Tracey B. January 26, 2023
Can't imagine using anyone else....and can't thank him enough. I worked through a very difficult 2-year divorce, which resulted in trial. The managed, responsible, respectable, strategic and caring approach Joel, his team and broader firm demonstrated throughout the process, was absolutely incredible. I have never felt so confident or safe in what was a very difficult situation. He was fair, honest and upstanding during every step, and held me to these same standards. Joel's approach was methodical, steady and determined, and the outcome reflected that. I can't thank him enough. I have extremely high regard for Joel as a professional, as well as being a great person and pillar in the community. Much thanks to Joel, his partners and great team for helping me move forward in the best possible way. Wish there was a ten-star option...he is that good.
