Professional,smart,and organized
Attorney jerrytone makes you feel like your case is the only case he has he gives you that much attention even though he is a very busy atty. he is very professional,smart,organized,and has a calm friendly manner. I can recommend joe very highly. If you retain atty jerrytone as your lawyer he will always be the atty you can turn to when needed. He gets more accomplished in a month than my previous atty's have in a year. He will fight hard for you if you hire Mr. Jerrytone you will not be disappointed he is the best!!!

Mr. Jerrytone gave me my life back
Mr. Jerrytone gave me my life back. He is truly passionate about his career and genuine. He is very clever and knowledgeable, and most importantly dedicated to his clients. I am very grateful for his help. He cares more about helping people, which sets him apart from other attorneys. I trust him, which is important when you need someone in your corner. Life can throw curves balls your way, and when you need someone on your side, someone to speak up for you when you can not formulate words, you need Mr. Jerrytone. He is a stand-up guy and a voice for the people.

PFA
After being served with a PFA from my ex husband, I'm grateful that I connected with Joseph Jerrytone. I couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable and caring attorney. Even though he was handling several other cases he ALWAYS made me feel as though I was his only case. He was VERY responsive to all my calls and emails. I had total confidence that he would win this case and he did. I highly recommend him!

Joey knows the street and knows the law!
Used Joseph Jerrytone and am impressed! Highly recommended
Posted by anonymous | June 26, 2012
AMAZING!
Joe, was excellent!, He is compassionate and is a family and people person. He went way above and beyond. This included prompt return of my calls, and thinking out of the box. He wasn't anything like a usualy lawyer that fills out the paperwork, past attorneys were quick to make a deal to get out of the courtroom, shows up late, takes days to return calls if ever. He texted me and call me for the small details. Joe's prices were very fair and affordable. A lawyer like this was only available to the rich from my experiences. Next "Super Lawyer"? Yes I you got my vote! THANK YOU Mr. Jerrytone!

Endorse Joseph
Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 28
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I doubt there is anyone as young as Attorney Jerrytone with the legal resources he possesses. Further, he is one of the most fiercely zealous advocates for his clients in and out of the court room. Many attorneys put themselves out as "trial attorneys" or "tough." Most often, these are the same attorneys who will avoid confrontation and trials at all costs. Attorney Jerrytone is one of the few who has the confidence and fearless attitude individuals with a criminal matter need representing them. Why can I say this all with zero exaggeration? Because I've witnessed it first hand."
Unknown Attorney | Apr 27
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Without hesitation can I say that Joseph Jerrytone is a highly competent and highly capable attorney who would be a strong advocate for any client. Joe is among the few attorneys that I have met within recent years that exhibits the utmost confidence and strength of mind necessary in handling a successful legal practice. Because of his experience and knowledge in the field of law, any client seeking honest and fair representation should contact Joe Jerrytone."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I've had the pleasure of knowing Attorney Jerrytone in both a personal and professional capacity for more than four years, and I can say with confidence that his abilities as a young lawyer surpass those of some of the most experienced counsel.
