    I endorse this lawyer. I have know Joe Marman for about 15-years and I have referred alot of clients to him, accident clients. I have never had anything but positive feedback from those clients. He is not only very experienced in personal injury cases, but he also knows real estate law and he is an expert in general civil litigation types of cases. He is also a very kind person and is a dedicated parent.
