We hired Mr. Werner to negotiate a settlement on a contract deal. He was great to work with and we would recommend him for sure.

Very helpful
Joe was incredibly helpful during a stressful time. He broke things down in a way I could easily understand and told me what he would do in my situation, which I really appreciated. He's quick and great at what he does. I wouldn't hesitate working with him again if needed.

Highly recommended!
The funny thing is that I found Joe through Avvo, so it's only fitting that I come full circle to write Joe a review here. I was hesitant when I first contacted Joe, but he made a very good impression on me from the very beginning. My initial thoughts were that he was very responsive and timely to my inquiries. He happened to be on vacation when I first contacted him, but he was very professional and still made time for a brief consultation. As I continued to work with Joe, I found him to be very friendly, straightforward and trustworthy. Integrity and timeliness are very important qualities for me when I work with any professional and you'll be surprised how many professionals don't have these qualities. Lastly, Joe does his homework. He gave me good sound advice and everything worked out as he predicted. I would recommend my family and friends to him which means you should too.

Working with Joe Werner has been great! Clear, concise, and open communication. He takes the time to fully explain any details and options during the course of the case. He is courteous, caring and great to do business with. He goes the extra mile to be firm with opposing counsel, and fully represent our concerns, and demands. Joe consistently has his clients best interests in mind during every encounter. I would hands down highly recommend Joe for any litigation needs.

Mr. Werner has been instrumental in assisting my company with difficult settlements and repayment negotiations on multiple occasions over the course of the last 4 years. Mr. Werner's approachability, demeanor, and level-headedness significantly reduced the stresses associated with these affairs and allowed me to focus on making good decisions for long term solutions. Mr. Werner's effective communication and follow-up processes have helped us close out a difficult chapter in my company's history. If you or your organization are looking for a results oriented and focused attorney, you've found the right man for the job.

10 Stars!
I started my own insurance agency and had previously signed a non-compete agreement with my former agency. When I recieved a cease and desist letter from my prior agency's attorney, I was lucky to find Joe to represent me and my new agency. He was very careful to to review my non-compete contract and to advise me on how to proceed without violating any terms of the contract. He drafted a reposonse letter on my behalf and has given a wealth of legal advice to help us continue to operate in a legal manner and to get my prior agency off my back. I go to Joe regularly when different legal matters come up. He is easy to communicate with as I'll normally send him an email describing the situation and he will respond in a timely manner with a very carefully drafted, well thought out and extremely helpful response and advice. I cannot recommend highly enough his services.

Highly Trusted & Reliable Attorney
I've known Joe as a dear friend for many years, and I've always considered him a reliable and loyal friend. Recently I had a tenant-landlord dispute and contacted Joe for his help. He immediately went above and beyond reproach in assisting me in this legal matter, which ultimately provided me a better-than-anticipated result. Joe was efficient with his time, effective in his tactics, and practical in his approach. As my business grows, there's no other attorney I would contact than Joe. I highly recommend him to my friends , family and you.
