Smart, Practical and Determined
Those are the qualities of a great litigator IMO. Joe has them in abundance! First time I retained Joe was for a business litigation where he took over a matter that was not going well and he got it resolved favorably in a short time. We also used him for a landlord./tenant issue that he solved quickly...and much to my pleasant surprise, he returned most of my retainer unbilled! Joe will tell you what you need to hear, not what he thinks you want to hear. He'll tell you when it's time to fight and when it's time to settle. He's looking out for your best interests and will do everything he can to get you the best result possible in the most efficient way. If you have a litigation matter, Joe should be your first and only call.

An excellent, thorough lawyer. I have used him on multiple occasions and the results were always great. We have used him in business dealings and for an insurance case and the results were all positive. As a medical professional, I understand the need to look into the details of a problem and Joe Maurice understands the need to look at all the details of a legal problem. He leaves no stone unturned.

Attentive and determined!
Joe was my attorney for a car accident I had years ago. Initially he was quite honest telling me I wouldn't walk away with much, even though I had been seeking medical help for over a year. To my surprise my settlement was much more than planned and was expedited in a timely manner as well. He and his assistant were very responsive and answered any questions within hours of an email/phone call. Would highly recommend!

Joe did a tremendous job for me with a membership interest purchase agreement. He left no stone unturned and fully made sure I was protected. His attention to detail is what made the difference.
