I was very happy with Mr. Pacella. He was very upfront and knowledge with the court I had my ticket and was able to get a "Not Responsible" without my presence. I highly recommended Mr. Pacella to handle your traffic ticket. Just make sure you give him all the details about your ticket and driving record so he can make the best case and judgement. Thank you so much, once again Mr. Pacella!

Joe did a great job in resolving my case with multiple charges even with me living out of state. Most impressive is he would answer my calls and texts very quickly.
Knowledgable, Professional, and Prompt!

Recently, I found myself in a situation where I needed a criminal lawyer for the first time in my life. I was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. I was very scared and wasn’t sure where to turn. I contacted Attorney Joe Pacella and asked him to represent me. Joe met with me immediately. He reviewed the police report as listened to my version of what happened the night of my arrest. Joe was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He explained my options clearly, including the pros of cons of those options, but most importantly Joe listened to me. Based on Joe’s professionalism, knowledge, and what I felt was a personal touch, Joe helped me reach the right decision. Afterward, Joe counseled me and explained everything that would happen to me if I were to get into further trouble with the law. Having Joe Pacella represent me made a very big difference in a horrible situation. B.O., Holyoke, MA

Joe handled a contentious litigation matter for me. He was insightful and very aggressive, particularly in obtaining useful information during depositions. He handled the plaintiff beautifully and basically made the case through his deposition work. He also was extremely impressive in both preparing our expert witness and in cross-examining the other side's expert witness. Joe's "common sense" approach and unflappable personality also helped calm me down during what was a very emotional case for me.
