Attorney Joshua Price treats each case as if they were his own in an effort to ensure everything is being done to get his clients’ the very best results.
I center my full service DUI practice around each individual client. No one client is more important than the other and every single client gets 110% of my attention on their case. My high rate of DUI dismissals and DMV wins is based on the individual attention that every case gets from me personally.
Every single type of DUI case can be won: no matter if you have a .30 BAC or were involved in a bad collision. Too many people look at the negatives of these cases and give up. I personally guarantee that I will fight to do everything possible to have your case dismissed!
