Joe Veenstra helped settle a 9.7K lawsuit against me for $1,200. A VERY substantial difference. He also voluntarily gave me plenty of useful advice for my business. I would certainly recommend his service.

Addressed issue in a car accident my daughter had
Joe was excellent to work with . Was very prompt in replying to all of my e-mails. He stated what was viable and what wasn't. Offered straight answers and laid out a clear path we would be following. VERY positive end result!!!

LandLord Issue
I cannot thank Mr. Veenstra enough the for assistance he provided in getting my brother's property from the landlord after my brother passed away. Without his help we would have received nothing from the landlord.

Honest Lawyer.
He actually did what he said and actually calls you back. Would recommend. He took over case from a worthless lawyer and did a professional job.

Personal injury
I was struck by a motor vehicle whist riding my bike. As I was new to the La Crosse area, I was grateful to be introduced by relatives to Joe who has very successfully handled various legal matters on their behalf. I enjoyed Joe's straight forward, to-the-point approach, ability to quickly drill into the heart of the issue and deliver all in a very personable fashion. Joe delivered above and beyond my desired outcome. I recommend Joe Veenstra without hesitation and wish him good health, happiness and prosperity.

Accident injury (jet ski)
In the summer of 2015 I was involved in a watercraft accident causing severe bodily injury. I contacted Joe and had an appointment set up to review my case. Within a short period of time I was able to meet with Joe, where he reviewed and accepted my case. Joe did an excellent job and exceeded my expectations. Joe was very easy to work with on a personal level and made sure I understood where my case was. Joe was very flexiable with his work schedule and always made time to set up meetings and/or talk on the phone. Joe made sure to update me step by step. Near the ending of my case/settlement, things seemed to be coming to conclusion. Joe did not give up and fought until the very end and completely resolved my medical bills. This case took 2 years which to some seem like a long time but Joe kept at it and did not give up. I was referred to Joe through a friend that had previously used Joe for an accident resulting in injury as well. I had contacted another lawyer about this case before signing with Joe. I could not be happier I signed with Joe and the results. two major points that I really liked working with Joe was his ability to explain things on my level and his ability to communicate on a personal level. Also Joe was very easy to work with scheduling and always found time when I needed to meet. I am more then pleased with the work and results done by Joe and will refer him in the future. I would rate my experience a 10/10.

Awesome lawyer!
Not only is Joe knowledgeable at what he does but he's got a great personality to go along with it. Joe is very easy to get along with and is very quick with getting back to you. Out of several citations, Joe was able to get all but one dismissed and the one that he was unable to get dismissed he was able to get dropped to a lesser charge and all for a reasonable price! If you are looking for a trustworthy, smart, affordable and just awesome lawyer Joe is definitely the guy you want! I have actually recommended him to several of my friends and I will continue to do so!
