Outstanding service.
I worked with Ms. Thomas through difficult employment related contract negotiations, and felt she provided excellent counsel. She made herself as available as possible, in person, by email, or by phone. She was able to provide informed guidance on the "big picture," and timely, targeted responses on individual points in contract negotiations. She allowed me as a client significant leeway as to whether I took the lead in negotiations, or she did, which was very useful for keeping costs contained. I felt she helped me attain the best agreement possible under the specific circumstances. After this matter was resolved, I elected to seek her help again, for review of an employment agreement at a new employer. On the personal side, she is a pleasure to work with! Joyce conveys a strong sense of caring in her work, and she will know you as a person to the extent you wish, not just as an interesting case she elected to take on. Her accomplishments and contributions to society at large are not even mentioned by her, but when you research her, you will see the further testimony to her intellignence and strength of her character in supporting just causes.

Client Review
I had a problem with a previous employer and a boss with a well documented history of discriminatory behavior. Joyce was recommended to me by an associate and I'm very grateful. She's a very honest and detailed attorney who knows labor law from A to Z and she doesn't miss any details. She's is an outstanding advisor/counselor and genuinely cares about her clients and social injustice. I couldn't recommend her highly enough.
