"Joe worked extensively with me on a very long, drawn out litigation. He kept me informed of developments, gave me guidance as far as what actions I needed to take, and gave me honest feedback on his opinions at various decision points in the case. The case settled for more than we had expected and was worth the wait. Joe did a great job."
"Joe was very informational, and precise on what the next steps would be, explaining how things will transpire. He is a kind and patient person!!! If I had any questions, Joe and his staff were always very quick to respond to any of our needs/concerns. We felt our case was handled with the utmost importance, and we will seek his counsel again if needed. Thank you so much Joe!!"
