His meticulous research and persuasive arguments have convinced judges to issue favorable rulings that others in our group have tried and failed to achieve. His work helps expose nonsense such as the maternal forces argument and helps us all fight for the injured children we represent. Thank you Joe.

I am sure I speak for all of us when I say thank you for allowing us to ride on the coat tails of your fine work."
