“Joanne’s representation was tenacious and effective, delivering much-needed funds back to our County and the State of New York.  Joanne demonstrated a true mastery of the law involved and worked beautifully with our public employees to minimize the burdens typically associated with litigation.” – Carol Stevens, Greene County Attorney

“Joanne successfully represented over 40 New York County governments in multiple complex litigation cases against the nation’s largest prescription drug companies.  While prior results do not guarantee similar outcomes, I can highly recommend Joanne.  Her work ethic, research and diligence is evident in her advocacy.”  – Stephen J. Acquario, Executive Director, New York State Association of Counties

“As an in-house attorney in a variety of different public law settings, I have had a lot of interaction with litigation counsel.  Joanne stands above the rest!  She is, of course, tireless in the pursuit of the client's goals.  But what really makes her stand out are her pragmatic but innovative approaches.”  – Erik Dahler, Former General Counsel, San Antonio Fire and Police Pension Fund
