  • Joshua Richard Buhler

    Joe and I sat opposite on a financing recently. Rarely have I had the opportunity to work across from someone as consummately professional as Joe. He is at once an aggressive advocate for his clients, a savvy business mind, a great technician and most importantly a nice person. I especially appreciated his well developed commercial sensibilities and his ability to consistently find common ground in negotiation. I give Joe my unqualified recommendation.

  • Willard C. Shih

    Joseph Lucosky and I have counseled a number of publicly-traded small cap companies. Mr. Lucosky has a wealth of knowledge concerning securities and corporate law, and he uses this knowledge and experience to enable our clients to reach their desired goals. He often counsels clients that do not have extensive budgets for attorney's fees, yet in a cost-efficient manner, he effectively accomplishes his client's goals. The clients speak highly of Mr. Lucosky, and I can tell why. I endorse Mr. Lucosky whole-heartedly.
