I came to Joe to represent me in a child custody case. He was honest and up front about everything, he helped prepare me for what might happen and wasn't afraid to get right to work. I felt very comfortable working with him and will definitely go back to him if another issue arises.

Mr. Clarke represented me with the utmost professionalism and integrity. He spent untold hours walking me through the process and making sure I understood all my options, pro and con. I have referred him to at least a dozen other people who have expressed thanks to me for introducing them. I will most certainly continue to refer him.
