Joel fought for me and got me everything I demanded
Joel went above and beyond to help me resolve a matter with a business that tried to rip me off. He was always clear and thorough in his communication, timely in his actions, and worked aggressively on my behalf to get me the compensation I demanded. I could not have been more pleased with his representation and would encourage anyone in need of legal counsel to contact Medgebow Law.

Best decision I made!
It was the best decision I made picking Joel as my lawyer. I had a consultation with another lawyer, that told me I would lose my case, and he would just get me the best deal he could. My case was very difficult, without getting into details, it was a civil case that stemmed from a criminal case. Just an idea of how difficult it was, the civil case was going on for 7 years, and it was finally coming down to a trial. When I met with Joel and his partner I felt confident that they would do everything possible to win my case, and they did! They put in a lot of time, not to mention I didn't leave them much time before trial, but they built their case, and delivered it flawlessly in front of the jury, and I was found Not Guilty! My experience with Joel Medgebow was excellent, very reasonable priced, but more importantly he will work very hard on your behalf. Again the best decision I made!

Attorney Joel Medgebow with Medgebow Law saved my life!! I was facing serious time for a charge that I should not have been arrested for. From day 1 Joel Medgebow believed in me and vowed to fight till then end. He encouraged me to have faith in his legal team. He fought aggressively and would not accept any plea that the state offered. After several months of sleepless nights, attorney Joel Medgebow and his amazing legal team BEAT MY CHARGES! I highly recommend this attorney!
