ABOUT THE FIRM

Stacey and Joey have unique and complimentary skillsets which inspired them to open Vucko Law LLP together in 2019 to better serve their clients’ needs. They take a creative approach to problem-solving with the shared goal of finding cost-effective, practical legal solutions.


Joey has over seven years of in-house legal experience and a diverse background in contractual matters, general legal advising and litigation.

From there he worked as an in-house lawyer for a major public relations and marketing consultancy firm. Starting in 2014 and continuing until joining Vucko Law LLP, Joey worked as Corporate Counsel for a worldwide leader in sports performance nutritional foods and supplements.
