See what clients are saying about Joe Menze

"I retained Joe Menze of Livesay & Myers, P.C. to represent me in a visitation case. The fight for my grandparent rights to see my grandson was extremely important to me and very emotional. The services provided by my attorney Joe Menze and paralegal Tammy Scott were exceptional! They were very responsive to my questions and promptly replied to my emails or returned my calls. Due to their diligence and dedication to my case, I now have a visitation schedule filed with the courts and regularly see my grandson to include overnight visits. They brought joy back into my life!" - Melannie
