Client Reviews
J. Smolenski December 29, 2020
He is one of the best criminal defense attorneys out of the hole State of Michigan Bar Association I would give in a percentage score of a 99.9% the best criminal defense attorneys I have came acrossed in my time of need with legal charges. The thing is court is based on facts period. Its not a he said she said manner (subjective) but Only Objective when it comes to any type of legal litigation. He takes a very aggressive approach towards the defense for his clients. Also he isn't just some attorney that is just average so to speak but one of the best progressive ones I've ever approached in my life and that's only in Grand Rapids michan and I know approx 200 plus overall. He dedicates his eccentric legal skills and has compassion towards his clients and genuine compassion and care for them. That goes a long ways with me because as most already know attorneys typically are in it for the money which is good and what not but with his unique attorney skills there aren't enough positive words I can express to you about him. The list would take many days if not months to list them all and that's in all honesty. He also is the bang for the buck if you understand that term financially . Thanks Joe I hope that will give others the true sense and opinion just of my own to let others know and get to if being in need of legal services to take what Im saying and be acquainted with my experience I've known and had for myself if they should need it for themselves.
