    I started off a little hesitant reaching out to a lawyer being my first ever ticket, however I took a chance with Joe and his team based on the reviews online. I am proud and happy to be apart of those great reviews I saw. Joe is a true professional, he reassured from the beginning that my tickets would be dismissed and me myself didn't have to do anything with the courts he handled it all. I put my faith in Joe and he returned the favor and I am forever thankful. Shoutout Joe and his team for making my life a bit easier!
