I have known Attorney Joe Byrd professionally and personally for over 20 years. He is an excellent attorney, and he has an outstanding reputation in this community and beyond. He deserves the highest accolades you are able to give any attorney with regard to all phases of the profession. I wish I was one-half the attorney he is and has always been.
