Professional and Honest
After meeting with Joel Surber for the first time regarding my Marital situation I knew that I was talking to the right man. Joel listened and answered all of my questions with honesty and at no time did I feel that he was talking down to me. He and his team were extremely helpful throughout the entire time that I needed them. In my opinion, if you are looking for a Lawyer that you can entrust with your legal situation, you should not hesitate to contact Joel Surber.

Trusted Partner
I have worked with Joel for over 10 years and found him to have integrity and always focuses on your company's best interest. His plan of action is to gain insight to the ultimate likely exposure and resolve with only necessary discovery reducing legal costs. He is excellent in accentuating to the opposing side their weaknesses posturing equitable resolutions. Joel provides accurate legal budgets and provides meaningful updates to the plan of action. Joel’s realistic evaluations enable you to budget legal costs and resolve with equitable resolutions where practical.

Joel and his team are great to work with!
I was in a motorcycle accident earlier this year. The last thing you want to worry about when you are trying to recover from inuries like that is paperwork and dealing with insurance companies. Joel was on it only a few days after the accident and within just 6 months I had a check in my hand. He is very professional, kept me informed about what was going on, and answered all of my questions. I would reccomend him to anyone!

An Attorney for every motorcyclist and more
Joel represented me in a motorcycle accident and there is no doubt that the outcome would have been different without his expertise in the field of motorcycling. He was professional, traveled to meet personally though I lived hours away, and though the lawsuit took years to finally conclude, he kept in contact at every turn. I would highly recommend Joel to anyone who owns a motorcycle who needs representation and to all others for an attorney who cares about their clients.

Highly Knowledgeable Lawyer That Treats You With Integrity & Respect
Joel worked hard to assist me with my accident. He was always available to answer questions, give advice, and went above and beyond in every way. During my recovery Joel called regularly to check on my progress, it really meant a lot to know he was there not only as my lawyer but even as a friend showing concern. If you are in need of a lawyer I do not feel you can make a better choice!
