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.
My review of Joseph Jaap is that it appears that he is solely interested in taking advantage of rather than in advising his clients. Mr. Jaap charged me at at least 4 times more than I had expected in consideration of the services that I received. He did not provide direct answers to my questions, however provided me information that I already had that is readily available on public websites. Further, Mr. Jaap completely misrepresented the purpose of my reason for hiring him. This attorney seemed to be acting on behalf of others while he charged me for services that I really never did receive. I absolutely do not recommend hiring this attorney or his law firm.
