  • Raymond Bell Walker

    When it comes to complex commercial litigation and tiral work, Jeff Joyce is simply one of the best in the business. He and his team are smart, practical and effective. As outside general counsel, our firm works closely with Jeff and his team on high stakes litigation for our clients. I highly recommend Jeff and Joyce, McFarland + McFarland LLP for anyone who needs excellent litigation counsel and trial results.

  • John Hatchett McFarland

    Jeff Joyce is among the finest trial lawyers in the state. He has a keen legal mind, a tireless work ethic, and plain horse sense. His slightly rural manner and nasal twang belie a sophisticated legal mind that is well-used to grappling with the most complicated legal issues. This is the upper echelon of lawyer, particularly well-suited for complex and high stakes commercial litigation.
