"Joe has phenomenal insight, but is also eminently practical. When it comes to bankruptcy, insolvency and/or collection issues, including deal structuring, there is none better. The more difficult and challenging the problem, the more Joe shines."

"Joe is an exceptional attorney who brings both legal expertise and pragmatic insights to complex matters. In addition to his legal and technical knowledge, Joe has provided business and strategic perspectives that have helped to shape more effective solutions and corporate strategies. His mastery of bankruptcy law is complemented by the ability to develop and evaluate options and clearly communicate the essence of the factual, legal and business issues to corporate executives. Joe defines professionalism and is a true gentleman. I would highly recommend Joe and his entire team at Kennedy Covington."
