The Ideal Lawyer
What an outstanding lawyer. Extremely knowledgeable, professional, and familiar with the process for my out of state DUI. He is efficient and even courteous enough to remind me of time zone difference when needing to meet on Zoom. He used his experience to get the best possible outcome for me. I would 100% recommend.

highly recommend
I got myself into some serious trouble. I contacted Joe and he was VERY knowledgeable. Everything I was going through was foreign to me. He took the time to ensure I knew exactly what he was saying and put everything in terms I completely understood. Joe was very compassionate. I HIGHLY recommend Joe!
