Joe is a highly-qualifed, technically proficient attorney with expertise in some of the more nuanced areas of employment law. He is excellent with clients (I have referred a Fortune 500 client to him myself), and provides practical, sound advice both with respec to litigation strategy and HR counseling. Joe should receive the highest rating available to him under the M-H Peer Review rating standards.
