I highly recommend Joel Schechet. Our family hired him to represent our son and found him highly responsive, compassionate, knowledgeable and easy to work with. He is familiar with and works well with the county court representatives. He secured a highly satisfactory conclusion to the case, allowing my son to move forward with his life. He cares about you as an individual, so seek his advice regarding what you can do as a client to help him be able to present the best case for you!


I've had Mr. Schechet on two occasions. Each time were situations where I felt like I had no one to fight for me. One was as a public defender, the other as a laid attorney. In both situations I walked feeling like he had my best interests at heart. My life is so much more peaceful. I can actually start a new life with my family.


Joe is a power house!! I strongly recommend him above all others! He is understanding, compassionate and WILL fight for your rights! No matter what the problem is, Joe CAN and WILL fight for you like family!!


No one wants to be in a situation that requires a criminal defense attorney. However, if you ever are, hire Joel. He is professional, dependable, and he will go to bat for you. He offered to come and meet me at the courthouse during my first panicked call to him, and he had my situation resolved with all charges dropped that same week. He is a straight shooter and he cares about his clients. I hope to never need that kind of representation in the future, but I'd hire him again in a heartbeat


Schechet took on my mother's case that involved multiple felonies. He handled it like it was easy! He is very responsive and easy to talk to. He did a great job and both my mother and I totally recommend him


Joel Schechet handled my case quickly and professionally. I appreciate that he kept me well-informed and how helpful both he and the others at his practice were. I highly recommend Joel


I got recommended to Joel Schechet, and I'm glad I did because he went out of his way to help me and was quick to take action and help me immediately.


Joel was recommended by our attorney in Haywood county and he handled my daughter's legal issue very quickly and professionally. I would recommend him anytime!


Mr. Schechet is a top notch professional however very personal. I highly recommend him. We obtained him for a parole violation review. He went above and beyond for my loved one to regain his freedom. He was always available (every phone call answered immediately or within the hour), as well as always making sure you had clear understanding. I will forever be grateful to him for his job performance.

From the first day he guided us through the winding road of the law while keeping us calm. Our case was dismissed and expunged from the record. Most Highly Recommend!!

Joel is very professional and knowledgeable. He went above and beyond for me! He was very supportive of my decisions and what I wanted to do he didn't push me into doing something I didn't want to do and he was willing to fight for what I wanted! He got me exactly what I wanted and was looking for instead of settling on a plea and I couldn't be happier with my experience with him! I would definitely highly recommend Joel for anyone looking for an honest, dependable, and dedicated lawyer he is was AMAZING I can't say enough nice things about him!

Joel and staff are very competent, helpful and understanding. They put me at ease and were able to help with a complicated situation that could have been much worse and at a very reasonable price. They have my highest recommendation.

Joel is an absolute professional. Right from the get-go he had a strategy and instantly initiated it. Joel was always available and was honest yet comforting throughout the whole process. Within a couple short weeks he was able to diffuse a terrible legal situation; and did it with steadiness and respectability. If you're looking for an attorney that will go the extra mile, Joel is your guy- he's an downright powerhouse.

Joel Schechet is extremely good at what he does, he successfully kept me out of State and then Federal prison.
If your freedom is important to you then Joel is the one you need to hire. He always kept me calm throughout both state and Federal indictments. He was incredibly supportive and very easy to work with. Me and my family are so grateful for Joel, he is truly a godsend.
