Newport, Rhode Island Criminal Defense & DUI Defense Attorney, S. Joshua Macktaz, Esq.
I strongly believe that all clients, and potential clients, are entitled to as much information as possible when facing decisions about legal matters. When you hire my firm to represent you, I am the attorney reviewing and overseeing your case as well as appearing in court with you. You will not be passed off to a partner or a lawyer you are not familiar with. I strongly believe that each client deserves this personal service.
I have over 18 years of experience practicing law both as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney. During my time as a Rhode Island Special Assistant Attorney General, I prosecuted hundreds of criminal cases ranging from disorderly conduct to first-degree murder in every county of Rhode Island.
Before steering my practice to focus on being a Rhode Island Drunk Driving Defense Lawyer, I gave lectures to Rhode Island police academy cadets as an Attorney General Prosecutor. The focus of these lectures was how to conduct proper drunk driving investigations and prosecutions. This unique experience has provided me with a trove of knowledge and insight most defense attorneys lack.
I am available 24 hours a day for emergencies. Do not leave your freedom or reputation to chance. I promise to provide aggressive, personal representation to ensure all of your rights are defended. Call me today for your free consultation: 401-285-2996.
My firm provides aggressive, personal representation and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
