I am a current client of Mr.Joslyn. Before initially retaining an attorney I spoke with many highly recommend lawyers, and after my first phone conversation with Mr.Joslyn, I knew I wanted no one else handling my case but him. Brian spent over 45 minutes speaking with me and for the first time in all of my calls with other attorneys, asked questions to get to know me, not only as a client, but as person. Because of that, Brian was able to have my case sentenced to treatment in lieu of a conviction so that my mistake would not cost me my future and all my hard work and education would not be gone with a felony conviction. His office staff was amazing to me, respectful, helpful, and accommodating as I was traveling from out of state for my court case. On top of everything else, Brian and his staff made financial arrangements with myself and my family that are unheard of! I can tell you that no other attorney would do such. I was arrested for a probation violation in my case, and was worried Brian and his firm would not accept me again as a client as I still owe on my past balance, so I did not contact him. Brian saw my name on the docket when I was in jail for arrangement, came and found me, handled my case so I could post a bond. Not only did he do that without mention of money, a past balance, and most importantly without judgment, he went and spoke with my family in detail for over 30 minutes in the courthouse. As I am sure I am not alone in this, but my family has suffered as much as I have if not more through this ordeal. Knowing that Brian and his firm were there for them, to answer any and all questions, and re assure them that he would do any and everything to make sure I was ok and safe throughout the process, is purely priceless. I would recommend Mr.Joslyn and his firm to anyone dealing with a criminal case. You will not find another lawyer that is so non-judgmental, hardworking, compassionate, and is truly working for your best interest at all costs. I thank Mr.Joslyn and his firm for everything that they have done for me and continue to do.



I couldn’t have asked for be...

I couldn’t have asked for better results in my case. Brian worked hard to get my charges completely dropped. I would highly recommend this lawyer.



I hired attorney Brian Joslyn ...

I hired attorney Brian Joslyn to represent me when I was charged with a felony 5. I was facing up to 12 months in prison and $2500 fine. I was very nervous about my case. Brian answered all of my questions and he informed me of all of my rights, he was extremely knowledgeable in this area of law and analyzed each aspect of my case for an effective legal defense. Brian was able to place me into a diversion program in lieu of any criminal conviction or prison sentence. It is obvious that Mr. Joslyn cares about his clients, knows the facts of the law and is dedicated to his work. I would recommend Brian to anyone accused of a criminal related offense.
