  • Henry C. Weatherby

    Joe is an excellent attorney who is very knowledgeable in this practice area and more able than most attorneys to articulate that knowledge to clients and colleagues. He is the author of a book on annuities, one of the most complex financial products to use and plan for effectively as well as one that most attorneys do not understand as well as Joe. He is an excellent choice as an attorney to work with.
