Joel’s principal areas of practice are in litigation and dispute resolution. He presently acts for various statutory boards in prosecutorial work, and for several corporations in asset recovery. He has previously assisted to advise and act for estates in Grants of Probate and Letters of Administration, and for a criminal law matter involving aggravated cheating.

He also spent a year abroad doing humanitarian work, feeding the less privileged physically and spiritually. Aesthetically, Joel delights in photography and poetry, and has dabbled in singing and songwriting.
