Joseph Weidhaas

Springfield Partner

Email Attorney

In fourth grade, Joe’s teacher signed his yearbook with a prophetic note. “See you after you pass the bar,” she wrote.

Joe is an avid reader, and loves to cook, kayak, and watch Cardinals baseball. He is also extremely competitive, and does not like to lose which makes law a perfect fit fir him. He takes comfort and pride in knowing he is making a positive difference in the lives of people who need help. “Helping people is rewarding, and with my skill set, helping injured people through aggressively litigating cases is how I can help people the most.” Joe takes very seriously the trust clients place in him and the privilege of letting Johnson, Vorhees & Martucci represent them and present their case in front of a jury.

“Not all lawyers are the same. We care and approach each case very aggressively. We are not afraid of a fight.”
