Joe is very knowledgable
Joe was able to help me out on short notice with a business contract; he was very knowledgable and able to work with my needs. Will consult with him in the future on other projects, highly recommend his services.

The Go To Lawyer For Anything Real Estate Related
I have used Joe on many occasions from basic contract writing to quiet title, opening probate, and fighting adverse possession case which we won. Joe and his team are extremely knowledgeable and come prepared to win. Aside from winning in the court room Joe gives you guidance along the way, always educates you on the process, and is a phone call away for any questions. As for contract law, Joe's agreements are stellar and protect our interests I wouldn't hire any other attorney for real estate matters in Philly & Delco.

Easy to work with and Informative
I need some guidance setting up a new LLC for my company and Mr. Console was very helpful in leading me through the whole process.

Great experience
My company hired Joe to help work out and draft an operating agreement. He had excellent input and came back to us with two drafts the day after we'd met. He's likeable, professional, only good things to say about him.

A lawyer you will enjoy working with
Working with Joseph I was immediately put at ease. He was very professional yet easy to deal with in way most attorney's are not. He was easy to deal with, fast and got the project done on budget. 5 stars!

Great Adaptable Lawyer
Joe was great in getting me the result that I wanted in my case. To my knowledge, he had little background with PFAs, but he quickly and efficiently researched everything he needed to know and beyond. I appreciated his work and would hire him again.

Simply Put...amazing Experience
I am a CPA but there are certain times that you simply need a lawyer to assist with estate and other planning items. Joe is absolutely an amazing person and lawyer that goes way above and beyond with his service and attention to detail. He has helped me with estate planning and a real estate transaction and has provided his advice for legal entities as well as plans on what to do vs what he would not recommend. He also goes out of his way to make sure you understand what he is doing. I have referred other clients of mine to Joe, and as you can say a referral is the best form of flattery.

Knowledgeable, friendly and professional!
Mr. Console successfully represented me in an Unemployment Benefits Referee Hearing. I can't thank him enough for helping me through a very stressful and difficult experience. His guidance was absolutely crucial to my case and I couldn't have done it without him!

Great help from a knowledgable guy
Joe has helped us immensely since our business got started. Helping us form an llc, and reviewing and editing our operating agreement. He always has a minute to talk if we have any questions and always responds the same day. Thanks for all your help Joe!

The only lawyer I trust
Joseph has handled everything from my real estate dealings to (unfortunately) my speeding tickets. He's attentive, reliable---and most of all trustworthy. After meeting with him for the first time I got the distinct sense that this guy actually cared about the outcome of what we we're working on and wasn't just there to get paid. I've recommended him to all of my closest family and friends.

Happy with Joseph
Joseph has always been an excellent representative for my company. He has always done adequate due diligence to stay on top of my company's issues. I would certainly recommend his services to anyone!

The best business attorney
As a business owner, I do not have time to research and understand the legal realm. I need someone I trust that can help simplify the legal process. Joeseph is the only attorney I turn to for help with my business. He has helped us in the following areas: contract formation, equity negotiations, and non-disclosure agreements. Each time I use his services, he promptly responds to my calls and emails. Joseph makes us feel like we are retaining a big city law firm for a fraction of the cost. I strongly recommend using Joseph for any business related legal matters.

Estate Planning
Joe prepared an estate plan for my wife and I. Our circumstances were not straight forward and Joe took the time to understand our specific arrangements and asked questions to set a strong framework. We went through a few revisions and Joe was always timely in preparation of the drafts and took the time to review them with us. Joe was also open to our ideas and did not try to pigeon hole us into some canned format. He listened to our concerns and acted accordingly.

Not competent
He started my divorce case, and told me he wasn't competent enough to finish it.
