Our first meeting Mr. Viola quickly became a friend. He handled our legal matters with great care and transparency. Mr. Viola helped to sort out our legal issues in terms that were practical. He was always very professional. He stayed on top of the issues until they were resolved. He is highly recommended!

Joe Viola helped me with a very complicated estate issue. Mr. Viola always returned my phone calls promptly and spent a great deal of time explaining everything that was happening every step of the way. I would recommend Mr. Viola to anyone looking for a responsive and thorough attorney.

I found Mr. Viola by happy accident. I realized I was in dire straits with the IRS on a Saturday and began calling other firms and leaving messages expecting to be answered Monday. I happened across Mr. Viola’s website and realized he was local. To my surprise, Mr. Viola called me back within 30 minutes that Saturday and took his time asking me questions and letting me tell by tax tale which included enduring a levy that had already left me financially paralyzed. Monday he spent researching my situation. I met with him that evening. He clearly explained what had happened and what remedies were available and presented a game plan that was put into place by the end of the week. The explanation and the advocacy was something my previous attorney could not accomplish in over a year. Mr. Viola was able to restore my income while negotiating with the IRS.
I highly recommend Joe Viola. His advice is always clear and to the point, and with a touch of humor.
