Absolutely Exceptional Lawyer
Some lawyers are dry, too serious and come off like a brick. Not Joe. He has a relatable personality. Joe is a very knowledgeable attorney of excellent quality. He is very flexible on payments and ideal for both odd and conventional cases. Joe knew what to do, how to explain it to me and helped me out even though I was going through one of the most difficult financial situations of my life. I am very certain that if I had any other attorney, I would not have had nearly that great of a disposition. Very unconventional case, 3 misdemeanors of each grade, non DUI, which was negotiated to ARD. My experience was in Armstrong County.

Dog bite
When our 9yr old son suffered a dog bite to the face from a neighbors dog we turned to Attorney Joe Pometto for advice and legal representation. I’m so happy we did. Joe along with his paralegals guided us through the whole process, kept us well informed and let us know what to expect at every step of the way. After a settlement was reached he went out of his way to put us in contact with financial advisers so we could make the best, most informed decisions to maximize my sons settlement when he comes to age. I hope we don’t need representation again, but if we do, I wouldn’t hesitate to call Joe again.

Excellent
Joseph Pometto stepped directly into a challenge. He showed up and faced my problem head on with me, the victim. A victim should not need a lawyer but I did. With Joe at my side I was not dismissed. When Justice isn't just call Joe!

Excellent Communication
Joseph made the process incredibly easy on me. I work out of state, and he handled everything in a very timely manner. Was very pleased with the amount of communication, by quickly responding or answering any questions that I had, as well as keep me posted on any updates on the case. Was very pleased with the outcome of my case thanks to Joseph.

Good service and results
Contacted me early on via telephone with an overall game plan. On the court day, he was on time and respectful. He was able to reduce my charge down to no points on my driver's license, which is a result I am happy with. Highly recommend.

Excellent speeding ticket attorney
I hired Joe a few months ago for a speeding ticket I had received. He helped me with the initial consultation by explaining what the process is, what the results that he generally sees are, and what he thought about my specific case. On the day of my hearing he took care of nearly everything, successfully getting my penalty reduced. I would definitely recommend Joe to anyone else in a similar circumstance.
