Joel
Joel was very professional, helpful and comforting. Even when it seemed like our case might be one that could not be settled he kept at it and found a good resolution for us. He was recommended to us by another friend who is a lawyer in our area. I would certainly tell any of my friends to call Joel if they needed help, he was great to work with.

A peaceful and fair resolution for all
In cases like ours things usually don't go well for the individuals; the large companies with the larger claims take all the available money drag the case out for decades while the individuals are left with nothing. Joel helped us out by walking us through the documents we needed and by attempting an inter pleader, which worked great. Everyone got something and the case was able to come to a close so everyone could get on with their lives.

Highly Recommend
I've used Joel for several personal and business related legal matters. He always takes the time to listen in order to fully understand the nature of the issues. His advice always seems to be on point and very helpful. Most recently he assisted me with an employee issue that required a delicate approach. Joel provided sound advice and as a result, I was able to address and handle the situation without incident.

Our attorny was Great!!
Mr. Iannuzzi was great and handled our case with kid gloves. This was a stressful case and my wife was ready to throw in the towel. He knew she was under stress and handled most of the paperwork. He was very professional at the hearing and helped us trough every process. Thanks

Real Estate Dispute
2015 we entered into a contract to purchase a private residence. We soon decided that the property did not satisfy our needs and through our agent informed the owner we were no longer interested and were cancelling the contract. This was all done within the time period established by the contract. Some six weeks after the notification and outside the terms the owner announced through her attorney that she would sue for damages to include moving furniture, storing furniture, shipping furniture to family and friends and cosmetic and repairs preparing for sale the total mounting to some $10,000.00 dollars. Our initial attorney advised some one more experienced than he and so we contacted Joel Iannuzzi whom we knew by reputation. Within a day Mr Iannuzzi cited pertinent State Supreme Court decision in the matter, informed plaintiffs attorney who then agreed there was no case and the lawsuit was retracted forthwith. We were so highly impressed by Mr Iannuzzi's efficiency and effectiveness in his swiftness in resolving the question.
