I have had several legal issues where Joe mcCarthy represented Me. Im a contractor and in the construction business you need an attorney that specializes in and knows how things are done in the construction world (I don't want to pay to educate my lawyer) and I found Mr McCarthy to be very knowledgable. With my legal issues Joe always had a good idea where things would settle.

Has always been very helpful in resolving issues on a timely manner or answering legal questions that we may have from time to time. We are very pleased with his services and that's why we have been using for over 15 years.

I have known Mr. McCarthy for many years now. He has been my counsel as well as used my investigative services. I have seen many facets of his personality and aspects of his business and I can say without reservation that he is a very experienced attorney who uses that experience to best represent his client's interests. Mr. McCarthy's knowledge of construction law and the nuances that are implicit in every case, give him a competitive advantage in "reading" the opposing party's inferences and subtleties.
He has shown himself to be fair as well as well as taking the hard line as the need arises.
You can trust his guidance and his counsel, as I have for many years, both as a client and as a construction defect investigator.

I endorse this lawyer. Mr. McCarthy's construction background has made him a particularly capable litigator and mediator, based on my experience on the other side of a case and representing a party in a mediator he handled.
