Amazing attorney with more than satisfactory outcome
After being pulled over for my first DUI I had no idea what the process would be like. Josh was the only attorney who answered my call late at night and was very calming and direct with his recommendations. I immediately hired him as I felt completely at ease and didn't need to look any further for excellent representation. He was available and thorough for any questions I had. He managed to provide me with a plea deal that I was more than happy with, but despite this was more than willing to fight for my innocence should I decide so. I have since recommended Josh London to all my friends.

Best attorney ever
This man help me out so much. I don't know the court system or much of law, but Mr. London is very knowledgeable. Was always attentive and notified me about every step. He was professional, respectful and courteous about my case. He went above and beyond, even after the matter was settled, he was still helping me get informed. When I was trying to filed for amendment, I figured it would be easy, but it wasn't. He took the time to find me number to talk directly to the courts, and he me push rhat through. He went the extra mile for me and let me through every step. If you are ever in a tough pinch call London Josh.

Mr. London is a great lawyer.
I had a 3rd degree DWI and Joshua was able to make The entire process as painless as possible. I was and still am under a lot of stress because of my mistake but Mr. London always put me at ease, every time I called him. I do wish that the end results would have been better but I think that Mr. London did everything he could under the circumstances. I would highly recommend his services to anyone needing a criminal defense lawyer.

Needed reliable help during a dark time
Joshua London and his team were exceptional during a very tough time in my life. Having taken a chance with him, he proved to me he’s more than a lawyer but a man of integrity and morality (things which I value immensely). Throughout the process he was thorough, diligent, and understood the importance of maintaining a personable narrative with me (i.e. he made me feel like a human being rather than another case number). I would highly recommend Josh for your legal needs. He alleviated much of the stress that is the unknown during the legal process and I never once felt misrepresented. It can be a dark time when faced with a legal battle so do yourself a favor and hire Josh as your counsel, it’s the one decision through this ordeal I don’t regret. Thank you, Josh! Your professionalism and character will not be forgotten.

A Lawyer you can count on
Mr. London has been a blessing to me and my family. Through a very long almost 1 year uphill battle, Mr. London never quit or let up at all. In the end I ended up with the best possible outcome of a serious sentence. Not only did he keep me out of jail but he was kind, professional, and thorough. Every detail of the case he went over and took all the steps possible to get me the best possible outcome. I highly recommend if you find yourself in any trouble with the law at all to give him a call.

Professional Legitimate Lawyer
Joshua London represented me for my case and I honestly couldn’t be more please with the outcome. He quickly expressed his care, confidence, and sincerity right away when we first spoke about my situation. I was also very impressed with his experience with assisting not only civilians but military members as well. I’m very impressed with his knowledge about the military law as well. He has even helped me with my case on the military case as well. Therefore, it wasn’t hard for me to identify the right lawyer for me. He will always respond as quickly when you have questions and ensure you are prepared for your case. Again, I couldn’t be more happy with the outcome and I’m grateful I had such a great lawyer to represent me.

Great Lawyer, Great Demeanor
Josh did an OUTSTANDING job representing me. He not only got me a great deal, but put me at ease throughout the whole process. He was always available to text, email or talk on the phone whenever it was needed. His extensive knowledge and experience with the legal system was apparent and his network of colleagues was a huge help as well. I would highly recommend Josh to anyone in need of legal counsel! Thanks Josh and my Family thanks you as well.

Legit, honest, and reliable.
I am very happy I chose attorney Joshua London. He was extremely helpful with my case. The outcome was a slam dunk. He is very resourceful, honest, and fights for you. Joshua London is thorough and will go over every piece of evidence and nothing is missed. No matter how much he may have on his plate he makes you a priority. He is affordable and earns every dollar you spend. Highly recommended and trustworthy.

You are in good hands.
In one of my most frightening and terrible times of my life I felt hopeless and defeated. I contacted Mr. London in the middle of the night from jail, he answered and immediately put me at ease. From that day forward he walked me through each step in the process of my case, making sure I understood exactly what happened and what action we should proceed with that was appropriate and fair. I am very pleased with his professionalism, knowledge and passion. I couldn't have asked for better representation.

I was referred to Josh by a good friend & so happy that I was! I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome on my case! I never had anything like this happen before & he was there to answer all my questions & handle everything. My situation that I thought was the end of the world, was made so much more bearable. From beginning to end he was honest, professional, caring & dedicated to my case. I would definitely refer him to any family or friends in need of legal representation. Thank you Josh for everything, I really appreciated it!

Stuck by me and did a great job
Mr. London did a great job. I actually found his name while I was in jail on a DWI charge, he took my call on a Sunday, and worked with me to get me out. Then COVID hit, and everything was delayed. He stuck by me, was responsive when I had questions, and worked tirelessly for a year to get me a good outcome. I got my car back because he was able to show the prosecutor that what happened in my instance was unacceptable and cast doubt on their case. Ultimately while I hope I do not need to call him again, he will be my first call, no questions.
