In addition, Joel represents people in Buffalo and Western New York on an individual basis when they must deal with insurance companies following an injury or disability. Often, through no fault of their own, people are injured in work related accidents, collisions, etc. When this happens, and they are unable to work they often quickly become at risk of being evicted from their apartment, or losing their home, or unable to take care of their families.
