At the Joye Law Firm’s Myrtle Beach office, we handle personal injury and workers’ compensation cases. I represent clients in both of those areas.

When a client first comes in, I explain the law and the process. I explain to them what they can expect as far as contact with the office and what the case manager’s role is, and when negotiations can be started, which is not until their initial medical treatment ends.

At the Joye law firm, we help people in a difficult situation, and hopefully at the end of the process they are satisfied. They’ll know they have gotten a fair result.

After law school, John served as law clerk to the Honorable Graydon S. McKee Ill, the Chief Administrative Judge for the Seventh Judicial Circuit in Maryland.

In 2009, he joined Joye Law Firm and opened the firm’s Myrtle Beach office.
