  • Joseph A Mullaney

    I opposed JoAnn Needleman on several occasions in FDCPA litigation in the Eastern and Middle District Courts for Pennsylvania. I found Ms. Needleman to be fair, rationale, and pleasant to work with in resolving litigation disputes. I recommend her to debt collection agencies in need of FDCPA defense.

  • Nathan D Willner

    I strongly endorse this lawyer. JoAnn is a leader in the creditors' rights industry. As a long time member of NARCA and current president, Joann is highly experienced in all facets of debt collection and the FDCPA. She possesses keen legal acumen and is a top notch litigator. JoAnn is one of the top attorneys in her practice areas and obtains fantastic results for her clients.
