5.0 stars 18 totalReview Joseph Jaap
Joe walked me through a number of difference scenarios and possible actions/outcomes for a messy contractual situation. He was knowledgeable, clear, and sensitive to my concerns. If I need legal assistance in this area in the future, I will certainly work with Joe. I highly recommend him.
I learned of Joseph from Avvo, and contacted him via the website that included an instant messaging app. (A mixed blessing for his firm, I'm sure). We then transferred to phone where he counseled (for free) on a potential small-claims legal issue. His advice reflected knowledge of the law and practical experience (how the law really works in the real world). He suggested that I could handle it myself, but offered to engage. He was a good listener, confirmed his understanding of my situation, asked pertinent clarifying questions, and provided answers and rationale that I could easily understand. I'd definitely hire him if I needed him.
I was a partner in an Ohio LLC for 8 years and decided to voluntarily terminate my involvement. I felt I needed an attorney seeing my Company Operating Agreement specified I could not voluntarily withdraw. I was referred to Joe Jaap by a mutual acquaintance.
Joe was the perfect fit for my situation! His responses were very clear and to the point and handled in a very timely manner as well.
I would highly recommend Joe for your legal needs.
When speaking to Joseph via the phone (I am located in California) in regards to separation of properties and dissolution of an LLC, I was impressed with his honesty in regards to my situation. Joseph also took the time to email my California based attorney in regards to Ohio laws!
It is so unusual to find anyone who is willing to spend some time with you and assist you with specific concerns these days. But that is just what Mr. Jaap did when I called asking for advice about a Small Claims Complaint I had received. He helped me understand some of the intricacies of the court system and advised me as much as he was able without me being a client of the law firm. I have a better understanding of my options after speaking with him. It is remarkable that professionals actually take time to consult in such a helpful way. I am very grateful.

I have not had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Jaap but during our phone conversation regarding issues that came up related to an elderly parent he could not have been more helpful. He answered all of my questions and gave me the advise that I needed to help resolve my issues. It was much appreciated and I will not hesitate to use him again if needed.

Mr. Japp did an excellent job of clarifying my options in a dispute with a contractor who did a poor job. He outlined options both to use the services of a lawyer or not, and where using a lawyer might not be cost-effective, he did not hesitate to say so. He responded quickly and in doing eased my mind of several concerns. I would not hesitate to contact him for future needs.

I highly recommend Joseph Jaap, Attorney. In reviewing my list of things to accomplish before death, I contacted Joe for advice and direction. He was very prompt in responding to my request. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy and sincere. His recommendations assisted me in my final plans in a professional, sensitive manner. Although I am not anticipating death in the near future, I wanted legal advice on how to distribute everything so my family will not face decisions that I should have made prior to death. He's the attorney I will reach out to in the event I need an attorney in the future and will recommend him if given the opportunity.

After struggling to find answers on my own regarding a very stressful real estate situation, Mr. Jaap was able to give me very precise, accurate and helpful legal information. He was professional, straightforward and encouraging. Because of his kind encouragement, I was able to negotiate a fair settlement with my bank and avoid much more drastic measures. I cannot thank him enough!

I have worked with Joe on two different situations and found him upfront and to the point. This approach not only helps resolve problems quickly, it helps to keep my fee down.
I would recommend Joe and his company to everyone.
