I was in need of a new lawyer with expertise in technology start-ups. Joe Wallin was referred to me from a trusted friend and I quickly understood why. From the very beginning, Joe showed concern for my interests and executed to perfection. He and his team were very responsive and communicated very clearly. Going forward, I will definitely work with Joe again and recommend him to anyone. Thanks Joe!

Joe is extremely knowledgable, both about the law, and standard industry practices when it comes to startups, and incentive equity. I was very happy that I had him, and his expertise to walk me through some complicated issues.

Joe and his partner, provided me with the right set of legal advise on a 30 minute phone call which took me so many weeks to understand. Great team

We've worked with Joe for many years on general corporate matters, but recently had the chance to work with him very closely in the process of negotiating a strategic merger transaction. Very impressed with Joe’s work on the deal. Very knowledgeable, had experience with all of the relevant issues that arose, and also understood tax and equity structures really well. Also found Joe to be very detail oriented, responsive and a very genuine, well intentioned person. When in the heat of an intense merger process, an attorney with a positive attitude, great communication skills, and a penchant for negotiations is invaluable. Not only did we get the deal done, we truly enjoyed the process and working with Joe. Highly recommend Joe for M&A transactions specifically and corporate matters more generally.

Joe was recommended to me by Michael Roupp.
I had tried to solve a business acquisition on my own, and was having a difficult time, dealing with my partner.
Joe was responsive immediately, he made himself available by phone, email, and text. He gave me direction, and created a buy /sell agreement that protected me. I would highly recommend him, and will use his services again in the future

We transferred to DWT because of Joe. He has a good sense for what the client needs are and does a great job striking the balance between advising on critical legal matters, however not over lawyering on issues that are not material and represent remote risk to the client. Joe has a strong background in advising Corporations like ours and always makes himself available whenever needed on short notice.

I have had the opportunity to work with Joe for almost two years now, and have known him to be both a constant source of exceptional legal council and encouragement. He knows his work, the startup world and knows exactly what it takes to make success happen. I highly recommend him as a person to have at your side and as a corporate attorney.

I've worked with a lot of lawyers and Joe is at the top of the list, especially if you are building a company. He's a great advisor, pays attention to detail, is incredibly responsive, deeply knowledgeable about tax and equity structures, has a great network, and delivers excellent value for legal dollars. Joe's also generous with his time and a lot of fun to work with.

Joe is one of the best attorneys I have worked with. I have worked with many attorneys on securities and general matters. Joe is professional, thorough, creative and able to help identify solutions to potential problems without taking unnecessary risks. I would work with Joe any time.

Joe provides stellar, excellent and practical counsel to me and my partner in a boutique private equity / venture capital firm that maintains a portfolio of various emerging companies. We swear by Joe's guidance and do not make a move without him.

I first met Joe through a connection at Seattle University, his old stomping grounds. Unlike the lawyers I have met with in the past, Joe gave me a real good sense of his character right off the bat. He is extremely competent and knows how to listen, and dish it out as well. In regard to responsiveness, Joe would return a call or email within minutes. At times I was really impressed at his response rate. He is very open and helpful; willing to share his connections and resources to help his clients achieve their goals. I would recommend Joe above any other lawyer I have worked with n the Seattle area. Integrity, a great sense of humor, and expert knowledge in his field, make Joe my number one choice as a business attorney.
