Excellent outcome
Attorney Hargrove fought fast and efficiently to get my alleged case dismissed so that I was not charged. He kept me informed along the way and eased my fears. I would highly recommend him to represent you.

Excellent Attorney
Joshua did an outstanding job representing a family member. He truly cared about all of us and was always very prompt in responding to my many questions. He took time to email or phone and clearly explained what we were in for. It was a difficult time for us and Joshua expressed sincere understanding. And more importantly, he worked very hard to build a defensible case and he won the case! If I ever need legal services again, I would seek out Attorney Hargrove.
