Joseph is in the Finance & Creditors’ Rights group, where his practice includes residential mortgage collections and related bankruptcy work.

He came to Barley Snyder from a Philadelphia-based, high-volume, mortgage default servicing firm representing national banks and mortgage servicers in a variety of bankruptcy matters. Joe moved to the Harrisburg area to open a satellite office for his former firm, expanding his practice to include residential mortgage foreclosures, court-mandated foreclosure diversion programs and bank-owned real estate closings. In this expanded role, he handled contested foreclosure and ejectment proceedings, as well as non-jury trials throughout the state. Given his work in the default servicing industry, Joseph was tapped to assist with the drafting and implementation of foreclosure diversion programs for Lycoming and Cumberland counties, as well as the Middle District of Pennsylvania Bankruptcy court program. He is a past president of the Middle District Bankruptcy Bar Association.

Over the course of his years working on behalf of national banks and mortgage servicers, Joseph has developed an understanding of how to best to meet the timelines of his institutional clients, while also working toward smart resolutions of matters.
