About Us

Joe Markell

Joseph M. Markell

Attorney at Law

After exploring a few different areas of law after my bar admission, I discovered that assisting those planning for their future is what I was most passionate about. My style of advocating for my clients includes creating a collaborative and involved legal process. Some lawyers act as a "boss" with their clients, which can result in a slower, more tedious process. When you work with me, I will walk you through the process step by step, so that you can feel comfortable at every phase. Reach out today so we can prepare for your future.
