Since 2009 dozens of clients have come to Joe with civil disputes of all varieties. Sometimes these have ended in trial, in arbitration or in appellate court, but just as often the dispute is resolved when the parties find a way to settle their differences.
Here too, a comprehensive list of disputes resolved is impossible. But these include litigations on construction, trademark infringement, trespass, breach of contract, fraud, bankruptcy fraud, busines tort and landlord-tenant issues. He has litigated in Los Angeles Superior Court, Orange County Superior Court, San Diego County Superior Court, Santa Cruz County Superior Court, Santa Clara County Superior Court, the California Courts of Appeal and the American Arbitration Association. Federally, he has litigated in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, the United States District Court for the Southern District of California, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California and the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
