A co-worker recommended Mr. West for an issue I had involving a right-of-way with a house I purchased. Mr. West met with me and reviewed the issue. He discussed my options and I felt very involved with the process, which was great. In the end, I didn't end with a title claim, but I got the answers I was looking to get. Mr. West was very professional and worked with a sense of urgency. He billed me fairly for his services. If I have any similar issues in the future, I would not hesitate to contact him and will be recommending him to friends and co-workers.
As a real estate investor and user of legal services in general it is refreshing to deal with someone like Joe. Joe is a smart, smart lawyer that has his clients back and genuinely cares about each deal.
Joe has presided over two multi million dollar complex commercial real estate deals for me. His ability to clearly and concisely address issues, go to bat for my interests appropriately, and conduct himself in truly effective manner has been a major asset and component of closing those deals. One of which, I don't think we would have closed without Joe's ability to diffuse a hostile sellers attorney in the face of delays brought on by third party reports. Without Joe's firm management we got our necessary extension and closed the deal!
In my experience with many lawyers Joe stands out someone of integrity. His billing practices are great and extremely fair. Working with Joe has saved me money when I have asked him to collaborate with other lawyers on deals forcing those lawyers to up their game and not waste time.
Joe is the perfect lawyer for complex transactions of any size and someone who is looking for value and loyalty. His integrity makes him of particular value to people involved in commercial transactions that they may not otherwise know how to handle as some legal professionals have been known to take advantage of such a situation. To an experienced commercial real estate market participant, Joe will bring value time and time again.
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 have had the pleasure of working with Joseph West. He explained the process we were undertaking clearly, promptly responded to our inquiries, presented us with various options and provided us with professionally written thorough reports. I would highly recommend Joseph West! He takes pride in his work and provides exemplary service to his clients.
From the moment I hired Joe, I knew I was in great hands. He was able to guide me through the process of my real estate transaction with ease. He made me feel like my case was the most important thing to him by instantly answering any and ALL questions I had. It would be hard to find another lawyer with his amazing commitment and follow through. I would highly recommend Joe 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.
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.
Joe has handled approximately 30 real estate litigation matters for our in-house legal team at an 8,000 employee company. He has handled these matters with a high level of competence and skill. He has achieved great results in these cases, through hard work, attention to detail, and determination to win. With his competitive rates, he presents a great value for companies and individuals looking for an excellent attorney at a fair price.
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.
