About Joseph

Learn Joseph’s areas of practice.

A former felony prosecutor at the El Paso DA’s Office, Joe has oriented his legal career towards civil and criminal litigation.

Prior to entering private practice, Joe worked as a Staff Attorney at Texas Riogrande Legal Aid, Inc. (TRLA), representing low income residents of El Paso, and the most vulnerable members of our community in various civil matters, fulfilling his desire to use his law degree to help achieve justice for residents along the Texas/Mexican border.

After his time at TRLA, Joe spent over three years as an Assistant District Attorney (Felony Trial Division) for the 34th Judicial District of Texas (El Paso). During Joe's tenure at the DA's office, he earned a reputation in the legal community as a fierce, skilled and successful litigator, achieving guilty verdicts in the final nine felony cases he tried.

Following his time at the DA’s office, Joe worked at a boutique litigation firm in Seattle where he practiced civil law, representing both plaintiffs and defendants in complex civil litigation. During Joe’s time in Seattle, he helped achieve multiple favorable settlements for clients in personal injury cases, including a seven-figure settlement. Joe also handled multiple wrongful death cases.

While Joe understands the importance of being willing and able to try cases, he also prides himself on being a skilled negotiator, an area of law that impassioned Joe after earning the top grade in his law school class on negotiation and settlement at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.

Military Career Saved
Without a doubt Joseph was by FAR, the most reasonable and the most trustworthy lawyer I spoke with in El Paso. I ran around for WEEKS searching for a lawyer who cared about myself and my case not the money and that was what Joseph did. I’m in the military and had an AFV Case. Joseph was able to get that case dismissed. Not only did he work with me financially but also personally. I would meet with Joseph and a big part of managing clients is managing their expectations and I couldn’t have had anyone handle it in a more professional and caring way. If you have any sort of charge and you are in the Military and care about your career, I can honestly say that Joseph is the person you need to work with. He gave me paperwork so my chain of command could know what I was doing was legitimate as well as updating me constantly on my case. If you have a legal matter that needs assistance in any way shape or form you can put your trust in this man whether you are a civilian or in the Military. He saved my career from a prematurely ending. Joseph if you read this, I wish you a fruitful career because your commitment to justice and defending clients is true. Any future clients take this information and run with it.

Mr. Veith was very helpful, professional, and attentive to my case. He understood my situation and showed great knowledge of the law and possible outcomes. I highly recommend Mr. Veith if you want someone to help you, not just take your money and let chips fall where they may.

Best possible outcome
Joe Veith was always very honest with me and told me there was only a small chance to get the best possible outcome in my DWI case, nevertheless he was always positive about it, always answering my questions and available which kept me calm and stress free. A few moths later he was able to get me int the DTP program and I feel very satisfied with his services.

Mr.Veith did exactly what he told me he was going to do. He told me he could get me PTD and that’s exactly what he got me. He reassured me that everything was going to be fine. Made me feel comfortable and confident on my case.

Mr.
The first day I met my lawyer he had already reviewed my case and mind you these were very serious felony charges and said it was going to get dismissed if he had any say so about it. He fought hard and always kept me informed about the case, he refused to accept a deal that wasnt in my best interest. At the end of the day i have no criminal record and my case was dismissed because of Mr. Veith.

Highly Recommend
I would highly recommend Mr. Veith for any personal injury case. His approach was thoroughly professional. He was a great listener and a good strategist. Mr. Veith had some innovative ways to negotiate my case. My case settled out of court. It was such a pleasure to have him on my side. He was super responsive over texts and emails. He was punctual and very gentle in communication.

Client
Joe has been my criminal attorney in a family case matter. The phrases that come to mind in what makes him a great lawyer to work with is the commitment and loyalty that he will have for you to work hard on your case. He has shown reliabilty to fight and seek justice and truth. I have great confidence in him getting my case dismissed and can honestly say he will do the same for you. He is a trustworthy person to work with, especially if you have experienced previous corruption in today's court system's. He gives you hope that there are still lawyers in our system that truly care about their clients.
