  • James Robert Cummings

    Have known Joe for 15 years. He was my first mentor when I got out of law school and continues to be one of the lawyers I always look up to. He is incredibly knowledgeable and always gives great effort for his clients. Joe is a lawyer's lawyer and his clients are lucky to call themselves so.
