I have told this to Joe several times since I have started using him for my Michigan collection issues that I wish all the Attorneys I used did the job like he does. One of the main things I like about Joe is he is attentive to the needs for the specific case. If something needs to be done immediately he does it.
He also keeps me informed of what is going on and will follow up with opposing counsel if they are dragging their feet, he pushes the case along. He is also very knowledgeable and will lay out the course of action and let me know what to expect.
He is also not afraid to tell me if it is a lost cause and not to waist my money. I know he wants to build a relationship for the long term. I have on several occasions given his name to others looking for an Attorney in Michigan.
I would higly recommend Joe and will continue to use his services.

Joe worked hard, kept me informed, and most important of all gave good counsel on the contract issues I brought to him. Results matter, and I'm happy with those, but the means by which we got those results are equally important. Joe's advice on what to stand firm on, when to compromise, and how to approach the issues in a straightforward and reasonable way were essential to my satisfaction. With his help I'm confident that we got the best outcomes while minimizing both cost and conflict. I recommend him without reservation.
Relationship: Worked together on matter
Joe is one of the brightest and most conscientious attorneys I've had the pleasure to work with. His practice combines the sort of experience--including a prestigious federal appellate clerkship and work on sophisticated, high-profile, corporate matters--you'd expect from a partner at a large corporate firm, with the accessibility, personal touch, and common sense of a solo practitioner. I can also say from firsthand experience that Joe's a superb writer and researcher who produces the kind of concise and engaging briefs that win cases. I would refer my own friends or family members to him without a second thought.
