Attorney Endorsements

  • Patrick S. Martin

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I represented an opposing party in a complicated consumer litigation matter and found Joe to be consistently informed, well prepared and professional.

  • Jack Enrique De La Piedra

    I've seen Joe try two cases. I learn by watching. The last one I saw was a complicated products liability case involving catastrophic injuries, which lasted two weeks. Joe's closing argument was a seamless blend of law and fact, but what was truly remarkable about it was the way he was able to draw out and slowly build the intensity of the jury's sorrow and disgust. Or maybe it was just me... But the result was a 9.3 million dollar verdict for his client. Joe is a wizard in the courtroom. I could not proffer a higher endorsement of this attorney.
