About Joyce

Learn Joyce’s areas of practice.

I handle workers' compensation, automobile accidents, personal injury, medical malpractice, criminal defense, traffic, and DUI/DWI cases.  As a former prosecutor and former insurance defense attorney, I was able to gain a unique perspective of how the other side operates in a case.  I bring those experiences to the table when I represent clients with criminal, DUI, or traffic charges or clients who have sustained injuries as a result of another's negligence. 

I am also a trained mediator.  This experience allows me to better represent clients who are ordered to participate in mediation.  It also allows me to evaluate a potential case and recognize when litigation is not the best course of action for a client.

very very impressed,
I recently had a conversation with Ms Jones, look I wouldn't call myself the brightest but I know a thing or two and from that conversation alone, I would wholeheartedly recommend Ms Jones, I was left in awe at her ability to comprehend my particular case. Her intelligence jumped right out of the phone, she is thus far and by far the brightest attorney I have encountered and I have been injured for going on 3 years so one can only imagine the multitude of lawyers I had to speak with. Trust me there are a lot of lawyers out there but Ms Jones stands out, you would do yourself a disservice not to at least talk to her . She is hands down the best attorney I have had to deal with.

Amazing Advocate
I contacted Ms. Jones to help me during the most unfortunate circumstances pertaining to an assault on my special-needs adult child. Prior to speaking with her, I was very worried that I would not be able to find a lawyer who would be tough, but also patient enough to work with our family. Our circumstances were unique because I was unsure what to do and because, like any mom, I was very distraught over what happened. Added to that, is the fact that my son is non-verbal and only has limited sign-language skills. As soon as I spoke with Ms. Jones, she put me at ease. It was clear in the first ten minutes of talking to her that she understood our circumstances and knew what needed to be done. She was an amazing advocate for my son and family, and got immediate results. She was very professional and took the time to listen to me and to explain what was going on.

Knowledgeable, Personable, An All-Around Fantastic Attorney
I hired Ms. Jones to represent my minor child and I in a personal injury/ auto accident. From our first conversation, I knew she had an intelligence like no other. She is so pleasant and her sense of humor really lightened the mood on an otherwise stressful situation. She took ample time to explain how she could best achieve a positive outcome for me, and what needed to be done with each step to make that happen. She went to bat for me when the other driver's insurance company low-balled estimates for repairing my vehicle damage. She helped take care of my PIP claim and reassured me that there were laws in place to protect me from increased insurance rates from filing a PIP claim. She helped me coordinate my repairs and our medical care. She invested extra time to make certain she was fully versed in up-to-date medical literature regarding our diagnoses/ injuries to better assist us with consideration of potential future medical care. She was able to achieve outstanding results for our family through settlement and we cannot thank her enough for all she did for us!!!! I have recommended her to a lot of people, and a friend of mine retained her for help in a traffic court matter. I accompanied my friend to court and was able to see Ms. Jones in action in several cases that day, including a few criminal cases. She has a presence about her that really controls the courtroom. Her techniques are intriguing, and she is both professional and effective. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND MS. JONES TO ANYONE SEEKING A CHANGE FROM THE NORM -- A "TRULY" GOOD ATTORNEY!!!

Ms. Jones was truly amazing in handling every detail of my case. Her knowledge about my case was extremely comforting, and I couldn't ask for more communication from her. When I called with a question her quick response was impressive. I feel very lucky to have had Ms. Jones represent me.

Wonderful attorney
Ms. Jones represented me on a breach of contract case and wiped the floor with the other side. She explained the legal system to me and saved me a lot of money.

What a waste of time!
After initial consultation you might say that she dropped off the face of the earth!!! I sent emails, pictures, a note telling her I didn't have access to a computer, (using phone) several other questions. After weeks of calls i finally got in touch with her and excuse #1 was her phone was down and was waiting for my info to load, OK. Next was my paperwork was put into another person's folder who had a similar case. Surely you could come up with something better than that. And #3 I called May 1st and she said she would call me right back. Not a word. Not what I call professional at all.

Workers compensation Attorney | Mar 27
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I wholeheartedly endorse Joyce Jones to anyone seeking smart, thorough, and aggressive representation. Joyce knows the law and gives her clients the individualized attention their cases deserve. This however, can be said about a lot of lawyers. What sets Joyce apart is compassion. She understands that her clients are people who have lives and families; they are not just another file to her. This is an important quality to find in any lawyer, but particularly in a Workers' Compensation lawyer. Without exceptional representation, an on-the-job injury can turn an injured worker’s life upside down very quickly. Joyce is a skillful advocate and obtains great results for her clients."
Personal injury Attorney | Mar 27
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I met with Ms. Jones while working as an attorney at Janet, Jenner & Suggs. She was the team leader on a mass tort at the time, and I knew her to be an excellent role model and mentor for the attorneys who worked with her. She gave clear direction and constructive feedback, and the clients' best interests guided all of her work. I admired most her fearlessness."

Medical malpractice Attorney | Mar 17
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Joyce and I represented separate groups of victims in the St. Joseph coronary stent litigation, a complex project that lasted over 4 years, including numerous state cases, and a federal class action. There were many complex legal questions such as hospital insurance coverage, charitable immunity, and a multitude of negligent and intentional tort theories. She and I became close allies due to her excellent knowledge of the law, her fighting spirit in the face of contentious discovery proceedings, her ability to manage numerous cases simultaneously, and her wonderful personality that made it a pleasure to work together collaboratively. We had many spirited debates on the law, and she was always well prepared and ready for any challenge. She is an attorney I call when I need someone I trust to help solve difficult legal problems. I give her my highest recommendation as a lawyer who truly cares about her clients and one who possesses the talent and dedication to win cases."
