Joe was very responsive to our needs and an excellent communicator via phone, email, text. He was very thorough and knowledgeable of all available resources (local people and real estate records). His options and recommendations were excellent. He even agreed to meet us at his office on a weekend. I highly recommend him for all real estate issues large or small.

As a first time home buyer, I felt very reassured working with Joe. I could tell he had my best interests in mind and was looking out for me to make sure everything went smoothly. A co-worker recommended him to me and I would definitely recommend to a first time home buyer, or anyone else looking for support with their home purchase.

Joe helped with my home sale, which was very smooth. He was very honest and a great communicator. He was very clear about what services he billed for and how the invoices would work. Final cost came in under budget.

Originally contacted Joe 2 months ago on initial consultation about my intention to sell my home by owner, while living out of State. He promptly scheduled a time to speak in spite of the fact that his schedule was very tight at the time, to meet my needs, and was incredibly generous with his time and advice. From the get go I felt he was a highly experienced professional. He also was very personable in our interaction, and empathetic; he took the time to listed to all my initial concerns and needs and address my many questions.
Once I decided to enter my home sale's process, I retained Joe as my RE legal counsel without hesitation. Throughout the past 6 weeks I have felt entirely supported legally, and that he had my best interest in mind at all times. A few tricky issues arose with my buyer during the sale process and Joe was always available and accommodating, even on short notice, to provide his advice considering all possible angles. Thanks to his timely efficiency and dedication, we were able to clear all hurdles and move along the process without delays or later surprises and, what's most important, minimizing additional stress in the process, and having complete peace of mind and a positive outcome in the end.
I highly recommend Joe, without any hesitation, as an outstanding highly diligent and dedicated Real Estate Attorney. Plus being a friendly, empathetic, very easy to work with person. When I decided to sell my home on my own I was worried and anticipated a complex and/or stressful process. Joe proved my fears wrong. My experience with him could not have been better, in all aspects.

My experience with Joe was positive from the first phone contact I had with him where he was professional and courteous. Thereafter, through every step of the process of defending me in my title dispute having to do with adverse possession, Joe was honest, helpful, and detail oriented. The result we achieved was beyond my expectation and I felt I was billed fairly and honestly. Being skeptical about almost everything these days I kept waiting for the experience to turn sour but it never did, right to the end. Thanks for your attentive work Joe!

Joe was very helpful with our land purchase. He responded to emails and voice mails timely. He answered our questions and provided guidance. Joe is someone that you trust and he is always looking out for his client. This was our first time using a real estate lawyer and I highly recommend his services to anyone.

I am very happy to have hired Mr. West to peruse and counsel me on a contract I received earlier in the year. His straightforward and honest assessment of the terms of the contract helped me make a sound business decision that best suited both me and my family. Not only that, but Mr. West’s prompt return of emails and phone calls that made this a pain-free process. I look forward to working with Mr. West again in the future.

Joe worked with me on a joint-ownership property contract and was so thorough and knowledgeable. He went out of his way to explain the different senarios for how the contract could be drawn up protecting both parties.
Joe is down-to-earth with high integrity and a clear understanding of legal issues!

As a real estate investor and entrepreneur, I have been working with Joe for several years now and couldn't be happier with his counsel. Joe is smart, honest, attentive, thorough, and down to earth. In the four years I've used him as my real estate attorney, he has helped me with many aspects of my business. I've hired Joe to draw up offers for properties I've purchased. I've also had him review offers on properties I was selling. Most recently I had Joe do a quiet title action on a tax foreclosure property I purchased. Normally these suits go through without much trouble, but this one was not easy! I am very grateful I had Joe helping me on this one because he went above and beyond what a regular real estate lawyer would do...and I can say that with certainty because I've quieted the titles on a few properties in Detroit with another law firm and they didn't even record the judgement! Joe takes care of everything, keeps you up to date with what is going on, and sticks with it until the end.

I needed to update the deed to my property to include my wife who is currently a non-citizen. Joe responded to my initial email on a Friday afternoon before the weekend, which really impressed me. He was always very quick to answer any questions and explain the process to update my deed. His fee was also very reasonable. We finished the paperwork today, and everything went great.
I recommend Joe for all real estate needs, and wouldn't hesitate to work with him again in the future.
