I recommend Joe to anyone who needs legal assistance. Joe not only was a great lawyer and extremely successful in my case, he truly cared about me as a client and did anything and everything he could for my case. Unlike other lawyers, he even accepted phone calls at night and on the weekends. In 2013, I was arrested for public drunkeness and we walked out of the courtroom with a verdict that I wasn't even expecting. He was also able to get it expunged off of my record. He helped me more than I could have even asked for, to say the least. Being a penn state student, I was very worried about how this was going to affect me academically, and Joe was able to give me a clean slate. I am more than thankful for Joe and what he did for me, and I would not reccomend any other lawyer in the State College area.

As an undergraduate at PSU I received a citation that required legal guidance. I reached out to Joe for representation in a time when he had much larger cases on his plate.....despite this, he took the time to call me, take my case, and explain the road ahead.
When I had my day in court, Joe stepped up to the plate and we left the court room with the verdict I desired. Joe dedicated his heart and mind my case...despite it being on a much smaller scale than some of his other professional cases at the time.
I highly recommend Joe.

Joe had previously helped a member of my family years ago. When I was facing serious charges of my own I contacted him right away. He immediately came to my assistance and reassured me that my case would be resolved in a favorable way. He did a fantastic job in several court proceedings for me. Always responded right away to any questions I had about my case. Joe is not just an excellent attorney but also cares about each and every one of his clients. Taking calls and emails at night and on weekends. I would reccomend Joe to anyone facing criminal charges. Couldn't have asked for a more caring, professional person to be by my side through the most difficult time.
