Joel is very knowledgeable, intelligent, professional, and articulate. He guided me through a challenging period in my life. I had 2 DUI's and I contacted Joel. After we discussed my cases, I hired him. Joel was very responsive and always got back to me if I had questions or concerns. He was able to show the court that indeed I was an intelligent, productive member of society, who had psychiatric and emotional issues that lead to drinking. Furthermore, due to the DUI's I had a large insurance company come after me and Joel handled that challenge swiftly and carefully, and convinced the insurance company to drop their case.
My parents and my wife all commented on how fortunate I am to have found Joel.

Joel was incredible. I have never been in this type of a situation before and it was very overwhelming. He took great care of the situation and my self. He was quick to respond and very knowledgeable. If you ever need a lawyer I would recommend Joel everyday and twice on Sunday. SPE

Joel provided an excellent level of service for our legal representation. He listened to the whole story, the big picture, of not only the troubles we had, but understood the main goal of continuing a process of recovery. Joel also communicated in return with honest answers that educated us on the process and likely outcomes of the case. Joel was diligent finding the time to meet with the ADA and staff to put together the deal that provided the best possible outcome we could expect. Very glad we made the switch from another WC firm to Joel Benecke.
