Bill M.


Joe Maternowski was referred to me to represent our company in an Administrative Penalty Order. I quickly learned how familiar Joe was with the APO process and how he would best represent us. Ultimately we received a favorable decision from the administrative law judge to have our APO dismissed. Joe did an extraordinary job representing us and helping us to navigate our way through a long and difficult process. Many thanks go out to Joe and his staff of Hessian & McKasy, P.A.



Joe Maternowski was able to reduce the proposed EPA fines by almost 98% with his professional research, hard work, attention to detail and thoroughness. We could not have done it without the aid of his sound legal advice. I cannot imagine a kinder, more able attorney. He bridged the gap between Minneapolis and Kansas with no communication issues.



Joe provided legal support in the company's conduct of environmental compliance reviews, addressing environmental compliance issues and providing insight in proactively developing and implementing environmental compliance strategies. Joe is extremely knowledgable about environmental laws and regulations and about how to effectively work with environmental regulatory agencies in addressing identified needs and issues.



Joe and his colleagues represented me in an employment law case. They were quick to review all the materials, make an assessment, discuss my options with me and make their recommendations. Joe and his colleagues listened to my concerns with great interest and helped me see what the most effective strategy might be. There was definitely give and take and I really appreciated that. At the end of our discussions, we reached a mutually agreeable solution. Joe was also very fair and reasonable in his billing. I felt I got my money's worth. I have also consulted Joe on other issues informally over the years. He is extremely approachable, knowledgeable and reasonable in his analysis of issues. I would highly recommend him and his firm to anyone.



Joe represented me against the PCA. We won the claim and counter-claim against the PCA of $111,500. I'm very happy with his services and would highly recommend him to anyone.
