Won my trial
I struggle to find the best words to express how grateful I am with the favorable outcome of my trial and to say how thankful I am for your good counsel. Thanks, Joe-I'm very relieved!

A tiger at trial
I had a longstanding DWI that had lingered for years. I hired Joe and he was all business. He asked for my medical records and went through the arrest with me, step by step. The trooper seemed well prepared at trial at first and I was worried until I saw Joe in action. He dissected everything that cop said and destroyed the case. By the end of the cross-examination, that cop was ready to go home. I have never seen such a thorough and relentless confrontation...not even in the movies. The fact that he was doing it for me made it that much more satisfying. He had the cop on the stand for over an hour. Joe Long stalked that cop like a tiger stalks his prey. I was glad he was on my side. The end was a formality. Everyone knew it was not guilty. I highly recommend Joe for any legal problem you have. He is super prepared, sharp as a tack and puts the prosecutor on the defense the whole time.

Saved My Life
I was looking at life without the possibility of parole for what I thought was defending myself. I was diagnosed with PTSD from a home invasion that happened to me and my family 2 years prior to this incident. My mind blanked everything out so I could'nt remember much if anything at all, I felt hopeless and sitting in EBRPP and feeling hopeless, until Joe came out of nowhere and took on my case. All he had to work with is basically the evidence from the scene of the incident. Joe called in a forensic expert and the doctor that was treating me for the PTSD, between Joe and the expert witnesses if Helen Keller herself was sitting in the court room she would have seen the evidence clearly. To cut a long story short, I am now home with my family thanks to Joe, I owe him my life. Very highly recommended, very thorough and highly proficient in the court of law. Thanks Joe, ALL THE WAY SIR!!!!!!!

The man to get for a DWI
The prosecutor wanted me to take a plea. Joe took the case to trial and destroyed the police on cross examination. I won a directed verdict. I researched a lot of lawyers when I got my DWI. They all talk a good game but I am here to tell you, this guy walks the walk. He is aggressive, extremely prepared and a very quick thinker. He had those police tied in knots.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.

Can Not Handle Multi Layer Cases
Every encounter is different for different people based on the circumstances, but this is based on my encounter. Very unprofessional in manner and atmosphere. Another attorney made by the system, for the system. A poor representative for himself and a terrible representative for people with complex cases. Very untrustworthy, make sure to consult with other attorneys because this attorney is FULL of misguidance and misinformation, either due to lack of knowledge in the specific area or intentional misguidance. I have a strong legal background so I knew well enough to know what I was being "advised" was false and my previous knowledge and current legal representation confirmed that. Steer clear of this one, or at least reference check anything this guy advises.

Response from Joseph Long October 15, 2015
This person was neither my client, nor a prospective client, but a defendant who represented herself. I hate dealing with unrepresented people, because they don't know the law, but think they do. Then they go on your website to ruin your reputation.
