I was referred to Joe by a mutual acquaintance when my brother was arrested last month. My parents and I live on the other side of the country and were completely helpless. Joe went above and beyond to get us the information we needed, eased our mind by explaining the process and ensured we knew what was going on every step of the way. Charges were dropped, just as Joe thought they would be, and all was well! I would definitely recommend Joe to anyone looking for a great lawyer, he is definitely one of the best!

I had a serious situation with my drivers license. And due to the fact that companies discriminate on your tiny little driving mistakes, they will not hire you if you have a suspension with in 1 or 3 years. Not many people know this. Until its to late! Joe was the best I have seen in my whole life. Most lawyers will take your money. He is honest and he gets the job done.

Joesph Mastro is an excellent lawyer. He gave me a realistic perspective of what was going to take place and how to proceed. His expertise and knowledge were priceless. He answered all my questions and concerns in a kind and thoughtful manner.
Mr. Mastro helped my family tremendously. He advocated for us, made critical phone calls in a timely manner, and communicated clearly. Basically, he navigated professionally through what was a wildly confusing and time consuming process. What could have been a disaster ended mildly. If you are in the same position as our family, I am sorry, but having Mr. Mastro advocating for you will be your saving grace. He is the comfort you need right now during this troubling time.

Joe was an exceptional public defender in San Joaquin County with thousands of cases to his credit. I personally saw the results that he achieved for an often ungrateful clientele. He genuinely cares for his clients and offers an impressive defense. Do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation with him first if you are in or near Oakland and need an aggressive defense.
