    Joe was very quick in resolving my out of state issue without even having to come back. He also hand delivered paper work on. My behalf because the clerk didn't feel it was important. My over all experience was pleasant and the out come fantastic. Would use again. If needed

    My son and I sat with attorney Pacella, Joe was direct and said he would work to save my sons clean record. His fee was resonable ,as I had talked to other attorney's, and explained any extra charges that might accure above his fee. Joe went thru his part as a lawyer what he could and could not do for us. I felt confident that my son had good representation when we left our meeting. When they went to court it ended up better then we had hoped. I am grateful that I searched around and found attorney Pacella and highly recommend him.

  • Failure to Reply to Multiple Inquiries Regarding Case

    Anonymous review posted on

    Mr. Pacella was more than happy to charge my credit card, but then refused to reply to over 20+ emails to help us understand where we stood regarding our case, refused to reply to text messages, and never picked up a phone call, despite trying multiple times of day over numerous weeks.

    He may be knowledgeable, but it is impossible to tell by his laissez-faire attitude toward communicating with his client.

    Joseph M. Pacella’s response: “Unfortunately, in criminal defense, there are some mentally ill folks. You try to help them but they are their worse enemy. In this case, I terminated representation and refunded more than what was owed. After calling at 3 am repeatedly and emailing me daily health updates which had nothing to do with his case, this person was upset because I told him to stop calling my home after he called my 10 year old son a liar when he told him accurately that I was not home at 9 PM. There is no lawyer that could service this client to his Bi-Polar expectations.”
  • Rape of a child with force

    On December 03 2014 my 13 year old son received a summons to appear in court. He was being accused of child rape with force. I researched local lawyers who handle juvenile cases. I contacted a few and most of them refused to take the case, but Joseph M. Pacella was eager to take the case. He was very confendent in his skills and also the chances of proving my sons innocence. We set up a meeting the following day. He was there every step of the way answer all my questions. Very prosessoional and a kind individual. I recommend him to everyone. He is aggressive, very knowledgeable lawyer and will go out of his way. By the way, my son was found not delinquent. Thank you Joseph M. Pacella.

    I was very happy with Mr. Pacella. He was very upfront and knowledge with the court I had my ticket and was able to get a "Not Responsible" without my presence. I highly recommended Mr. Pacella to handle your traffic ticket. Just make sure you give him all the details about your ticket and driving record so he can make the best case and judgement. Thank you so much, once again Mr. Pacella!

    Joe did a great job in resolving my case with multiple charges even with me living out of state. Most impressive is he would answer my calls and texts very quickly.

    Knowledgable, Professional, and Prompt!

  • My First Experience With A Lawyer

    5.0 stars

    Anonymous review posted on

    Recently, I found myself in a situation where I needed a criminal lawyer for the first time in my life. I was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. I was very scared and wasn’t sure where to turn. I contacted Attorney Joe Pacella and asked him to represent me. Joe met with me immediately. He reviewed the police report as listened to my version of what happened the night of my arrest. Joe was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He explained my options clearly, including the pros of cons of those options, but most importantly Joe listened to me. Based on Joe’s professionalism, knowledge, and what I felt was a personal touch, Joe helped me reach the right decision. Afterward, Joe counseled me and explained everything that would happen to me if I were to get into further trouble with the law. Having Joe Pacella represent me made a very big difference in a horrible situation. B.O., Holyoke, MA

  • Excellent - I'd definitely recommend him!

    Joe handled a contentious litigation matter for me. He was insightful and very aggressive, particularly in obtaining useful information during depositions. He handled the plaintiff beautifully and basically made the case through his deposition work. He also was extremely impressive in both preparing our expert witness and in cross-examining the other side's expert witness. Joe's "common sense" approach and unflappable personality also helped calm me down during what was a very emotional case for me.
