"Joel Orenstein provided me with exemplary legal advice and representation for two serious criminal offences. Thanks to Joel, the process went completely in my favour, with the police removing all charges, and he put my mind at ease from day one and throughout the entire process. Thank you Joel ! You're an amazing lawyer and legend for consummate professionalism and patience in the court processes that would have otherwise been extremely stressful and costly."
