  • John Joseph Joyce III

    Carey and I have been opposite side of quite a few criminal matters. He has a great knowledge of the criminal rules and statutes and is very easy to work with. He has worked on both sides of the fence as both a defense attorney and an ASA, so he has a lot of perspective when handling a criminal case. In every case we've had together, Carey is always very professional and ethical.
