Dwi
Josh is a great lawyer but most importantly he is a great human being. You can sense it just by talking to him and even on the phone! When calling other lawyers you could just sense the arragonce they have, but not josh, he’s super down to earth and very informative. Highly recommend to any one In need of a defense lawyer. For what it’s worth (not the price, although josh is highly affordable) my case got dismissed! Would have been happy with josh either way because I could tell he wanted to get the best outcome for me.

Great Dwi defense lawyer
Mr. Zientek did an amazing job in my case. I was looking at my second DWI, and I did not want to do jail time or probation. Since the begining of my case Mr. Zientek stated that he would work for the best possible outcome. Sure enough, the case was resolved in my favor, reducing my charge to a lesser one and having only to pay court costs and a fine, no jail or probation!! Great Job! Highly recomend this lawyer.

Top Notch Representation
Incredibly knowledgeable -- realistic but confident and extraordinary from the start. Was thorough in all aspects and managed to comfort a layman like myself during a particularly daunting time. There were seemingly obscured fluctuations in the laws pertaining to my case during pretrial and Mr. Zientek didn't miss a beat or a detail in his real-time research. He'd been recommended to me with total confidence and flying colors -- and delivered beyond my expectations. Could not recommend more strongly.

Phenominal Outcome!
Mr. Zientek is an amazing attorney! I hired him to have a prior child custody order modified. I contacted him concerned with the situations that were happening to my child and I felt very helpless. From the moment he took on our case I knew we were in capable hands. He worked very quickly and to the full extent of the law to get my child out of a harmful and potentially dangerous environment. One of the best qualities you need in an attorney is someone who thinks quickly and accurately under pressure and that is one of his best qualities. Mr. Zientek is sharp and on point. He counseled with other attorneys frequently to bounce ideas and I really felt like he genuinely cared what the outcome would be for me and my family. I can’t say enough good things about him. He takes pride in his work and reputation and is very by the book, fair, and honest. He would upload every single document for me to review online and I absolutely loved how I was fully informed every step of the way. Our opposing council was not the easiest to deal with and Mr. Zientek was always very courteous and professional. I could go on and on but he is an all-around great guy and I highly recommend you call him right now.

Best DWI Lawyer in Montgomery County
I unfortunately asked for Mr. Zientek's assistance after having a previous lawyer that was horrible. Mr. Zientek is patient, thorough, knowledgeable and leaves no rock unturned on trying to find anything and everything that will help your case. He's easy to work with and explains every detail to you so there will be no surprises. My case was not horrible, but there were a few snags on the police video. My first lawyer said that I should straight up plead guilty, which I found to be unacceptable when paying so much for so called services. Upon hiring Mr. Zientek, he immediately dissected my video and knew all the science/facts about all facets of DWIs. He instantly made be feel better about my chances. He is hands down the best lawyer I have worked with and I have no words to express my gratitude since he had my case dismissed. You're crazy if you don't hire him.

very helpful
Contacted Mr Zientek with general questions about a friend's case. Not only did Mr Zientek provide helpful information and general back ground information on the legal system he provided a few names of other attorneys that might be able to help in the county my friend is in. Very personable and knowledgeable.

Peace of Mind Commitment
I am testifying to the true commited, hard working, efficient, and dedicated sevices of Attorney Joshua Zientek. In 2010 I had a case that weighed me down unnecessarily because I had no clue what could or would happen to my career. I was truly stressed. When I became introduced to Joshua Zientek and his professionalism I knew I was in the right place. He was very informative with me and knowledgeable in what things could be done to help me that I never left a conversation with him feeling stressed. He knew his business and advised me. And as a result this put my mind at peace always which helped me considerably to get through it. He is very fair, and a brilliant person. In the end I was highly satisfied with the result and my career is still in tact. I highly recommend him to everyone who is definitely seeking a satisfactory resolve with great peace of mind. Thank you again Joshua Zientek!!

Miracle Worker!
My 19 year old son received a DUI after a car accident in March of 2014. In July of 2014, my now 20 year old son was sentenced to a year of probation ending in June of 2015. Unfortunately, my son recently had his probation revoked after failing several required drug tests, due to his continued use of marijuana. His amazing DUI Attorney, Mr. Todd Lehn, is no longer a Defense Attorney but he graciously referred us to the equally amazing Mr. Zientek. Mr. Zientek took immediate action and was always available to answer questions... just an email or phone call away. He visited my son in jail within just an hour or two of our initial conversation and promptly set in motion a speedy and successful resolution. My son should have spent at the very least 130 days in jail but, miraculously, Mr. Zientek worked out the deal of the century, not only through is in-depth knowledge of the legal system but also by being strategic and caring. My son will be out of jail in less than 2 weeks from the day he was arrested and he will no longer be on probation. I could not have wished for a better outcome and am beyond grateful to Mr. Zientek for his tenacious and compassionate representation of my son. We will now be following up with Mr. Zientek for my son's occupational license. I have nothing but the highest regard and gratitude for this most excellent Attorney and will refer everyone I know to Mr. Zientek!
