Excellent service
Joe Wojciechowski helped on a litigation case where I lost close to six figures in Crypto due to negligence from a large firm. This happened early in 2022. Joe and his team took on the case, understood what had happened and told me what information I needed to provide. I provided the details required and Joe saw the case through to ensure I got a pretty reasonable settlement. Joe is responsive, informative and someone I would trust and work with again.

Suit of Financial Advisor for failure to do his fiduciary duty
Joe won a suit for me in his suit of my Financial Advisor for his failure to do his fiduciary duty pertaining to his advice to invest into what turned out to be a ponzi scheme. The Financial Advisor pretty much guaranteed that we would make 5% interest on our investment of making loans on real estate. The company we invested in went bankrupt and turned out to be a ponzi scheme. Joe was very up front with us and professional in helping us win our suit.

"I hired Joe Wojciechowski to help me. I was unsure of the type of Attorney I needed to help me with my situation. Joe took the time to listen and walk through the steps of what I needed to do. I truly enjoyed working with Joe. He did a fantastic job with my case, along with educating myself on my legal rights. Joe was prompt with responses, updates, and keeping me informed on the next steps. I would, for sure, hire Joe again!"

Joe
I thought Joe did an amazing job on my case. He was easy to contact when I had questions, and he answered them in a way that I could understand easily. I thought him and his team were very thorough and honest about what to expect. I do not feel like he gave me any false hope. Even though it is not fun going through a lawsuit, Joe made it manageable. I would recommend him any time to a friend. He worked his butt off for my case.

Balanced and Professional
Joe gave us a good overview of what we were dealing with, kept us informed of progress and provided support when we were in mitigation. He truly enjoys his work so his approach was very focused, but not aggressive. He has a way of seeing the big picture while dealing with the hundreds of details. He works with a good team who all respond quickly to inquiries and were nice to work with.

Joe takes on the Banksters... and wins
Joe handled my case expeditiously and very professionally, more so than almost all of the attorneys I've ever hired... and I am 70! His no nonsense approach with clear explanations of "the system" aka the "Deep Bankster State" were refreshing yet sobering. None of the confusion-making, billing-machine tactics, the legal industry is full of. A Good guy!

Working with Joe was an absolute pleasure considering the unfortunate situation I was dealing with! He’s very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with.

Review of Joe Wojciechowski
I hired Joe and his firm Stoltmann Law office to represent me in a case where my investment guy had lost a substantial amount of money in my account. He invested in some very speculative energy stocks which should not have been in my portfolio due to my request for a very conservative investment portfolio. I was very impressed and satisfied with the representation and negotiations on my behalf by Joe and Stoltmann Law offices and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who would be in need of a very fine firm.

Resolution At Last
A year ago we discovered that our financial advisor was less than honest; we suffered large investment losses due to his negligent behavior. We searched the web for someone in the legal profession who was familiar with and experienced in financial recovery; we found Joe. Our case was taken seriously, we received prompt attention, and within two months Joe filed a complaint against our former financial advisor. Joe was up front and honest explaining every detail as our case progressed. Joe helped us build a strong case with a satisfying resolution. We highly recommend Joe Wojciehowski and his firm, Stoltmann Law Offices. The level of personal attention and dedication to correcting a wrong were Joe's main concerns. At no time did we feel like we were set adrift or ignored. Our case has ended and we now have the means to start recovering from a year of financial terrorism. We're not sure what would have happened if we had not found Joe, but we're grateful that he was a major part of our team and we can now move forward in peace and satisfaction.

Lawyer did what he said he would do!
Joe represented us in a case against our financial advisor firm and was able to do a mediation where we received money far and above what we expected!

"I have had the privilege of working with Joe for over a decade. When I first started with Stoltmann Law Offices, Joe was a full-time paralegal and balancing law school at the same time. His ability to handle such a full workload carried over when he became licensed. This area of law is truly Joe's passion. I could not have asked for a better mentor and you are not going to find a better attorney out there to help you recover your investment losses."
