Prior to joining his father to form Piucci Law, Joe was a Public Defender and criminal defense attorney for Multnomah Defenders, Inc. in Portland. In his practice there he personally represented hundreds of individuals in trials and hearings. He has handled a wide range of cases from arraignment to resolution, including many jury trials, bench trials, and motions to suppress. He has spent thousands of hours in court.
This intensive trial experience has instilled a great amount of ability and confidence that Joe puts to work daily. He understands what moves a jury and what motivates a judge to rule in his clients’ favor. He has already established an excellent reputation among local judges and other lawyers. He communicates well, and not just in English. He is also fluent in Spanish.
In short, Joe is on a fast-rising track to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a successful trial attorney.
In his own words: “I truly enjoy building relationships with clients and serving as their advocate. It’s deeply fulfilling to take on greedy insurance companies and corporate entities and prevent them from taking advantage of injured or marginalized people. It’s important to make companies pay when someone has been hurt – not just to cover pain and suffering but also to make them change their actions that led to the harm.”
Joe was born and raised in Portland. He attended Grant High School where he was a member of the Mock Trial Team, as well as a member of the Constitution Team that earned a trip to the national finals in Washington, DC.
He has an appreciation for the arts and a talent for drawing and painting. A few of his art pieces are on display in the Piucci Law office. Outside the office, Joe enjoys making music, cooking, skiing, fishing, and hiking. He is curious by nature and likes to get into it. Together, he and his father make a formidable team. Like father, like son.
