I have practiced in York County since 1999. I clerked with Judge John S. Kennedy, who currently presides over most vehicle and DUI criminal cases in York County, Pennsylvania.
I am a member of the Pennsylvania Criminal Defense Lawyers, and I have presented at an education event offered by them on thr Right to Confrontation as it relates to DUI law.
I was Treasurer for the York County Bar Association and later a member of its Board of Directors for about a decade.
I am the Treasurer for the Pennsylvania Immigration Resources Center (PIRC) and a member of its board. I do this because I value our country's immigration heritage as well as the freedom to pursue a better life that my ancestors enjoyed. I also believe that legitimate refugees from human trafficking and torture must be offered sanctuary someplace in the world.

Joe is an excellent and knowledgeable advocate for his clients. His skill and dedication especially shine through in the DUI context where Joe doesn't hesitate to challenge the scientific evidence offered by the prosecution.
