If he wasn’t a lawyer, he would be a chef.
Joseph graduated from SUNY Albany Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2004, a degree that he uses every day in the emotionally complex world of family law. He graduated Quinnipiac University School of Law in 2007, with a concentration in Family Law. Joseph continues to support his alma mater and community by volunteering his time and legal expertise in the annual Public Interest Law Project, as well as serving as a guest judge at the Alternative Dispute Resolution Competition.
In addition to family law, Joseph is an experienced practitioner in the following areas:
Mediation/ADR, Real Estate, Criminal Law, Probate and Trusts & Estates.
Joseph has served as co-chair of the Family Law Committee of the New Haven County Bar Association and currently serves as co-chair of the Solo/Small Firms Committee. This committee provides a forum for solo and small business members to share and/or pool information relating to law practice management, marketing opportunities and the business of law.
Joseph is also a certified Parenting Coordinator.
Prior to joining Happy Even After Family Law, Joseph was a partner at Kolb & DiSilvestro.
When he isn’t in the courtroom, Joseph, who is half-Italian and half-Cuban, can be found in the kitchen whipping up gourmet meals for his son and wife from recipes he finds online or that have been handed down for generations. If he isn’t in the kitchen, Joseph can often be found playing with, or more likely taking pictures of his pup, Sir Winston Churchill.
Happy is not just reserved for the lucky ones.
