Joe was extremely helpful in his advice given to me relative to an unusual case. Joe listened to me, he was very understanding as to my situation, and took time to discuss the case with me.

In short, I’m deeply grateful for Joe. He made the best out of a terrible situation – and left me feeling as whole as he could at the end.

Former Client – November 2020, AVVO Review

I hired Joe to handle a very difficult divorce case. We ended up having to go to court several times and each time came out on top. He has always handled himself professionally and I have the utmost confidence in him.
