  • Brad Allan Lancaster

    Joseph Shaub is a man of deep reflection and wonderful humor. In working with Joe as a lawyer, he has shown wisdom and insight. These fine traits emerge from his dual competencies as lawyer and mental health professional, and also from Joe's rich personal life. Joe is intense, warm, funny, and devoted to his clients, both in therapy and in law. I refer people to Joe wholeheartedly.

  • Richard K. Hart

    Joe has the best understanding of any lawyer I know with respect to the issues and feelings that drive conflict. With those insights and his superior knowledge of the law, Joe is the best choice around to resolve issues in a fair, appropriate and cost effective manner. Joe is an honest and compassionate lawyer. I would refer any client to him with utmost confidence.
