  • Awesome Lawyer

    This is one guy I recommend to anyone that needs help with felonies. He is very reasonable . . . he speaks with you and helps you. He has helped me get my license back and has helped get felonies dropped off my record. Very affordable and nice. I highly recommend him.

  • He's on your side!

    I've never had anything on my criminal record, I've never had to deal with the justice system at all. From the first time I talked to Mr. Caulder on the phone I felt a weight lift off my shoulder. He gave me great advice on how I should move forward with my case. I was worried about not being able to see my family but he reassured me that everything will work out and after my first appearance I started to see the light. With me being an individual that's never had a criminal record, I'm proud to say hes my lawyer. I recommend everyone to give him a try because he is on your side! He will make sure that justice is served and that it is fair. Read On

  • Awesome Job

    I received a ticket for 20 miles over the speed limit and reckless driving. Joshua got it reduced to a 9 miles over the limit and reckless dismissed by having me go to a four hour driving school. Awesome job Joshua, your the best. The staff was very courteous and always gave my message to Joshua when he was not available. He also was less expensive than three other lawyers I looked into before luckily finding Joshua.
