Client Testimonials
  • He represented me in two different cases and was impressive to say the least. Always a phone call or text message away. Confident and aggressive when he needed to be. Calming and thorough when meeting with me. Attentive to detail. Both of my cases ended in dismissals thanks to the help of Attorney Serpa...
  • Joe Serpa helped my family member get out of some serious charges. I would recommend him to anyone that needs a lawyer. Joe always made sure that we were updated on the case, that we knew exactly what the next step was, and set a good plan of defense...
  • I was falsely accused of a horrific crime. There were times I didn’t think I’d make it through. Attorney Serpa was a steady supporter and got me through to a not guilty. He never ignored my case, my constant emails or my calls. I will never forget what he did for me...
