    Professional and personable. I endorse Joseph because I can count on his comprehensive legal expertise and rely on his ethic of care and high integrity with every personal injury client and case we confer and work on. He is the only Sacramento Personal Injury lawyer that I refer to my own family and friends.

    Joe and I often appeared on opposite sides of cases when he was still based in the Bay Area. I found him to be a good advocate for his clients and willing to work toward a fast resolution of our cases. When I need to refer out a case in the Davis or Sacramento area, he is the first person I contact.
