I worked with Joe Lucas and Ed Siebert several times in the past years and they have always been very responsive and give clear explanations to any questions. They are very knowledgeable and their fees are reasonable for the services.

Awesome Attorney
He was so helpful during the closing of my house. He caught several errors that the sellers attorney missed. Mr. Lucas was very detailed orientated, firm and quite vocal in negotiations with the other party. He explained the whole process of closing to me and gave me great advise during the selling of the house. He told me not to be at the closing to avoid any last minute shenanigans that the buyer might pull but couldn't since he was only there. He has a great legal mind to protect his clients and understands the process. I WOULD use him again and again. I have referred all of my family and friends to him. He rocks!

He helped me with my dad's estate after he died. I knew nothing and was in a very vulnerable state. Everything was finished quickly and the process was explained as we went. He also did all of my estate planning. If I needed to speak to him I was able to- I wasn't passed off to his assistant. Great service

Getting custody of my daughter
I hired Mr. Lucas in order to regain custody of my daughter after a long, embattled divorce. Mr. Lucas took my case when other lawyers thought that I would never win. He explained exactly what I would have to go through and how he would handle my case. He was always honest with me and was always available for consultations. He not only won my case but helped me get a very reasonable amount for child support. He was always friendly and treated me with respect. Whenever I asked him a question, he responded in a manner which was sincere and "down to earth." His staff was also very friendly and efficient.

Attorney at Law?
Joe Lucas Attorney at Law…… Attorney at Law, according to Joe Lucas that is a phrase by definition is not observed with Joe and his staff. After you hire Joe Lucas! At first Joe Lucas sells himself with a good dog and pony show and smoking mirrors, making promises to make you feel are in good hands. Immediately after the closing on your property and/or case and the monies are paid to Joe, for some reason Joe seems to vanish into the woodwork never to be found again, leaving his paralegals such as Kristen Landowski dealing with valid legal question and situations which require the Attorney’s advice. After my closing was complete, there was missed information and payments for services which were to be paid but left to the client to clean up. As a professional Law Firm you would assume your case will be handled correctly with friendly customer service at the forefront? However, what you are led to believe, the actuality is very disappointing. If you ever need to visit Joe Lucas’s office, whether you have an appointment or not, you are met by his Administration Assistant; Lisa Brown who has a rude and cold demeanor whom will immediate kick out and slams the door in your face. You literally left to feel like insignificant! My advice to all seeking any legal advice that Joe Lucas claims he can to handle! DO NOT Hire this clown! Please spare yourself any regrets, get out the Yellow Pages! You’d have a better chance at finding a quality attorney who will treat you with the respect you deserve rather than a third-rate annoyance!
