V. Joy Edwards is the Managing Partner and Owner of The Edwards Law Group. From a young age, Ms. Edwards had the drive and desire to contribute her help to others in the legal arena. Ms. Edwards attended high school at Mount Alvernia High School in Jamaica where she was an avid member of the debate team. Her team made it to the National Competition in 1988 and placed second nationwide. Ms. Edwards received her Bachelor of Arts from Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama in 1996, where she graduated as a Pre-Law Major and a Political Science Minor. After college, Ms. Edwards continued on her path to become an attorney by attending Rutgers University – School of Law in Camden, New Jersey, where she graduated with her Juris Doctorate in 1999.

After graduating from Law School, Ms. Edwards was employed at a firm in Marietta, Georgia practicing Family Law. Ms. Edwards quickly fell in love with the field and has since dedicated her professional career obtaining the skills and knowledge necessary to best represent her clients in every aspect of their case.

Ms. Edwards is a well known experienced Atlanta divorce attorney and an excellent litigator.

Ms. Edwards spent three years as the Staff Attorney for two judges in the State Court of Cobb County.

Thorough, Professional and Conscientious
Ms. Edwards and her staff are excellent, their attention to detail and work ethic are to be commended. She did so much more than our previous lawyer and was able to get a legal matter that had been hanging on for years resolved quickly. I highly recommend.

Awesome service & results!!!
Joy is amazing. She always listened to me to understand what my needs were and she did a superior job executing my request. Although I just met Joy, she managed my case like she was a close family friend who sincerely had my best interest at heart. During the trial she was not thrown off by the other party's spontaneous attempts to sneak in invalid information. She even fought for me all the way to the end when the Judge was giving the decision; she recommended an alternate proposal which would benefit me and the Judge accepted. I am so glad she knew what she was doing. From the first conversation with Joy I felt confident in her ability to handle my case and from the day I hired her I never worried again about my case. I would highly recommend Joy and she will handle all of my family matters.

Great Attorney
Ms. Edwards was a great attorney. She responded to my needs and could answer my questions. Her fees were very reasonable. She cared about the outcome of my case and was focused on what was best for my children and me.

DO NOT US THI ATTORNEY. She cost me to miss my child custody hearing by not notifying me of my child custody hearing.
This attorney, took $4900 from me to do nothing but cost me my sons paternity time to be thwarted by not giving me notice that I had a child custody hearing. She was unprepared in a TPO order prior and would not assert herself to a lying & vindictive wife. Today I’m having to get another attorney to clean up her mess. She dismissed herself from my case without advising me of my child custody case court date. As a result I haven’t seen my son in almost 8 months. Now I have to fork out another $2500.00 for another attorney. Thanks Joyce for a splendid job that you managed to foul up. GREAT JOB!
