    • I do not recommend Joseph Long.
    • I hired Joseph 1-6 months ago.
    • Joseph handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    He took my police brutality case then dropped me. The reason he gave my lack of commitment because I couldn't take off of work one day when he notified me 12 hours before the appointment. I also could not make an appointment because my wife went into labor. He stated he was more important than my job. With very little investagiting he could of found that the cop was guilty of it more than once and it was covered up. When giving me back my file it did not have one piece of information from the opposing party. He also belittled my injuries which consisted of a busted nose, whip lash, busted chin (which left scar), bruised eye and face, amoung many other things. It was a horrible experience that was made worse by our choice in attorney.

    • I recommend Joseph Long.
    • I hired Joseph 1-3 years ago.
    • Joseph handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I was looking at life without the possibility of parole for what I thought was defending myself. I was diagnosed with PTSD from a home invasion that happened to me and my family 2 years prior to this incident. My mind blanked everything out so I could'nt remember much if anything at all, I felt hopeless and sitting in EBRPP and feeling hopeless, until Joe came out of nowhere and took on my case. All he had to work with is basically the evidence from the scene of the incident. Joe called in a forensic expert and the doctor that was treating me for the PTSD, between Joe and the expert witnesses if Helen Keller herself was sitting in the court room she would have seen the evidence clearly. To cut a long story short, I am now home with my family thanks to Joe, I owe him my life. Very highly recommended, very thorough and highly proficient in the court of law. Thanks Joe, ALL THE WAY SIR!!!!!!!

    • I recommend Joseph Long.
    • I hired Joseph more than 3 years ago.
    • Joseph handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    The prosecutor wanted me to take a plea. Joe took the case to trial and destroyed the police on cross examination. I won a directed verdict. I researched a lot of lawyers when I got my DWI. They all talk a good game but I am here to tell you, this guy walks the walk. He is aggressive, extremely prepared and a very quick thinker. He had those police tied in knots.
