  • Karen JoAnne Sloat

    A few years ago, Joe was my opposing counsel on a case that could have become very ugly quickly. Joe was professional, knowledgeable and skilled at every turn, while also viewing the big picture practically and ethically. I have a lot of respect for his abilities and highly recommend his services to any potential client.
