About Me

Mr. Jason R. Joyner was born and raised in San Antonio. He graduated from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas with a B.A. in Business. While he was an undergraduate student, Mr. Joyner spent his summers working in San Antonio as an intern for a prominent local attorney. During this time, Mr. Joyner learned first hand the intricacies of criminal defense practice while laying the foundation for his ability to deliver quality legal services for his clients.

After his graduation from Southwestern, Mr. Joyner moved to East Lansing, Michigan, where he attended law school at Michigan State University. While in law school, Jason completed an externship at the Bexar County Courthouse.  During this externship, he worked closely with various San Antonio judges and their staff. This opportunity gave him extensive insight and experience on how criminal cases are handled in the Bexar County justice system.

After earning his Juris Doctor in 2006, Mr. Joyner immediately returned to San Antonio, where he passed the Texas Bar Examination that same year. Mr. Joyner has successfully represented thousands of individuals charged with various criminal offenses.

Mr. Joyner lives in San Antonio and is an avid Spurs fan
