Joe teams with banks throughout the Midwest to provide cost effective, attorney prepared and reviewed documents for SBA and conventional loans of all sizes. He also represents banks in mergers and acquisitions and loan workouts, and assists individuals with estate planning and trust administration. As a seasoned attorney, Joe counsels beneficiaries and trustees as they consider critical personal, legal, and financial decisions, including tax and administration issues.
