Joe is a reliable, dependable lawyer that I highly recommend.
I would recommend Joe Backer for many reasons. He leaves no stone unturned and you can tell that he genuinely cares about his clients. He is responsive and listens. My case may not be considered large to many but it was important to me and Joe was a strong advocate on my behalf.
