Most recently, Joyce helped me navigate a complicated step-parent adoption. She handled the difficult and uncomfortable dynamics of the case with ease and understanding. Previously she had helped me form a limited liability company for my business, and though her passion is obviously adoption, she moves with clients effortlessly through a variety of law types. Her fees were fair, and I actually enjoyed my meetings with her. I recommend her without reservation.

Joyce helped me set up two different businesses (one LLC and one S-corp) and wrote up shareholder agreements for both. She is easy to work with and it was very clear that she always had my best interests in mind when writing the agreements.

We used Joyce for the adoption of our little girl. She came highly recommended from our agency and we were impressed with her the first moment we spoke to her. We were from out of state and she took the time to explain every detail of the process to us. When we hit a paperwork glitch at the hospital she drove down to speak to the individuals in charge on a Saturday and it was a holiday weekend. She is a great attorney.

Joyce is a very experienced attorney on adoption, real estate, wills & probate, and business law issues. If you want someone with the knowledge and experience of a big downtown law firm attorney, but you also want someone who will give you the personal attention you deserve, I recommend Joyce.
