Review Joyce Schwensen

  • Legal help to move small business corp. from MD to WA

    Joyce was personable, knowledgeable, and efficient. She answered all the questions my husband and I had about the process. She accessed resources and researched issues that were outside of her previous knowledge in order to give us the best advice. She reached out and spoke with our tax advisor to help us decide between different approaches we could have taken.We would definitely call Joyce for future legal needs and recommend her highly.

  • Unethical service. We feel cheated.

    It's unprofessional if a lawyer comes to a meeting / consultation unprepared, which was the case for our meeting. The most annoying part was that prior to the meeting she implied like there was a possible solution (however complicated or expensive) to our problem, which she would cover in our meeting. However, in the first 15 minutes it was evident she was aware of the fact that there was no solution and she made us get a paid consultation with her anyhow. For $280/hr with 1 hour minimum that's inexcusable.

    Joyce Stewart Schwensen’s response: “This client was contemplating an undertaking that was very risky and ill advised in an area that requires a high level of legal expertise. I explained the reasons that the client's plans were not likely to succeed and the major problems that could arise if the plans were pursued. I also suggested some alternative possibilities but the client did not accept any of them. I am sorry that she was unhappy with the outcome, but the advice I gave was sound and I believe saved the client from what could have been a very bad decision.”

    I went in for my appointment with Joyce, reviewed all the relevant information, and came up with a helpful, logical, effective plan. Joyce prepared the relevant document for me while I sat in her office and we completed the project in about one hour. I know that all legal issues are not as narrow in scope as mine, but I was still impressed at Joyce's clarity and efficiency in meeting my needs. Joyce was both personable and knowledgeable as we worked together. We quickly had a level of comfort together even as we moved through data gathering and substantive issues.

    I am extremely satisfied with the plan and action Joyce helped me arrive at. A great outcome!

    Joyce is an excellent attorney. She's smart and compassionate. I'd definitely recommend her for any LGBT family planning or any family law issues.

    We reviewed a title commitment and a bunch of questions about a forclosure property. I had recently interacted with another real estate law firm so I had the opportunity to compare. I went to Joyce when I was nickel and dimed by the other firm for a totally unimportant document and they weren't even helpful. Joyce by contrast was thorough, caring, honest and showed complete integrity and most importantly completely useful in helping me.

    I hired Joyce for a real estate matter after having a negative experience with a prior attorney.Not only was she efficient and very knowledgeable, she also exhibited a calm, genuine demeanor easing my concerns.When working with an attorney,you want someone that speaks your language and Joyce certainly fits the bill.

    I recieved some advice from Joyce on AVVO, and thought that her knowledge on my given topic was substantial enough to give her a call. It didnt take long to retain her as she obviously cared to help me. She is fast, efficiant, and overall very resonable. I used her services for a real estate matter, and I walked away with a very positive, good feeling. My only fault was she was definitly more worried about my case than I was :) (probably because I was stuck in a corner, and wanted to ignore my issue).

    We hired Joyce after a very bad experience with our first attorney. Joyce began correcting his mistakes immediately by filing the correct papers with the court, serving the proper parties and building our case to reverse the biggest inadequacy of the previous attorney--failing to provide the court with our evidence.

    Joyce properly filed the evidence, built a strong argument, always gave us many options to consider and thoroughly read and remembered the details of our case. Our situation was complicated and drawn out, but it was worth the struggle because we WON!
    I would recommend Joyce for issues dealing with trusts and real estate.

  • Real Estate Lease Review

    Joyce was responsive and informative in helping us wade through a 96 page lease. Without her help we'd never have known what was being said through all the legalese. As it turns out the money we spent for Joyce's research and expertise saved us an enormous sum of money.

    Joyce has fielded all of our legal questions as we've started and now grown our consulting business. She has always been extremely responsive no matter what question we're throwing her way.

    We feel very fortunate to have her looking out for us.
