  • Marcos M. Garza

    Scott is the "go to" lawyer when it comes to a criminal charge or DUI in the Murrells Inlet greater area. Without question, Scott enjoys a well-deserved national reputation as an outstanding, stop-at-nothing to get a great result for his clients, grade "A" lawyer. Without question or reservation, I would trust Scott to handle a family member or loved one's case in South Carolina and I have routinely referred cases to him, knowing that I will receive a return phone call and thank you later from the client whom I have have referred. You can not go wrong by seeking representation from this nationally known and respected attorney.

  • William C. Head

    Scott Joye and I have been friends for over a decade. I have attended more than a dozen national and state seminars with him, and have watched him interact with and teach other young lawyers about the REAL practice of law. I have referred both criminal and DUI cases to him in his location in SC, because no one enjoys a better reputation for fighting like Hell for his clients than Scott.
