In addition to assisting with financial problems, Joe has: handled negotiations to split up farm businesses; sold farming operations on a going concern basis; represented farmers before the ASCS dealing with issues involving conversion of wetlands; litigated involving the sale of sows infected with pseudorabies; and appealed adverse rulings by ASCS regarding qualification for payment limitations by family farm units.
