Tahj Gomes, Litigation Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I met Joel many years ago when we were both young lawyers on different sides of several personal injury auto accident cases. He struck me as one of the young attorneys who would soon be making their mark on the practice. I was right. Over the years, he has expanded his practice to include criminal defense, DUI/DWI, traffic, fish & game, and several other practice areas, and he is now well respected in those areas as well. I believe that Joel's clients are very well served by his skill, experience, and reputation, and that they would be hard-pressed to find a better value for legal representation in those areas.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse Joel Massae. He is both detail-oriented and legally knowlegeable: qualities that you should be looking for in a lawyer. Joel and I have worked together on several complex matters. First, he is versatile in his knowledge and skillset. Second, his command of fish and game law is unmatched by any other lawyer in Northern California. Most importantly, he is a conscientious and effective advocate for his clients in all of his practice areas. Call him if you need help.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Joel is the best and most diversified criminal defense and DUI lawyer in the north state of California. He is also the most renown expert in the area of fish and game laws I have ever known bar none in the USA. He has also handled successfully a number of personal injury cases. He is also famous for his work for and with Chico Sate Students in regard to criminal and DUI/DMV charges in and around the Butte County area and I know he handles matters from Colusa County to Plumas County.
