I practice criminal defense, and immigration law. I represent criminal defendants in cases at the state and federal level involving DWI, assault, drug offenses, theft, and sexual offenses. My expertise encompasses all areas of immigration law, with special focus on deportation defense, family immigration, appeals and federal court litigation.

I am highly experienced in counseling immigrants and criminal defense attorneys about the immigration consequences of criminal activity. This sets me apart from most criminal defense attorneys, who have a very limited understanding of the immigration consequences for their clients.

Joshua J. Wilson is a University of Arkansas Law School Graduate. He achieved high academic achievement and success in the courtroom. One of Joshua’s favorite stories to tell is about him beating the City of Pittsburg, Kansas on a red light ticket before he was ever a lawyer. Joshua says, “The reason that story is important to me is because it highlights my drive for justice. I know I did not commit the crime and I was not to stop until I proved that.” Joshua lost the municipal court trial (as he says is typical in these cases), but victoriously...

Arrested or facing criminal charges?

Criminal law addresses the government's prosecution of individuals who have been accused of committing a crime. Such laws may be federal, state, or local. The prosecution represents the people of a particular jurisdiction, and acts on behalf of the government by bringing a case against an accused. Under the U.S. Constitution, a person accused of a crime may have the right to a criminal defense attorney during interrogations and certain other times before and during a trial.

Whether you are under police investigation, have been arrested, or are facing charges, having an advocate familiar with the criminal justice system.

Most jurisdictions classify crimes as felonies or misdemeanors, with felonies being the more serious offenses with the possibility of more severe sentences. Some criminal lawyers focus on a specific area of criminal defense law, such as white-collar crime, drug offenses, theft crimes, or violent crimes. You should consult with a criminal defense lawyer early on in the process to preserve options, such as diversion programs or plea bargains.

When hiring a criminal defense attorney, you should evaluate the experience and fee structure of the attorney. Some offer a free consultation to discuss your case.


Accomplice liability: If a person aids, assists, or encourages another in the commission of a crime, they are criminally liable as an accomplice to the crime.

Self-defense: The claim that an act otherwise criminal was legally justifiable because it was necessary to protect a person or property from the threat or action of another.
