“JOE FLEES WAS ORIGINALLY ASSIGNED AT MY MILITARY DEFENSE LAWYER WHEN I WAS FACING SERIOUS CHARGES FROM THE ARMY AFTER BEING CLEARED BY LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT IN 2012. UNFORTUNATELY, HE TRANSITIONED TO CIVILIAN LAW MIDWAY THROUGH MY CASE. HE CONTINUED TO BE A PASSIONATE ADVOCATE AND CONFIDANT WHILE SETTING REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS FOR THE DURATION OF OUR RELATIONSHIP. ULTIMATELY, I WAS CLEARED OF ALL SEXUALLY ASSAULT ALLEGATIONS BUT FOUND GUILTY OF CONSENSUAL SODOMY (A CRIME NOT RECOGNIZED BY ANY JURISDICTION BUT THE MILITARY AT THE TIME). I WAS SENTENCED TO CONFINEMENT FOR 30 DAYS AND AN OTHER THAN HONORABLE DISCHARGE. I FELT LIKE MY LIFE WAS COMPLETELY RUINED AS I LOST A LOT OF OPPORTUNITIES, FRIENDS AND CONFIDENCE. SHORTLY AFTER MY CONVICTION, CONSENSUAL SODOMY WAS FINALLY COMPLETELY ABOLISHED BY THE MILITARY. CONSEQUENTLY, I SPENT THE NEXT SEVERAL YEARS APPEALING MY CASE BUT THEY FELL ON DEAF EARS DESPITE THE RECENT CHANGE IN LAW. FINALLY, WITH MY LAST SHOT AT REDEMPTION, I TURNED TO JOE WHO KNEW MY CASE AS GOOD AS ANYONE. HE WORKED EXTENSIVELY TO PUT TOGETHER A STRONG PACKET AND CASE FOR SUBMISSION TO THE ARMY REVIEW BOARD. WE WAITED ALMOST 3 YEARS FOR A RESPONSE BUT JOE CONSISTENTLY FOLLOWED UP. WITH THE ODDS AGAINST ME AND NOTHING BUT YEARS OF DESPAIR AND PAIN, JOE WAS ABLE TO SECURE AN EXTRAORDINARY OUTCOME FOR ME IN THE FORM OF FULL-RELIEF OF THE CONVICTION AND RESTORATION OF MY HONORABLE DISCHARGE! BECAUSE OF JOE, I RECEIVED THE VINDICATION I SOUGHT FOR ALMOST 7 YEARS AND CAN NOW BE PROUD OF MY MILITARY SERVICE AND RELEASED FROM THE RESENTMENT AND BITTERNESS OF THE LAST 7 YEARS. I AM GRATEFUL THAT JOE WORKED SO TIRELESSLY TO CHANGE MY LIFE. NO MATTER HOW COMPLICATED AND STRESSFUL YOUR SITUATION, JOE DOESN’T JUST GIVE LIP-SERVICE, HE WILL MAKE IT HIS PERSONAL MISSION TO SECURE THE BEST OUTCOME FOR YOU! THANK YOU JOE FOR HELPING AFFECT SUCH A POSITIVE CHANGE IN MY LIFE!”


“MY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS LAW FIRM HAS BEEN OVER THE TOP. MATTHEW RADEFELD REPRESENTED ME IN A VERY PROFESSIONAL MANNER AND I COULD NOT BE MORE PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS.

“TO DAN, MATT & EVERYONE ELSE WHO HELPED, WORDS CANNOT EVEN BEGIN TO EXPRESS HOW GRATEFUL I AM FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR MY DAD!

“WE ARE SO HAPPY WE CHOSE THIS LAW FIRM — OUR 17-YEAR-OLD GOT INTO SOME TROUBLE AND BEING OUT OF STATE WE HAD TO GET AN ATTORNEY. WE CAME ACROSS THIS LAW FIRM AND MADE A GREAT CHOICE TO HIRE THEM. WE ONLY HAD TO GO ONE TIME (OUR CHOICE) TO VISIT AND THEY TOOK CARE OF EVERYTHING! MADE OUR LIFE EASY. THANK YOU JOSEPH FLEES.”

