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.
Joe has provided great information and suggestions regarding how best to approach several issues in my business, including an intellectual property/patent question and a non-compete agreement question. He also referred me to partners in the firm who provided great assistance on personal legal issues outside the business. Joe and his partners are highly recommended.
I have worked with Joe over the past five or more years and he has always been available to answer questions as well as give clear and confident advise.
Joe Jaap is always available to answer any questions I may have and to guide me in the right direction regarding business and personal decisions. I have a consulting company now and I am continually recommending Joe Jaap and Barron, Peck, Bennie and Schlemmer... in that I truly believe that having a great, knowledgeable, and accessible attorney should be everyone's top priority, both in business and within their personal life.
I have depended on Mr. Jaap for personal and business consulting services.
I was referred to and sought out Mr. Jaap on two matters. First, was in dealing with a private investment (and how to successfully navigate the private sale of my stock) and the second occasion, I asked Mr. Jaap to review a commercial property lease (retail).
I have found him to be extremely knowledgeable on all of the areas where I needed his help. He has been a tremendous resource for me and I do consider him an fundamental part of my decision making process. He is considerate, thoughtful and direct. All attributes I look for when seeking legal advice. I would highly recommend him.
Joe is on top of his field at at all time. He has yet to let us down and keeps the ball rolling to get the results we need. You cant ask for much more than that. I have recommended Jow more than any other attorney because he is reliable and gets the job done. His service to his client and his community is unmatched.
Honesty is rarely found in any profession. It is his strongest trait. He comes to the point and explains the reasoning. I have found him well read and intelligent.
I called Joe about a family matter. First, I was pleasantly surprised to reach him directly and secondly, that he had time to discuss the reason for my call. Joe was very helpful and was able to recommend a course of action based on our discussion. He also sent me some information that pertained to our conversation.
