I was very nervous. Divorce is unsettling. You need hope. Joe is one attorney who despite being a great listener is good at communication too. He made complex financial calculations sound so simple. What I really liked about him is his self-confidence and his behaviour with the adversary. He is respectful to all and hence wins everyone. I really felt very secure in his presence as Joe was there ready to cover my back. Joe is now like family - what more compliment may I offer!

I spoke with several lawyers before I hired Joe to represent me in my divorce. What I liked most was his straight forward style, ie., he did not tell me what I wanted to hear, but what I needed to hear in order to view the divorce with less emotion and more like a business transaction. I trusted that he was not looking to draw out the process for more legal fees, but to realistically come to a settlement, and was mindful of my priorities throughout the process.
Divorce is emotionally charged and contentious by nature, but at the end of the day the law provides some ground rules and structure, so being mindful of a realistic outcome is important if you do not want to drive up legal fees to only, most likely, get the same results in the long run. I think in a successful / fair divorce settlement both parties leave the table not 100% happy. Joe did a great job in navigating through the emotions and keeping on task, while also fairly representing my best interests. I would not hesitate to recommend Joe and never regretted my choice in placing my trust in Joe.

Joe was extremely professional and knowledgeable throughout the whole divorce process. Joe also showed
real compassion, he was honest, practical, patient and very responsive to all my questions and needs, which made the difference, and this difficult time much more bearable. I could rely and trust his advice thus would highly recommend Joe to my friends and family!
