    Over the past year I have had the pleasure of working with Joseph Vredevelt and his firm in connection with two major complex criminal matters. His enthusiasm, dedication, and, commitment to his clients is the mark of a true professional. Joseph is an up and coming young lawyer. We expect great things from him and look forward to continuing our work together.
