Terrific lawyer
Michael Joseph took my case, which involved very unusual circumstances, but after hard fought negotiations, he was able to achieve a favorable outcome for me. I was very satisfied with Michael and would highly recommend him.

Best car accident injury lawyer in Westchester
Michael is an excellent, intelligent lawyer who is committed to his clients and works through a case to a successful conclusion. He is extremely well versed, yet down to earth, and will keep you informed on all the details of your case from beginning to end. He is always accessible, and if he is not immediately available to speak with you, you can be certain to receive a call back within a short period of time. Michael handled a personal injury automobile action for me that resulted in a large cash settlement. He was diligent in his preparation and a staunch defender of my rights throughout the entire process. I have no reservations in recommending Michael Joseph to anyone.

Review
I’ll began by saying I’d never been in trouble with the law before and I feared what the outcome would be. I was arrested and had been charge with assault on an officer, along with some other charges. Micheal took his time to break down the facts and create a solid case behind them. With Michaels representation I was cleared of all charges as well as the burden I’d been carrying for 3 years. Not only was I found not guilty, I received a nice settlement for my troubles. I couldn’t be happier with my representation. I will be sure to re use as well as recommend Micheal Joseph to others.

very highly recommend
Outstanding legal work and great customer service. Mr. Joseph fought and beat not 1 but 2 very tough cases for me and was very reasonable with the payments when i was financially unstable. He was also able to get me a settlement for damages. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone with legal trouble.

Michael is a no BS, hard and smart working attorney. I am so glad he was on my side. It was amazing to see him take facts from my case and explain it to the jury in plain English, which won my case. Thank you Michael and keep up the good work.
