Joe was referred to me by my mediator when mediation broke down between my ex and I. Joe was a life saver in a very difficult situation. He was always on top of everything and communicated with me throughout the whole process. I continue to recommend him to others.
Joseph Lee Nemelka has been my attorney for almost 3 years and has been great. I have recommended him to numerous people because I have been so impressed. If you are looking for an attorney you will not be disappointed. He is honest, and has a lot of years of experience and knows his stuff. He always gives good advice and his fees are more than fair. He fights for what is best for his clients and makes you feel very reassured.
As a divorced father with children I was concerned that I would already be at a disadvantage in the legal system. Joseph was stellar in the helping to keep my children with me most of the time. He was honest and knowledgeable. Joseph did not try telling me what I wanted to hear. He told me what was relevant/important could explain the reasons behind his guidance. When your bitter ex-spouse comes after you for more money under the guise of getting the children more often it is stressful enough. It was legitimately comforting having Joseph in my corner. I have already recommended him to one friend and one family member, and would absolutely do it again!
Joseph is the ultimate professional. He is extremely passionate about his occupation and there is no better advocate for his clients. I have worked with Joe on several different levels for over 10 years and would highly recommend him to any of my friends who were in need of family law advice or services. Fabulous attorney!
I have worked with Joe for over a year now. He has helped me with my divorce and custody of my child. He is always on top of things and getting things done in a professional manner. He is proficient and takes his work very seriously. I am always very pleased with his advice and the help he gives me. I highly reccomend him.
Joe helped me with some legal issues regarding my business. He was prompt and helped me get everything organized. Thanks for your help...I highly recommend him.
About 6 months into my case, I had a court hearing that Nemelka didn't even show up for. There wan't much movement on my case until that time but it was only the 2nd hearing. I should have seen it coming as I couldn't get them to return phone calls or emails and then I finally had to show up at their office unannounced before getting any attention.
They were very responsive up till the point that they got my $5,000 retainer... Even that is outrageous! Who can afford that? So I put down my retainer and Nemelka Lawyer immediately went silent. Following the hearing they didn't show up to I got little more attention and finally fired them and found another lawyer. I'm still trying to get over $2,000 back from them. I basically got little to nothing in exchange for $5,000 bucks. Do yourself a favor and find someone else to represent your interests.
