Prompt and thorough. Thank you!
Mr Joyner was quick to respond to my initial request for consultation calling me back within 15 minutes on a Saturday. Upon being hired, he was quick to begin working with the court and thoroughly reviewed the information provided during discovery. He was prompt to provide updates and information as soon as he had something to pass along or discuss. While I'd prefer to have not required his services, I am satisfied with his performance.

Great lawyer does his job througholy
John did a great job representing me in my felony drug case. He was able to get some charges dismissed and my felony drug possession reduced to a misdemeanor.

Very impressed!
I found John with only three days until my first court appearance. He was available to take my case and went to court on my behalf twice. I never had to set foot in the courthouse. He explained things well to me and made time to answer all my questions by email. When the first DA didn't give him an offer we liked, he found one who did. He was very understanding of my situation and quite helpful. This was my first experience with anything like this, and John made it much less stressful for me than it otherwise would have been. I thank him from the bottom of my heart.
