I wish I could give Joseph and his team more than a 5 star rating!!
So here's my story, I got a traffic violation some time in January, doing 71mph in a 50mph zone, got stopped by a state patrol officer and received a traffic summons, i faced a fine of over 500$ and 6 points on my license which would've made my insurance skyrocket, even if it was my first ever offense. Joseph and his team, were the first team of lawyers i made outreach to and they responded to my email and phone call in just several minutes, (seriously he answered my email in like 4 minutes!) he was so informative during our first phone call together and even made time to talk again later that week. He was always so patient with my questions, so knowledgeable and didn't lie to me about what my probable solution would be with that particular state patrol officer. Although, he was honest and said the probable cause would be reduction to 3 points, I still decided to trust in his honesty, capability, professionalism and high standard. I paid my retainer and anxiously awaited the court appearance date, (yesterday) (for which Joseph assured me i wouldn't have to show up and waste a day of calling out from work) That same afternoon I received an email from Joseph indicating he miraculously got my points reduced from 6 to ZERO POINTS and a small fine!! The outcome was way better than what i had expected. I am and will forever be so grateful to Joseph and his team for their hard work on this case!!! MIRACLE WORKERS. Trust your traffic ticket with these guys, you wont be disappointed!

Joe handled my family's 3 year personal injury litigation. He pushed the case to trial and fought for us with compassion and tenacity the entire way. We received a large settlement that exceeded our expectations. We have no doubt that is a direct result of his hard work and legal acumen.
We consider Joe to be our family lawyer. We call upon him for everything from a real estate closing to our family's corporate work.
He is simply the best. We highly recommend him.

Based on Joseph's glowing reviews here, and his quick and attentive response to my inquiry, I decided to use his services to get the charges on my ticket reduced.
On a ticket for driving 57mph in a 40mph zone, he was able to get the points completely removed, with only a fine to pay. I didn't have to go the court at all. He was such a lifesaver and so pleasant to deal with. His rate was also quite reasonable. Everything between us was handled via email and a short initial phone call.
I'd never hired a lawyer for any purpose before this, and am so glad I found him. I highly recommend him!
