I have a bit of an advantage when it comes to my review of Joel. We have been friends since high school. The very positive comments I have read in the reviews from people with business experience with Joel leave me with the following thoughts and emotions. "I'm not surprised." "Wow, these people really nailed it - that IS Joel." "I'm proud to call Joel a good friend!" As a friend, I have from time to time asked Joel for his legal opinion. He has always responded not just as my friend, but as my trusted legal advisor. I can't tell you how comforting that is, and how fortunate I feel to know that not only is Joel a great friend, but someone I can count on for professionalism and top notch, thorough, and caring advice should a legal need ever surface. No, you may never be as lucky as me to call Joel a close friend, but I assure you, he will make you feel like one. Way to go, Joel!

Mr brown has earned my utmost respect. he demonstrates understanding of the law, excellent judgement in its application, and is extremely honest, ethical. and hard working. After years of experience he maintains idealism, kindness, and feels everyone deserves compassionate representation, but will be straight forward about his concerns. His positive style of communication with the other parties promotes professionalsm and promptness between all concerned. Mr brown has represented me on a number of occasions and i have always strongly felt that i was optimally represented.
