I was thinking no way! Well for my first appearance in court Josh got 3 out of 4 charges dismissed and the other one was dismissed after 6 months of counseling and good behavior. Josh did everything he told me he was gonna do and completely surprised me. And what he charged me was a fraction of what everyone else would’ve. He truly is amazing. He takes his job and his clients very seriously and will absolutely do everything in his power to help his client. I wish I could give him more stars because 5 doesn’t do him any justice.

He is the one for the job
Like many have stated, when searching for representation I was won over by josh. He knows the law and he is not afraid to stand up and fight it. He will take on the ones few will not. His assistant Rachel and their staff member Preston is the bomb.com I’m always blowing them up and I’ve never had an issue - prompt and courteous Josh is prepared to go all the way for his clients and I would recommend him to many! If you want someone to truly be on your side when you feel no one else is definitely call josh and see where it goes - the man is amazing ❤️ Thanks for everything you have done and are continuing to do!

Speeding ticket
Attorney Weiss handled my file with the utmost professionalism. He achieved an even better result than I could have hoped for with a minimum of involvement from me. I practiced law for 41 years before retiring and I recognize good legal talent when I see it. I highly recommend him.
