Joel represented me for 3-1/2 years through a very lengthy, difficult, and unusual divorce in which he presented arguments before a judge on 5 occasions.  He was always at the courthouse when I arrived -- prepared, organized and ready to go.   In one short-notice emergency situation, he was in court arguing on my behalf (and won) within an hour and a half of receiving notification that there was an issue.  I, myself, was not even able to make it to the courthouse in time to be present for that hearing!    I can wholeheartedly vouch for his integrity, professionalism, knowledge and ethics.  His unpretentious nature makes him easy to work with and talk to -- I always felt we were functioning together as a team.  Most importantly, his efforts resulted in me being awarded custody of my children and obtaining a financial settlement that allows me to provide for their needs.  A great choice in lawyers!

Dear Joel,

I want to thank you for walking with me through one of the darkest times of my life.  A separation of nearly 40 years of marriage. You guided me me through the legal maze with such caring and kindness and understanding.  Then the ongoing complication of working with the United Stated Government Pension division set up in our court order. You were a wonder getting through all of that for me!!  Having you take care of my End of life wishes and Will this past December was another added benefit.  Joel I want you to know that these past years I do not look at you as just my Attorney I look at you as a great honorable friend.

Joel handled my personal injury case and did a great job!  He took care of the whole process so I didn't have to worry about it and he even came to me to review my case while I was recovering from my injury.  He is a great guy and I will use him again.

I have used Joel for several different types of law.  I am a small business owner and it is absolutely necessary to have a good attorney and Joel is my go-to guy. He has handled business issues for me as well as updating my will and helping me do some estate planning.  And when my wife got in a car accident he was the first person I called.  I would highly recommend him.
