  • I have had the privilege and pleasure of working with Joe Fagundes on District matters for the last several years. Joe always provides excellent advice and guidance on the matters he works on for the District, and has delivered consistently successful results. Joe is a very seasoned and well respected attorney, and I am glad he is part of our District’s legal team. I would recommend Joe’s services to others without hesitation.

  • I’ve had the privilege of working with Malm, Fagundes LLC representing my employer for more than 20 years. Joe Fagundes in particular has repeatedly demonstrated what matters most: results. His candid demeanor, his attentiveness to his clients, his ability to truly listen and work with a variety of staff at all levels, and his understanding of our particular needs make experiencing success that much better!

  • Opening a franchise was a new experience for me, my past life was all technology based companies in Silicon Valley working for large Fortune 500 companies. This was different, it was now my money to spend or protect. All of the nuances and permit requirements was also new to me. I received what they call an FDD from Nothing Bundt Cakes corporate office, and it was 255 pages of legal “mumbo jumbo”. I certainly understood most of it because I negotiated a lot of contracts in my past, again the difference is it is now my money. A friend of mine had referred me to Joe, so that’s who I called. Joe was awesome, professional, and candid, and I like candid. In the end, Joe read the FDD, gave me his opinion and possible areas of concern(which I couldn’t do anything about anyway), filed all of the appropriate permits, business license documents, and most importantly set up our LLC. Needless to say, Joe launched our business and we have had incredible success, and it all started with him guiding us through each step.

  • I couldn’t be more pleased with the excellent advice and guidance Joseph Fagundes was able to provide Financial Center as we sought out and purchased a property for our most recent branch. We always turn to him for assistance with all of our large real estate transactions and will continue to do so in the future. When it comes to such a large purchase, it’s important that we do right by our cooperative by having a top-rate professional help navigate us through the process, and Joseph is exactly that. He is a true partner and expert when it comes to real estate law.

  • Joe did a terrific job representing my family with not one but two eminent domain cases involving our ranch. His reputation regarding eminent domain is well known in San Joaquin County. It makes a difference when you walk into a conference room to negotiate, and they see Joe by your side. He shows patience educating his client about the condemnation process. We had two very successful outcomes. I also hear he is a fairly decent baseball coach.
