Best Decision We Ever Made
I was injured two years ago in an accident that in no way was my fault. I was taken to the ER and immediately told I would need surgery. I didn’t have health insurance at the time and was worried about how I was going to pay for all of these unexpected medical expenses. During my hospitalization my husband contacted the Joye Law Firm. One of the best decisions we ever made! From the very start the truck company, driver, and insurance company involved claimed that even though a part of their vehicle had fallen off and hit me, it was not their fault. They denied any wrong doing and did not feel that they should be in any way responsible for me or my medical costs. It was a fight right from the beginning and not something myself, nor my husband, would have been able to handle on our own. We were faced with every hurdle you could possibly imagine: evidence getting thrown away, records and logs not being made available, doctors stating I was fine despite still suffering a broken bone that nobody thought needed to fixed. Seriously, you name it and it was an issue for us. The Joye Law Firm was there with us every single step of the way! They constantly were looking and fighting for what was in my best interest. Without their help my medical bills would have not been covered and I would be in serious financial distress, I would still be in need of a second surgery (in pain everyday as a result), and a host of issues I’d still be facing; in other words, I’d be in a completely different situation then I am in right now. I know for a fact that it was only with the help of Mr. Joye and his law firm that I was able to get the second surgery I needed, my medical bills got covered, and my case was handled in the manner it should have been. This was definitely not something we could have done on our own and are so thankful we choice Joye to represent us.

Personable and gives great advice
I thought that I could deal directly with the insurance company regarding my accident that caused injuries. My brother who is in insurance told me to hire a good lawyer to represent me. This occured after being frustrated with the other persons insurance adjuster. I couldn't have found a better one in Mark Joye. He was kind, personable and offered great advice. He listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. His first concern to get me the medical treatments to help me get better. Which I definitely appreciated. Patience is a virtue and after 3 1/2 years I finally have recieved an amicable resolution. I truly appreciated and am thankful for Mark Joye and his team Alice and Shaun's efforts. I would definitely recommend Joye law firm to anyone that asks.

Wonderful, saved our family!
We were hit by a drunk driver around 2011 and my husband sustained injuries that lead to a knee surgery. Long story short, the insurance company was refusing to pay for his surgery. Mark Joye fought really hard for us to get our fair shake and to have our medical bills and damages paid I think also lost wages because my husband is the sole breadwinner in our family and he had to stay out of work for almost a month. Mr. Joye did not settle for whatever the insurance company would offer and fought tooth and nail to get us what was deserved. In the end the case went to trial and although we did not win our case (through NO fault of mr. Joye) we left feeling good because we knew that our lawyer did everything that was humanly possible to get us taken care of. After the trial, we had hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt because of the surgery and medical bills, we were facing bankruptcy with a new child and it wouldn't have 100% ruined our marriage and our lives. However, Mr. Joye kept fighting for us after the trial was over and got our bills Drastically reduced to only a few thousand dollars ( down from over $130,000). Mr. Joye really helped our family by seeing that my husband was able to get the medical care that he needed and that the drunk driver and the insurance company were held accountable. Without him my husband would have been facing disability and unemployment and we would've been facing poverty. Even if my husband was able to get the medical care he required (which would've been almost impossible without insurance as this was before the affordable healthcare act) we would have been facing certain financial ruin that would have followed us for our entire lives. Mr. Joye and his staff stayed with us, kept us in the loop, and consulted with us regularly and consistently. Everything was explained honestly, thoroughly and accurately and we were left to make final decisions on things ourselves and playing an active role in this process. Mr. Joye's offices are very nice, clean orderly, and the staff is exceptionally professional. Everyone you meet in the building is friendly and greets you in the halls and while you may be facing intimidating circumstances, they make you feel comfortable and well taken care of. If we ever need a lawyer for something like this again we will immediately seek him out and we recommend him to everyone that we can. He and his associates saw us through a very difficult, long process and we can never be more thankful to them. As a result of our hardwork, my husband and myself and start our life as a little family with our son without a mountain of debt and disability looming over our heads. We are forever grateful.
