Joe's areas of practice include automobile accidents, railroad, and 18-wheeler truck accidents, dangerous and defective products, construction site accidents, complex business litigation, employment discrimination and whistleblower litigation, partnerships, corporations, and estate or will contest disputes, breach of contract cases, and insurance claims and litigation.
