"In the past year, I have thought of you often...with gratitude. I felt that your advice was always absolutely fair and balanced. I felt that you were so clear and transparent - and so full of compassion.
Bottom line - you met me when I was as stressed and as unhappy as I’ve ever been. A year or so later, I find myself happy and relaxed about my future. You had a big part in that and I thank you.
I would happily be a reference for you — and for the mediation process.
Joy, you are more than a lawyer. You are a real healer."
"Finding Joy was just that, finding joy during an otherwise painful and complicated time. I shudder to think of the outcome if I handled my divorce any other way. Joy’s respect and understanding for both parties was palpable and unwavering.
Divorce can be demoralizing, overwhelming, and downright confusing, but these issues were minimized thanks to her professionalism and devotion. From day one, Joy explained what we could expect from each meeting, and as a result, we came prepared and worked through the process with ease. Joy is patient yet persistent, meticulous yet calm. She has the ability to balance the emotions in the room, and she made sure we didn't lose focus.
Joy also never lost sight of the most important thing – the children. As a mediator, Joy is incredibly impartial, but I still had the sense she was holding my hand through the entire process."
