Joe is very understanding, helpful and honest and concise. After talking to Joe, I realized that he was there to help and would do so. Helping someone on disability deal the Insurance bureaucracy and proving them wrong. It was a great relief to know someone was on your side.

Joe was my trial attorney in a personal injury case. I couldn't have gotten through the ordeal without him. His demeanor and skillful lawyering won me the case!

I found Joe Creitz to be exceptionally professional, knowledgeable and effective. I was referred to him by one of his peers who recommended him highly based upon his expertise and track record handling similar claims. Joe met with me to understand my complaint and provided guidance on the merits of my case. He clearly explained my legal rights, his expectations of me and detailed the process that would be required. In the end, he delivered and drove my case to a resolution that was equitable. I would highly recommend Joe Creitz.

Joe Creitz is a zealous and skilled advocate for his clients. ERISA is a complex and ever changing area of the law and Attorney Creitz is well known for his outstanding litigation skills and keen understanding of the complicated legal issues involved in ERISA benefit claims. Due to his compassion for his clients and his clear talent in the courtroom, I fully endorse Joe Creitz.
