Joshua S Davidson

About me

Given an AV® Preeminent™ rating by Martindale-Hubbell®, Attorney Joshua Davidson is an avid protector of the criminally accused in Phoenix, Arizona. As a member of the National College for DUI Defense, he is highly qualified in defending those accused of drunk driving. Attorney Joshua Davidson’s experience as a former prosecutor has enabled him to anticipate actions taken by the other side, and take that knowledge into account when creating solid case strategies on behalf of his clients.
