Joel Mann is an attorney I will always recommend! My husband and I worked with Mr. Mann (and his assistant, Maria) for around 2 years. Their office is like a well-oiled machine. We were always treated with dignity and respect, but my biggest praise is for their supreme level of communication. Maria and Joel communicate seamlessly. I talked with Maria quite a bit, and every message was correctly communicated for Joel to address when he was out of court. Likewise, every conversation we had with Mr. Mann involved him being honest and open with us about what was going on in our case. He let us know what choices we had and explored each of those choices with us. We knew what was required of us for each option, and he didn't shy away from asking us pivotal questions so that we could be confident in our decisions. Mr. Mann is not an arrogant man, but he is an extremely talented attorney, and his confidence made us feel like we were standing on a rock instead of shifting sands.
Beware this guy does not have your best interest in mind. He was extremely rude to me AND my mother. Only after we paid him of course. I had only been 18 for 2 months when I hired him and he treated me like a criminal and talked very condescending to me. He would get upset if I didn’t agree with the conditions of the deal he was getting me , when I was in fact innocent and didn’t believe I should take any deal. I vividly remember him raising his voice at me telling me what a “sweet deal” it is and that I’d be dumb not to take it. Then I find out later, my friend who was involved in the case and had the EXACT same charges as me, got an even better “Sweet Deal” with a court appointed attorney. I am 30 now and can’t ever even imagine talking in such a degrading way to an 18 year old with no prior criminal history. Hire someone else.
It’s not enough words I can use to express my gratitude for Mr.Mann one simple word would “BLESSING” I retained Joel to handle my case which was very serious mr.mann was very transparent through the whole process never leading me to believe anything but assuring me he would do the best he that he could and he did just that! I am a two time felon and was on parole when I was caught with a firearm Joel worked over time and got me the best deal a person in my situation could ever ask for ! So here I am today a person while on parole and caught with a firearm writing this review because Mr.Mann made sure I didn’t see the inside of a jail cell again !! I walked out of the court room with low level probation I can’t say thank you enough!!
My mistake on the previous review I posted. Maria the par legal for Mr Mann was out of the office and wasn't available to return my call. She called me back a few minutes ago and explained her absence and more importantly gave me an attorney's name and number that handles my particular federal issues. Job well done and I must say she was most apologetic and very helpful.
A Good Attorney, is hard to find, in today's world. However, being out of town, and accused of a Hit and run. Mr. Mann, was able to provide Effective Counsel, and I was never charged. Thank you, Leo
