I endorse this lawyer. I have known Joey since Law School and what was a polished product then has become a shining example of a great litigator in all phases of the law. He is well prepared and it shows in the way he handles himself in both negotiations and trials. His example is one many lawyers should follow. I recommend him to anyone needing a great lawyer.
