“Before hiring Josh Hamilton thorough due diligence was done on my end to find the best criminal defense attorney Tucson had to offer. After vetting 10+ different high level criminal defense attorneys, I would ask each for a referral of the best criminal defense attorneys in Tucson in their experience and one thing became very apparent, they all said Josh Hamilton was a force to reckon with. I met with Josh and made the decision to work with him, his reputation wasn’t hype. He did incredible work on my case and materialized the best possible outcome I could’ve hoped and prayed for. My own reputation and future have now been secured by working with Josh and his team. I would recommend him without a second’s hesitation to anyone in need of his services. Thank you Josh for all your amazing work.”

“Josh Hamilton did a wonderful job representing me in my case. I was accused of some very serious charges and if I was convicted, I would have gone to prison for a very long time and my life would’ve been ruined. Josh believed in my innocence, fought my case hard, and won motion after motion he filed in court. He was great with the judge. The judge granted the motions Josh filed and in the end, the case was dismissed. I cannot thank Josh and his team enough for the work that they did to prove my innocence and set me free. Words cannot express how thankful I am. He is one of the very best lawyers in Arizona, bar none.”


“Nobody ever wants to get that call in the middle of the night. You know the one, a call from a police officer who’s telling you that somebody you love is in trouble. When the sheriff’s department called to tell me that my son had been placed under arrest on multiple felony charges, I didn’t know what to do. It was a very terrifying feeling. We were so blessed to find Hernandez & Hamilton, PC. Josh Hamilton and his team went above and beyond for my son, he really made us feel like family. Josh & Clay turned over every stone and fought the prosecution with their tremendous knowledge of criminal law. Josh was able to put our family at ease throughout an extremely difficult situation and is truly the reason my son did not have to serve serious time in a state prison.You can tell that Josh is a good person and that he genuinely wants to help people, it’s not just about the money and the notches in the belt. Not only did he listen to us, but he understood the impact.”


“To say that Josh Hamilton saved my life would be an understatement. Facing an incredibly ugly situation, I shopped around for an attorney for a while until I came across Mr. Hamilton. From day one I knew I had found the representation I needed. Josh fought tooth and nail for me and got me the best outcome, considering the dire straits I was in. His staff is incredibly helpful and friendly and Josh’s ability and knowledge of the law is second to none. I could not see myself facing a hell like this again with anyone else at my side. A simple “thank you” will never be enough for all that Josh and the staff of Hernandez and Hamilton did for me.”


“I worked with Josh Hamilton on a very critical area related to my son who was arrested in Phoenix. He did an excellent job we got excellent results his communication is very good. Both strategy and application he did extremely well. He was even there for the follow up.

In my 30-plus years in business I’ve dealt with a lot of attorneys more than I wish I had to. I tell people you have to be very careful with attorneys. In my experience 95% are either not very good, not very engaged or overcharge. But there are 5% who are excellent and you need those Attorneys at the right time. Josh Hamilton although young is one of the 5%.

I’m very grateful that we found Josh when we needed him at a critical moment. He is someone you can trust.”


“As it was quickly realized from the onset of my arrest, I needed legal representation. I came to decide that Mr. Hamilton would be my legal representative as he came highly recommended from a close family friend. From the start and over the weeks that followed, Mr. Hamilton was able to identify with my concerns by outlining, step by step, how to best handle several various approaches to our case. He, and his staff, were exceedingly patient with what limited knowledge I possessed with regard to court proceedings. Additionally, I found, that even from the confines of a county jail, they were always within reach whenever questions arose. Mr. Hamilton also personally oversaw the involvement of my immediate family, consistently making sure that they were kept abreast as the proceedings unfolded. From my families’ report, he and his staff showed them the same professional courtesy and patience as were extended to me. Even during post-conviction.
Mr. Hamilton, through his direct involvement with me, was able to give what I believe to be an accurate character assessment of who I am. This was vital in his negotiations in my receiving a reduced prison sentence.
Overall, Mr. Hamilton has shown both proven methods and abilities. His knowledge is matched only by his desire to help his client move forward confidently. In short, he and his team come highly recommended.”


“Josh was a great attorney and really helped clear my name after being falsely accused of arson.”


“An attorney must be a master in their craft, a sharp listener, an articulate speaker, a masterful communicator and lastly, have a sincere and caring interest in all their clients. Joshua Hamilton exemplifies all these characteristics with a complimentary mix of courtroom showmanship.
My son interviewed 3 attorneys and after a long discussion, we were convinced that Joshua Hamilton was the ambassador we needed capable of handling his case.
Joshua Hamilton is a tried and true defender; once we retained his counsel, he took the time and dedication to challenge every detail of all charges and his team worked relentlessly to find the truth and unveil all the false accusations made against my son. His tenacity with the prosecution remained un-waivered even when presented with a plea bargain. Joshua explained all the pros and cons however his determination convinced my son not to accept the plea. After more litigation between both sides, again my son was presented with a lesser plea….and again my son rejected the offer. My son fully understood the consequences if the case were to go to trial. Joshua’s tenacity in working the case convinced my son that the evidence strongly supported his case to withstand the challenges of a court trial. Finally, in the end, the prosecution dropped all charges and the case was fully dismissed.
I believe defending a client involves more than just defending a person from a legal position. Throughout the whole process, Joshua stayed in close contact with my son, advised him and more importantly, gave my son some peace of mind from the very start. Although he was counsel for my son, Joshua called me and gave me a personal invitation to call his office with any questions during this whole process. I in fact did take him up on his offer several times, and true to his word, he was either available or returned my call within an hour.
After this experience, Joshua has gained my utmost respect. As a 28 year veteran, it’s not in my nature to easily throw a name out there as a recommendation. However, I can tell you that Mr. Hamilton has not only gained my respect, but has earned my trust and friendship in the process.
It is my honor to recommend Joshua Hamilton if you are in need of a criminal defense attorney. His expertise can handle complex cases. Remember, the prosecutors are not your friend, you need solid competent representation…..Joshua Hamilton is the counsel you need!”


“To say Josh Hamilton exemplifies stellar work on a successful and professional level is an understatement. Not only does he exercise these terms phenomenally well but he also established more than just a client/attorney relationship. Mr. Hamiltons approach to me was one of care and concern. His restless work and didication to my case led to a successful outcome, an outcome he did not guarantee but assured me that everything was going to be ok. I can honestly say that this guy is full of surprises, his strategic ways of prioritizing what he’s presented to work with is what led to his success in my case. I got a good lawyer, and I’d recommend him to anyone out there who finds themselves in a pickle one day. Thank you so much for your time to this case, Josh.”


“My family did the research while I was in jail and found me the best criminal attorney in town. Josh is not only brilliant but he really cares. He was quick to get important things started like requesting the radio traffic be preserved before the police could “loose” it. He promptly served tpd with a no contact letter to protect me form any contact with law enforcement which could harm my case. Start to finish I just could not have asked for more. Josh got 7 out of 8 charged dropped in my case and I didn’t have to do any jail time. Working with this law firm was a positive experience and worth every cent.”
