    Joe is one of the very few lawyers I have encountered who truly has it all. He is smart, dedicated and one of the most passionate advocates (and people) I know. He is an outstanding counsellor who listens and understands how to communicate with judges, adversaries and juries alike. He is honorable and loyal. Too bad there aren't more lawyers like Joe Tacopina.

    Joseph Tacopina is one of the finest lawyers I know. I've witnessed his experience, skill and expertise firsthand, having previously worked on a case with him. His command of the facts was uncanny and he had an encyclopedic knowledge of the relevant statutes and case law. And, his skill as an advocate in the courtroom is unparalleled. I have always known him to be exceptionally ethical and he is a credit to the bar.
