Entrepreneur
I hired Joseph to help with a partner dispute I was experiencing during the time I was the CEO of a startup. Not only did Joseph make me feel safe, he held my hand every step of the way and ensured that a positive outcome would emerge. Not only was the end result positive, it was also done in a most friendly manner and did not result in a huge fight erupting between my then partner and I. If it were not for Joseph's advice, calm demeanor, and in depth legal knowledge, I would probably have still been in an ugly legal dispute or lost my company. Bravo to Joseph and the team at PN Lawyers!

Joseph D. Nohavicka - Questions on Notarization
I didn't speak with Joseph D. Nohavicka personally, but he responded to my question with REAL answers. Then, he referred me to another attorney at his firm, Taso Pardalis, to handle my issues - who I spoke with. We've had only a preliminary conversation so far, but Taso seemed very knowledgeable and was informative and patient in discussing details.
