Josh was recommended by another lawyer to assist in representing me with my case. He was very professional and thorough with every aspect of my case. His clear explanation of the service that he would provide and what the probable outcome would be was very helpful in deciding to hire him to represent me. The final outcome of my case exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend Josh to anyone needing a trial lawyer's service.

I had some divine intervention in my case in hiring Josh. I had become aware of charges made against me after moving out of Michigan and knew that I would have to deal with them at some point even though they were non-extraditable. I had stumbled upon a bio of Josh while looking through a Top 50 Lawyers in Michigan website. A few weeks later I was picked up in the state I was in by my bondsman and brought to jail. I asked my mother to find an out of town attorney to take on my case. And on her first attempt she found Josh's name and sent him not knowing that he was the one that I had been interested in hiring. Needless to say I hired him on the spot.
The county prosecutor did not make it easy and broke plenty of rules and bent the laws along the way in an attempt to harass or intimidate Josh and myself. Josh handled everything in stride with great professionalism and calm allowing me to stay the course and see the case through. And the results were nothing more than phenomenal. Josh secured a rare and unheard of win. His motion for dismissal via Nolle Prosequi was granted. The case was dismissed "with prejudice" and the three day jury trial was cancelled.
If you are looking for a competent attorney and not just another suit with a "used car salesman" approach to handle your case I would recommend Josh Blanchard every time. And you might be able to find one to work your case for less money. But to that I will tell you that you WILL get what you pay for.

Josh was a tremendous help throughout the entire legal process. He was extremely knowledgable, and went above and beyond for my case. He was reachable at just about any time if I had questions or concerns. The drive that Josh showed to win my case was execptional and if I had to go through the process again, I would not want anyone but Josh fighting for me.

I endorse this lawyer. Josh is a one of a kind and one heck of a trial lawyer. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know who has been charged with a crime and needs a great lawyer. Josh is dedicated to his clients and won't stop until the case is won. If you want an attorney who won't back down then Josh is your man.
