Attorney at Law
"The quality of Joel’s work was exceptional. In my eight years of experience as an entrepreneur, I have worked with over a dozen professional lawyers, many of whom are partners at prominent firms in New York City. Joel’s intelligence, diligence, and professionalism stand out among the very best that I have worked with. Joel drafted several documents for us, including an operating agreement, unit buyback agreement, tagalong agreement, and non-disclosure agreement. He also helped us to understand pertinent employment law so that we were able to resolve an outstanding issue. In drafting the above agreements for us, Joel demonstrated that he is an incredibly critical thinker. He ensured not only that the agreements met our very specific needs, but also that all of the agreements worked together in harmony. Even in instances when new challenges arose, Joel was willing and able to tackle them. As a startup establishing its initial operating documents, it was of paramount importance to us that we think through how we wanted to structure all aspects of our company. Joel led us through this process, and we are extremely pleased with the results. Joel also has a knack for “translating” legal language to non-lawyers. In meetings with our executives, Joel was regularly able to explain everything in a concise, clear manner so that everyone in the room understood what the different provisions in the agreements were saying, and what their implications would be. In terms of his demeanor, Joel is extremely friendly, approachable, and responsive. Although I’m sure that Joel had other engagements at the time, he always made us feel as if we were his top priority. He never hesitated to go the extra mile, and he was extremely pleasant to work with."
