    • I recommend Joseph West.
    • I hired Joseph 6-12 months ago.
    • Joseph handled my Business matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    We have used Joe since starting our business in 2011. Being new to small business ownership, we were very apprehensive about hiring a business attorney. We were very fortunate to find Joe. He helped us form our LLC with a solid Operating Agreement that has protected us and our business a few times already. He has been very helpful in negotiations between LLC members. We have also used Joe for real estate issues such as lease negotiations and most recently trademark issues. We have never had a bad experience with Joe and we look forward to retaining his services for years to come.

    Joe handled a small litigation for our university, and was able to bring the case to a full and positive resolution in just a week or two. His writing skills are top notch, as are his communication and organizational skills, and his rates are very reasonable. He has a great sense of enthusiasm for his work, and a cheerful attitude that make working with him a joy. We were thoroughly satisfied.

    • I recommend Joseph West.

    My case was handled extremely well. Joe looked after my interest and made sure that I received a fair treatment. Joe's advice was very valuable and I am happy that I selected him to represent me. Another thing that I appreciated very much in Joe was that he was not looking to make more money but to help me and make sure that I got the best legal service.

    • I recommend Joseph West.
    • I hired Joseph 1-3 years ago.
    • Joseph handled my Contracts / Agreements matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Joe worked hard, kept me informed, and most important of all gave good counsel on the contract issues I brought to him. Results matter, and I'm happy with those, but the means by which we got those results are equally important. Joe's advice on what to stand firm on, when to compromise, and how to approach the issues in a straightforward and reasonable way were essential to my satisfaction. With his help I'm confident that we got the best outcomes while minimizing both cost and conflict. I recommend him without reservation.

    I have told this to Joe several times since I have started using him for my Michigan collection issues that I wish all the Attorneys I used did the job like he does. One of the main things I like about Joe is he is attentive to the needs for the specific case. If something needs to be done immediately he does it.
    He also keeps me informed of what is going on and will follow up with opposing counsel if they are dragging their feet, he pushes the case along. He is also very knowledgeable and will lay out the course of action and let me know what to expect.
    He is also not afraid to tell me if it is a lost cause and not to waist my money. I know he wants to build a relationship for the long term. I have on several occasions given his name to others looking for an Attorney in Michigan.
    I would higly recommend Joe and will continue to use his services.
