Hired twice and extremely happy both times
I used this firm twice and I was extremely happy with the results of my case. I'm very glad that I chose this firm to handle my particular issues.

DWI and ChildCustody
I went to speak to Mr. Guillory regarding a DWI that I received about 1 month prior to going in to his office. Once we started taking, I mentioned that I was involved in a horrible custody fight. I didn't realize that Josh handled child custody issues, too. I thought it was two totally different areas of the law, but he explained how much the DWI case could impact my custody case. I am so glad that I went with Josh Guillory for both cases. He and his staff really got me through a very tough period. My criminal charges were handled very much to my satisfaction, better than I ever hoped under my circumstances. My son and I have the best relationship that we have had to date. Thank you to Josh Guillory, Ms. Cindy, and everyone else in his office. I will definitely go with Josh again if I ever need a lawyer.

Protective Order
Oh my goodness, did I need this lawyer. I was involved in a very abusive relationship. My ex would abuse me physically and emotionally. It was a terrible situation. I got a restraining order against him, and then I hired Josh for the trial. I was an emotional wreck, but Josh and his staff had a very calm presence about them that made me as comfortable as I could be given the circumstances. The best thing that I can say about Josh is that he genuinely and legitimately cares. He is very honest, and he just made me feel at ease. I had no clue what to expect. He explained everything to me. We won at trial, and I can honestly say that I can feel more protected because a lawyer helped me. I've never needed a lawyer before, and I won't ever use another one other than Josh Guillory as long as he is around. Thank you!!

Josh is a good criminal defense lawyer.
I went to Josh when after I was charged with a DUI. I was a little embarrased and didn't know what to do. I felt comfortable when I spoke to him, and I'm happy I went with him. What impressed me was that he wasn't scared to go to trial, which is something I've seen in my other lawyers. I'd use him again, but hopefully I don't get into anymore trouble.

Excellent family lawyer
He took the time to actually listen to me. This was helpful because he always had my goals in mind in everything he did. When we went to court, he had me prepared and there were no surprises. I am very thankful.
