Joel began his career as an attorney-advisor at the General Accounting Office drafting decisions in government procurement law. Several decisions were published and a few broke new ground in procurement law.  After two and a half years it was time to move on.  Joel moved to the Pentagon where he accepted a position in the Air Force General Counsel’s office.  Joel was legal counsel in connection with major procurement projects such as the space shuttle, the F-16 and other high visibility programs. But again after 2 years it was time to move on.

That was when Joel met his mentor Marvin Sadur. Joel joined Sadur & Pelland (later Sadur Pelland & Rubinstein) in 1977 and quickly learned construction law.  Joel’s practice specialized in small business and subcontractor construction matters. SP&R merged with Bell Boyd and Lloyd where Joel served on the firm’s Executive Committee for a number of years as well as serving as the Managing Partner of BBL’s Washington office.

It was in 1977 that Joel became intertwined with ASA Metro Washington (formerly DCMSA).

Over the past 37 years Joel has been a frequent speaker at ASA functions, a moderator on call for panel discussions and a prolific contributor of construction related articles. In 1993 Joel accepted a one year contract to serve as ASA”s general counsel.  He learned that you need to read all of the fine print as 1 year as counsel has turned into 20, Joel  resigned  as ASA’’s counsel this past September receiving 3 Subby’s along the way.  Joel retired from the private practice of law September 14th this past year. After 2 weeks of retirement Joel accepted the position of General Counsel at Long Fence Company where he is once again involved in the construction industry only this time as the contractor.  Joel is back on the board and now he has voting rights!!

I was born into construction subcontractor associations.  My Father worked for the National Electrical Contactors’ Association (NECA) and my Mother worked for him.  The NECA Office was in our back yard in Charlotte, NC so it was a major part of my life growing up.  After college and a stint as a teacher, I became the Assistant Manager of NECA in the Carolinas.  At that time, my Mother was the first Executive Director of ASA of the Carolinas.  When she retired I took over her position until I moved to the Washington area to work for ASA National.  I left ASA to run associations for electrical contractors (Independent Electrical Contractors) and Plumbing, Heating, Cooling Contractors (Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors – National Association).  Now I am back with ASAMW and excited to be working for the best of the best in the construction industry.  I want to hear from you, so give me a call and let’s get together to discuss how to make the construction industry in the DC Metro area one that allows you to sleep like a baby.
