Joe attended Fordham University - Rose Hill Campus, and graduated with a B.A. degree in political science. He then attended Fordham University School of Law, and graduated with a Juris Doctor degree. He was a practicing attorney and a municipal court judge.
Practicing law certainly had wonderful moments, but to call it "utter euphoria"--well, that was a stretch. So, in 2010, Joe decided that it was time to reward himself for his innate goodness, generosity, love of all living things, and, of course, humility. Together with his son, Anthony (also a paragon of virtue), he formed Pandolfi Communications.
The company currently publishes a series of scintillating, joy-producing, and chuckle-filled children's books, entitled "The Adventures of Mophie and Picholas ", written by Joe and his son.
Joe was also a 2015 Jim Martin Memorial Mystery Writers award recipient for his flash fiction piece, "Psychology for Dummies".
He also served as a member of the Board of Trustees of Project Literacy of Greater Bergen County (a non-profit organization) for fifteen years, and was accorded a Special Recognition in Literacy Award from that organization.
