Joye Law Firm has served clients since 1968. We know South Carolina law and understand the intricacies of practicing in our state and federal courts. We accept referrals in a wide range of personal injury and wrongful death cases. Our core practice areas include:

Please contact us to learn more about our background in these practice areas and our experience with many other types of cases. We will also review the specific facts and legal issues in the case that you would like to refer to us. If we cannot accept the case, we can certainly refer you to another law firm that may assist you.

At Joye Law Firm, we understand why it is often necessary to refer a case to another lawyer. You may be based in another state, or the client’s case may be outside of your practice areas. Timing, available resources and conflicts of interest can also be factors. We want to help you.

We will provide your client with the ethical, compassionate and results-driven representation that all of our clients can expect. We will also value the important role that you play as a referring attorney. We deeply appreciate the trust that law firms place in our law firm by referring a case to us. Thanks to that approach, we are proud to say that we have strong, long-term relationships with numerous law firms in South Carolina and across the country.

I had the pleasure of meeting Kenny Harrell at a legal seminar several years ago, and was very impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. I have referred several clients Ken and his firm, the Joye Law Firm. Ken has done an excellent job, and I will continue to recommend his services and to send clients to him.
