A great lawyer
Joseph Giaconda helped me through a problem, and was wonderful at his job in several ways at the same time. He was very intelligent and well informed - he found the weaknesses in my opponent's legal position, and the strengths in mine, in a very smart way. he was also friendly, reassuring, professional, and considerate - and made me feel able to contribute to the discussion. A great guy to have on your side.

Great lawyer, extremely smart
Joe Gioconda is by far one of the best lawyers I've worked with over the years. When we give him projects, we know he's going to get the job done well. I highly recommend him.
