    I endorse this lawyer. Joe works hard for injury victims and helps them navigate the difficult and complex workers' compensation process. I have had the pleasure of working with him on cases where his clients were terminated by their employers. I would not hesitate to refer clients to Joe with confidence that he would represent them effectively and professionally.
