Joe is known for architecting creative global resolutions that maximize subrogation recovery while also resolving the workers’ compensation aspects of the case.  

Joe has published a comprehensive set of educational materials designed to maximize subrogation recovery and lectures extensively for clients and trade associations throughout the United States. He is an active member of the National Association of Subrogation Professionals (NASP), has published articles in NASP’S national trade magazine, The Subrogator, is a member of Minnesota's NASP Chapter Committee, and regularly serves on the faculty for NASP’s national conventions.
