I have been in business for 25 years and have spent tens of thousands hiring attorneys over the years. But I have found an attorney that is, in my opinion, one of the best attorneys in terms of client interaction knowledge, experience and motivation to help his clients get results. I highly recommend Joseph Hughes to anyone that needs a dedicated hard working attorney. I had a previous attorney in a case that had me deal with just his assistant. After paying him and not getting results... I hired Joseph. he sat down with me reviewed everything did follow-ups and got a favorable result in a short period of time. - Pat
