Comment by AJS about Attorney Fund:   ” I want to thank you for the greatest argument you did on my behalf.”


A review by A.S. said this about Attorney Fund –  “I will never be able to put in words how grateful I am for you on behalf of J., our kids and myself.  The feeling I received yesterday was the purest form of love and gratefulness. You exceeded expectations on everything and because of you my kids are able to have there dad home. That’s something I will never be able to put in words of how grateful I am and how much this means to my family. From all of us, you are so appreciated and so loved. Through this whole experience I’m very grateful to God that you represented J. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”


A review by Robin F. said this about Attorney Fund – “Joan Fund is a very experienced and dedicated Attorney with the highest level of expertise.  She knows the law and knows it well.  Attorney Fund has an impeccable work ethic that is second to none.  She is always professional, well organized and a woman of integrity.  She will always be there for you, always in communication, always explaining the process along the way no matter how complicated things get. Attorney Fund stood beside my family for close to three years in a criminal trial.  Meticulously strategizing a defense. When you are trying to survive the justice system with over zealous prosecutors and opportunistic informants, you need an Attorney that is willing to give 110%. Joan Fund is that attorney.”
