Great Attorney

Posted by: Jose Carlos H.
Criminal Defense

Great Attorney

I came to Joseph Abrams with a Felony and 3 current warrant arrests and he was very upfront on he was able to work with. No fake promises were given and he was true to his words. He moved fast, and was able to recall my warrants and within a month he solved my case and brought my felony to a misdemeanor. Joseph Abrams is a very effective hardworking attorney. I highly recommend him, he’s understanding and very respectful no matter what you are going through, he will treat you with the utmost respect as a client can get.

Joseph Abrams:"Thank you Jose Carlos, it was a great pleasure to be able to help you and your family."
