Be passionate. It is no secret that there are many unhappy lawyers in this world, but Joe isn't one of them. Joe's professional happiness is the product of his great luck in having chosen an area of practice that is endlessly challenging and, therefore, interesting. Utility practice often involves "big questions" concerning fairness between classes of customers and difficult issues of engineering and economics. Joe brings a passion to his practice that is born of being absolutely invested in his clients' interests. He's always been fascinated by big machines, so working in and around power plants is a thrill for him. This "ground-up" view of his clients' businesses allows him to bring practical, results-oriented advice to bear on legal and business challenges.
