Joe is your Man!
My brother was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, he did not have insurance or a will. I needed legal help quickly but did not have an established relationship in the area as I’m from out of state. I found Joe online and was impressed with his reviews. I emailed Joe 4:30 pm on a Thursday with my brothers situation including the need for urgency, Joe called me within a hour. I was not a wreck but wobbling, Joe’s beside manner was comforting as much as his quick response. Joe was out of town at a conference but he procured the information he needed from me , consulted with our family attorney back home and unbelievably produced a will, living will, Power of Attorney, Healthcare Surrogate and Lady Bird Deed by 3:30 the next day. Joe obviously bent over backwards while at the conference to pull this off for a complete stranger with a small chance of repeat business. I enjoy attorney jokes as much as the next guy, but from now on I will always preface a joke with “I’m not talking about Joe here…” so Joe is my hero and I cannot tell you how much pressure he took off my plate trying to protect my brother and niece in a dire time if need. Ine last testament, I have never written a review in my life , good or bad … maybe that tells the whole story !

Excellent, knowledgeable, patient attorney
Joe was hired to assist my family with probate and trust work after the unexpected death of my brother. It was complicated due to paperwork that had not been updated , a divorce, a special needs trust for my nephews that had been poorly written by a different attorney, questions of dollars owed to the estate etc etc. Joe organized the family members involved, arranged meetings and taught us the law and what to expect. He let us know what was needed from us and very patiently listened to our concerns. All emails were answered in a timely fashion and all work with the courts, banks and other attorneys involved was taken care of professionally and as expediently as possible. The probate process takes time but I always felt connected to where we were in the process. I would highly recommend Mr Percopo for legal work in his area of expertise.

Smart and true to his word!
Joe answered all my questions and finished my estate plan on-time after another attorney had let me down. And he didn't overbill me, which I've found to be a rarity among lawyers!

Knowledgeable attorney with a great customer service focus
My business partner and I went to Joe after several years in operation to formally create our operating agreement, a cross-purchase agreement, and the other supporting documentation needed to legitimize our business and take care of the legal details in the event of anything happening to one of us. His expertise in both estate law and business law is clear and he was able to answer our questions in a way we understood. He did a great job putting together the paperwork and was very pleasant, diligent, and personable in every meeting and email exchange. He is a top-notch attorney and should you have a need for such services, I recommend speaking with him.

Quick and Knowledgeable
Joe did a great job walking us through my business operating and buy sell agreement. We were set up with an official company binder, company meeting minutes, stocks and seal in addition to the two agreements. The process was painless on our end, and Joe made sure to answer all of our questions in depth. I highly recommend hiring Joe to help with your business legal needs.

Joe was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in working with us to set-up our Wills, trust, and basic estate planning documents. He answered all of our questions promptly and in terminology that was easier to understand than the "formal" terminology required by the law. I highly reccommend him!
