Foreclosure/fire/note sale
We hired Joyce for a very unique foreclosure case that involved multiple layers of complexity. Joyce's hard work and thoroughness shined through and affected everyone involved with this case. The judge, the cellar, the buyer, the lender. Her ability to know the details and give us options was an integral part to this case. From the start, I knew we were in good hands. In the end, she was able to accomplish a win-win-win scenario for everyone involved. I would definitely use her again and look forward to working with her again.

Out of state assistance!
I live out of state. As an heir of a deceased relative, I received documents pertaining to foreclosure of the property of the 'deceased'. One document included monetary information and noted that the defendants must file 'an appearance'. I did not understand all of terminology. And I was concerned about my liability. I attempted to contact the lawyers of the plaintiff. (no response) I then called the circuit court for information. They could only send a list of attorney's whom handle that type of law. I contacted Joyce and she spent quite an amount of time answering my questions. She did not ask for a fee! I did not take any immediate action. But, after a few weeks, I wanted closure and wanted to stop my thinking about any personal liability. I contacted Joyce; once again. She remembered the initial consultation and was willing to assist me. Recovering from surgery she kept in contact and wanted to assist me when she returned. After researching the court documents, she asked to talk with the other heir; since he and I rarely communicated. And I was not totally aware of his dealings with the plaintiff. He also was the 'executor' and could fill in all the details which Joyce needed to be aware. Joyce helped me to understand the process and put my concerns to rest. If I need further assistance with this case, she is there for me. Thank you, Joyce. Phil

Top-notch counsel
Besides being highly professional and just a great person, Joyce is a skilled and trusted counselor. She knows her stuff (I consulted her on an issue that spanned multiple areas of the law, including one of her areas of expertise, real estate), and she produces insightful and creative solutions. I will definitely turn to her for any future legal needs where she may be able to help.

Atty Wixson is a lawyer that displays excellence in every aspect of your legal transactions. She is extremely professional, but no push over. She will not let the opposing team take advantage of her client. I was extremely happy that she uncovered areas where the other side tried to 'pull one over on me'. With her knowledge and tenacity, I am certain that I 'won'.
