I retained Mr. Emmerth for my divorce and he was GREAT. He talked me thru everything and made sure I understood what I was reading. I really felt he was looking out for me. I am very pleased with my settlement and when thing were not going so good he made me fell at ease. He also talks to you and not at you. I am very happy with the staff as well. They are really Great!!!!

While (like anyone) I’d much rather avoid legal issues, Joe Emmerth brings calm and competence to the entire process. I hired him to quash an emergency subpoena, which he shut down quickly and successfully—and recovered my legal expenses and time off work.
My fiancé and I were pleased with his work and later hired Joe to write our prenuptial agreement—a much more complicated legal process than we had originally thought, but Joe thoroughly and professionally handled on our behalf—and by far, had been the most responsive attorney we’ve ever worked with (period!).
If you want a lawyer who cares enough to tell it to you straight (what the law really says, likely outcomes, best approach to resolve), someone who focuses on brining closure to your current legal situation, and someone who makes the process as painless as it possibly can be, hire Joe!
Times when you need a family attorney are frustrating—and the law (or how a particular judge tends to rule) can be even more frustrating. Your best defense is to hire an attorney who brings strategy and experience and has got your back—Joe’s that guy!

My particular case involved numerous moving parts across international boundaries. Despite these added elements of confusion the process went extremely smooth. Joseph helped to efficiently and effectively navigate the complexities and we arrived at the desired outcome. Thorough, buttoned-up, precise - a true professional.
