I chose Stead & Associates to represent me with 6 lawsuits, 2 of them with a major US bank. Joseph and his team have been amazing at keeping me in the loop and doing what they promised to do. My lawsuits are business litigation suits involving fraud among many other issues. I highly recommend the Stead group if you’re looking for a legal team to help you fight for what’s right and get you the justice you deserve. If you’re a business owner like myself choosing the Stead law team is the best decision you can make. If you would like to hear the details of my cases to determine if you are facing similar challenges, I’d be happy to share more information. You can find me online by searching my first and last name Jason Valasek.

Joseph was helped me with a review of my prenuptial agreement. From the initial call, Joseph was kind, professional and thorough. His review reflected a level of diligence that left me impressed. We had a tight turn around before our elopement and Joseph was consistently communicative and prompt to ensure the review and signature was in place. I would highly recommend for prenuptial reviews or any contract/estate reviews!

These guys are crooks and very sleazy. I reached out to them to help my elderly uncle, who is in a nursing home, to help him create a trust as he has terminal cancer. My initial conversation was with Doug Harding who, after the fact, I find out is not an attorney nor has any competency in estate planning or other legal matters. I specifically told Doug that I wanted an attorney to visit with my uncle and help him determine what he wanted to do with his estate in his trust. Then I wanted to have the attorney visit him to execute it as he explains everything that he is implementing and signing. The first red flag was instead of meeting with my uncle to sign an engagement letter, they simply sent it to me and wanted me to sign his name, which I didn’t. This is fraud. The second red flag was they sent me a standard questionnaire on how the assets were to be distributed. I refused to fill this out and told them that I didn’t want anything to do with responding to these questions as it not my role to determine these things. Then Doug calls my uncle about 4 times on the phone totaling 20 minutes of conversation (I have phone records proving this), the longest one was 13 minutes. From this short time with no face to face interaction, determined that he wanted everything to go to me. This was not what he wanted and was completely fabricated, but was much easier than actually doing any work. Then they sent me the forms from a template and my uncles name filled in and told me to have a notary execute them. And said their obligation was complete. My uncle has very bad eyesight and could not possible read all these documents which is why I wanted an attorney to be there with him in person to review before executing them. All in all, I paid $3,000 for a person who had no legal expertise to spend 20min on the phone to get information to create a trust, then refused to refund my $ when I highlighted their lack of legitimate work and things that were not done that were promised. THE ENGAGEMENT LETTER WAS NEVER SIGNED!!! MY UNCLE HAD ZERO INTERACTION WITH AN ATTORNEY AND NO IN PERSON MEETING WITH ANYBODY. Joseph Stead is a fraud
