  • Charles G Smith

    I worked for Michael Joseph for approximately six months, shortly before being admitted to the bar. Now that I am a practicing attorney, I can honestly say that not a day goes by that I don't ask myself what he would do in a given situation (realistically, it's multiple times a day). Mr. Joseph possesses all of the qualities you would want in an attorney. He chose this line of work because he believes in it, and it shows. It just so happens that he's very good at it. In reflecting on my time working under him, one of the most distinguishing traits is his fantastic managerial skills, which equates somewhat with his efficiency and use of technology/adaptability. The traits of a terrific litigator do not often transfer to a managerial skills, but Mr. Joseph again is the exception. This all comes down to his focus, his adaptability, and his drive.
