Joe has practiced law in Wake County since 1985. He has litigated a wide range of cases in state and federal court as well as before the North Carolina Industrial Commission. Joe has tried to jury verdict personal injury, medical malpractice, land condemnation, construction disputes, and complex business dispute cases across the State of North Carolina, predominantly from the Research Triangle to the coast. His litigation experience also includes disputes before the North Carolina Industrial Commission, including Workers' Compensation and claims under the North Carolina Tort Claims Act as well as the North Carolina Business Court. Joe has mediated and served as an arbitrator in a large variety of disputes since 1999 and attributes a successful track record in resolving cases to his experience in having actually tried the same kind of disputes to verdict. He believes that that experience is important in quickly reaching the core issues of a dispute so that the parties spend their time in mediation efficiently and productively.
Joe is certified as a Superior Court mediator as well as Family Financial mediator.  

Joe's law practice is in Wake County but he mediates throughout the State.  He is also licensed to practice in South Carolina since 2012.
