Happy Client
Ms. Robinson handled my case, and my anxiety, VERY well. I was super anxious having to file bankruptcy. She definitely put my mind at ease, provided me legal advice and recommendations where needed. If you're worried about the entire process, Ms. Robinson is one to go to. She will walk you through the process and you don't feel judged. I was grateful to have her as my attorney.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Attorney Robinson was a god send and helped me get my life back on track. I had worked with two previous attorneys and did not get the support that I needed. She is honest, diligent, thorough and puts her clients first. I highly recommend her and would hire her again.

Modification/ Bankruptcy
The power in the name "Joy" is a true representation of attorney Joy Robinson. God created her for a special reason not only to represent others in fighting for survival but to bring "joy" to the lives of hard working individuals who have faced unexpected and trying times. Ms. Joy as she is called is a people-person and truly represents her client with unspeakable empathy, love and understanding. The grace of God lead us to her, when I had nowhere else to go. My day started out with mere frustration when my former lawyer called and told me that my house was back in foreclosure due to bankruptcy failure. I did not know what to do or how to think, I was overwhelmed, frustrated and confused but the Lord lead me in the right direction. I started to research the best lawyers in my area and of course attorney Joy Robinson was on the list, I did not hesitate to call the number and as soon as the phone rang Ms. Joy answered. She was empathetic, patient and willing to assist me in any way possible; I was astonished how much she took me on as her own child. To make it short Ms. Joy did everything in her power to get our house modified, her kindness was unspeakable. God has proven that there are still individuals that care in this world and through His power He uses them to bring light in the darkest hour of our lives. Although we have a few things left to solve, my husband and I are grateful for the love and support from Ms. Joy and her paralegal. I always remember your words Ms. Joy "I love to see young people try and I will do whatever I can to help you". From the bottom of my heart you have done all that you can, I love you for being true to yourself, your clients and your profession. We hope to see you soon, God Bless. "It’s not done till God says it’s done" and I believe that. May He continue to bless your practice, yourself and all the people that surround you. The Powell's

Compassionate & competent
I have power of attorney for a family member. When it became clear that she needed to file for bankruptcy, I turned to Joy. She was efficient and supportive through the entire process, which went without a hick-up. Thank you Joy!

Experienced, Knowledgeable and Passionate Lawyer
I am so blessed to have found Attorney Joy Robinson (Ms. Joy, as I call her). I was going through some major financial difficulties - struggling to keep apace, facing medical issues and depression. I reluctantly decided to file for bankruptcy and did a search for an attorney in my area. I will be honest, I selected Ms. Joy because my life at the time was not a JOY! God directed me to her and she saved me. Her direct, yet courteous and passionate counsel, guided me through my struggles. She eased my fears, anxiety and shame. She consistently kept me in the loop of what was going on with my case, what to expect and when I made STUPID mistakes, she reminded me of why I hired her. More importantly, whenever I needed her, she was there. She answered all of my questions and remained by my side. I'd highly recommend Ms. Joy -- she knows her stuff and is a recognized, respected attorney in the courts --- that is important as well. Thank you Ms. Joy. I appreciate what you did for me the day I walked in your office and the restart to my future.

Joy Robinson is a compassionate and knowledgeable attorney.
Joy was compassionate and easy to talk to about my situation. She provided logical and sound advice and guided me through the process step-by-step. Whatever I did not understand, she took the time to clearly explain it to me with dignity and respect.

Review of Joy Robinson
Joy Robinson is a very knowledgeable and experienced attorney and, as a result, she made the legal process much easier to understand. Throughout the process, it was evident that she was concerned about my unique situation and well being. My situation is that I'm going through both a foreclosure and bankruptcy at the same time and she has been very helpful in explaining to me how both of those processes would impact each other. As a result of my situation, I had a lot of questions and she was very patient in addressing them. In addition, she is very personable and friendly and that, of course, made it easy to communicate with her. In summary, working with Ms. Robinson has been a very positive experience and I highly recommend her.

She is powerful!
Joy is knowledgeable, skillful and determined. Even my opponents compliment her efforts. I personally hired her to do 2 Chapt 13 bankruptcies and 5 loan modifications. Both of us are more than happy with the results. I refer her to as many friends, clients and acquaintances as I can. Not many professionals today have the ethics Joy brings to her work. She obviously answers to a higher power. I unconditionally recommend her. She is not cheap - she knows her value, but she is worth every cent. Now that I have seen the results, I think her prices are more than fair for the product she delivers. Joy is a joy. She even encouraged me in my personal life - PRICELESS

Peace of Mind
I think Ms. Robinson was sent to me from God. I had prayed and asked God for help for months before I looked on the Internet and her named popped up. The quality of my life, finances, and overall peace has been purposeful since I retained her. The phone calls stopped, I was able to make repairs on the house, and I no longer have a second mortgage that I shouldn't have had in the first place.
