He has participated in continuing legal education courses and seminars in these areas of the law for more than 30 years. Additionally, he has participated in similar activities on a national level offered around the country by various state bar associations and the National College for DUI Defense.

Joel graduated from the University of Michigan with a bachelor's degree in history. He received his law degree from the University of Michigan Law School, and was subsequently admitted to the State Bar of Michigan. He is licensed to practice in Michigan state court, as well as the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan and the U.S. Court of Appeals 6th Circuit Court.