“MATTHEW RADEFELD IS NOT ONLY AN AMAZING ATTORNEY BUT A KIND AND ATTENTIVE PERSON TO HIS CLIENTS. HE IS KEENLY AWARE OF THE LAW AND MAKES IT HIS MISSION TO BE THE MOST PREPARED PERSON IN THE COURTROOM. HE WILL MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS NOTHING THAT COMES UP IN COURT THAT HE IS NOT READY FOR AND ABLE TO HANDLE. WHEN HIRED, HIS CLIENTS ARE HIS TOP PRIORITY AND WILL ALWAYS BE AVAILABLE. LIKE SOME OTHER LARGE WELL-PUBLICIZED ST. LOUIS DEFENSE FIRMS, YOU WILL NOT BE PASSED OFF TO THE NEWEST LAW CLERK AND HE WILL NOT STRONG ARM YOU INTO A PLEA DEAL JUST TO GET THE EASY MONEY. HE BELIEVED IN MY INNOCENCE AND FOUGHT WITH ME AT TRIAL ALL THE WAY TO A LESS THAN TWO HOUR NOT GUILTY VERDICT. BAR NONE THIS IS THE BEST DEFENSE FIRM!!”

– R.S.


“IT WAS A CASE HE DIDN’T HAVE TO TAKE, BUT HE TURNED THINGS AROUND. WAS POSITIVE, TRUTHFUL AND SUPPORTIVE. ANSWERED ALL MY QUESTIONS. NO RUN AROUND. GREATEST THING ABOUT JOE, HE CARES FOR HIS CLIENTS.”

– KERA


“I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND MR. JUENGEL AS A DEFENSE ATTORNEY. I THINK MY PARTICULAR CASE WAS A LITTLE LESS “INVOLVED” THAN THE NORMAL CASES HE AND HIS OFFICE HANDLES; YET HE STILL TOOK THE TIME TO HANDLE MY CASE IN A HIGHLY PROFESSIONAL MANNER. I WAS ALWAYS KEPT WELL-INFORMED AND QUITE FRANKLY HE OBTAINED A BETTER RESOLUTION THAN I EXPECTED. AND THE PROFESSIONALISM EXTENDS TO THE OTHER ATTORNEYS AND STAFF IN HIS OFFICE AS WELL WHICH WAS GREATLY APPRECIATED.”

– LAWRENCE


“JOE IS AN AMAZING LAWYER, NOT ONLY BECAUSE OF HIS HARD WORK BUT BECAUSE HE IS GENUINE AND TRULY CARES ABOUT HIS CLIENTS. HE ANSWERED ALL OF MY QUESTIONS, AND I KNEW HE TRULY CARED ABOUT MY CASE AND ME AS AN INDIVIDUAL. HE MAKES SURE THAT YOU ARE AWARE OF EVERY THING THAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR CASE AND ENSURES THAT ALL OF THE GOOD THAT YOU HAVE DONE IS SEEN BY THE PROSECUTOR. FROM DAY ONE, I KNEW THAT JOE WAS THOUGHTFUL, DEDICATED AND A CARING LAWYER AND HUMAN BEING. I HAVE NEVER MET A LAWYER AS TRUSTWORTHY AS JOE FLEES.”

– THALIA


“JOE IS A WONDERFUL ATTORNEY WHO IS SENSITIVE TO YOUR NEEDS. I FELT LIKE I WAS HIS ONLY CLIENT AND HE NEVER STEERED ME WRONG. HE HAS SUCH A POSITIVE ENERGY. JOE IS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT THE LAW AND HE WAS ABLE TO EXPUNGE TWO CASES FROM MY RECORD.”

– RONDA


“JOE IS AN ABSOLUTELY AMAZING PERSON AND LAWYER. AFTER A NEGATIVE EXPERIENCE WITH A WELL-KNOWN DEFENSE FIRM IN ST. LOUIS, I WAS FORCED TO SWITCH LEGAL TEAMS. FROM THE MOMENT I MET JOE I KNEW THAT HE WAS LIKE NONE OTHER. HE WAS DEDICATED AND ATTENTIVE TO NOT ONLY CLIENTS THAT HIRED HIM, BUT ALSO TO ME BEFORE I HAD EVEN HIRED HIM. THAT DID NOT CHANGE THE ENTIRE TRIAL. HE OR SOMEONE ON THE LEGAL TEAM WAS ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO ME. WHEN THE OTHER FIRM JUST WANTED THE QUICK MONEY AND TO TAKE A DEAL, JOE BELIEVED IN ME AND THE FACTS OF THE CASE AND WAS READY FOR TRIAL. JOE DOES NOT JUST CARE ABOUT THE QUICK BUCK. HE CARES ABOUT JUSTICE AND FIGHTING FOR HIS CLIENTS. HE WAS BEYOND PREPARED FOR TRIAL AND AFTER TWO YEARS OF WAITING TO PROVE MY INNOCENCE, THE JURY GAVE A NOT GUILTY VERDICT IN LESS THAN TWO HOURS. YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER FIRM ANYWHERE.”
