  • Justin Johnson

    I have known Joe LeBlanc since law school, and I can personally attest to his superior knowledge of employment and labor law. From the first day I met Joe it was clear he possessed a keen intellect and a first-class work ethic, but what really separated him from his peers was his extremely welcoming demeanor and his innate ability to be reasonable. I would not hesitate to refer potential clients to Joe—I know he will treat them right.
