SO GLAD I HIRED HIM!
My family ran into some financial issues several years back and we ran up significant credit card debt while we struggled to pay bills. Eventually we had debt collectors after us 24/7 and the harassment was almost unbearable. I found Joel and after a free consultation he assured me that he could help me get the debt collectors off my back. Not only did he keep the debt collectors at bay, but he even found out that they were breaking the law and got me $1,000 as a result. He even had the debt collectors pay my attorney fees so I didn't even have to pay for his services. I am so grateful that I found Joel!

Excellent Work
Joel and his team did a wonderful job for me. I always felt I was there most important customer. I was able to get hold of them any time day or night. They took the time to answer any question I had. You will never feel like you are anything less than first priority. Calling Joel was the smartest thing I ever did.

Excellent
Mr. Halvorsen was first hired for a lengthy contractual negotiation that I needed serious legal expertise on. He provided excellent service and follow-up, concise legal analysis, and very professional care. His deep knowledge of legalese and contractual law put me in an excellent position for negotiating exactly what I wanted, and furthermore, he protected me from several things that initially appeared innocuous to my reading, but indeed could have been interpreted against my wishes. At every step, I always felt like I was being well-represented and well-informed. It was always easy to get a hold of him, and he was always willing to answer the numerous questions I had for him. Not only did he make sure that I was in the best possible position throughout the negotiation, but he also made sure to explain in great detail what each questionable section of the contract meant so that I could fully comprehend what I was binding myself to. After my first excellent and completely pain-free experience working with him, I've had him review every contract that I have signed since, and will always recommend him for any and all legal work. I have not yet needed his services in court, however if that day comes, he will be the very first person I call. He is very easy to talk to, extremely professional and courteous, and has always gotten the job done for me the right way. If you need a lawyer who is incredibly smart, perceptive, and hard-working, look no further.

HIGHLY Recommended Lawyer in St. Louis/Missouri area
To anyone in need of a lawyer in the St. Louis/Missouri area, I would highly recommend Joel Halvorsen to represent you as your attorney. On a cold January day, I quickly found myself in a situation in which I had never encountered before in my life. Shortly after being issued a citation and summoned to appear in court, I quickly became nervous, realizing I had no representation whatsoever, and unsure if the court would understand MY side of the story. Reaching out to Mr. Halvorsen was probably one of the best decisions I ever made. He immediately gathered the facts of my incident, clearly explained to me not to panic and that things would be resolved without any major repercussions. He put me at ease faster than I could blink. And, more importantly, when my case came to closure, Mr. Halvorsen made good on the explanation he had initially provided. Serving as my counsel, he appeared for me in court on my behalf and even had my fine reduced! He delivered the peace of mind I sought after such an incident. Mr. Halvorsen's immediate representation allowed me to continue to focus on my job and, more notably, my family. He handled my case like you would expect a truly respected lawyer to handle it: with efficiency and effectiveness. I would undoubtedly hire Mr. Halvorsen again should the occasion arise. And I will indeed recommend him to family and friends across the state of Missouri.

Excellent Attorney For Securties Law
Utilized Joel for some securities legal work. His hourly rate and retainer were more than reasonable compared to that of local competitors. Very happy with the attention to detail and overall candor Joel exhibited. Excellent work for a modest fee.

class action
I consulted with Joel Halvorsen about if there was a legal action for my GTex mesh that was implanted in me in 2005. It had caused me pain for 6 years & was removed in 2011. I still suffer with pain. He advised me he would research the matter & get back to me. A week later i talked to him again & he told me the limitations of time to file for the mesh was expired. He was sorry he couldn't take my case & if there was anything else to please let him know.
