Joe’s practice focuses on injury cases involving automobile and trucking accidents, wrongful death, premises liability and workers’ compensation. Joe also handles injury cases resulting from four wheeler wrecks, motorcycle wrecks, and boating collisions. Joe and the other attorneys at Saladino & Schaaf only represent plaintiffs, devoting 100% of their practice to helping the injured. “Injury law is really what we do. It’s all we do.”
Joe has represented hundreds of injured clients. If he could offer one piece of advice to anyone who has been injured, it would be to call an experienced injury attorney in order to find out his or her rights. “Don’t assume that it will just work out and don’t assume that an insurance company will take care of you. It doesn’t cost anything to call and find out what your rights are.”
Joe is rated AV Preeminent by his peers, the highest rating given to a lawyer by the Martindale-Hubbell lawyer rating service. He was also recently certified as a life member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which is recognized as one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million dollar and/or multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. The Forum was founded in 1993 and less than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members. He is also a member of the Kentucky Bar Association, the Kentucky Justice Association, and the American Justice Association.
