Brent Arant is a personal injury lawyer who focuses primarily on auto wreck, tractor trailer, and catastrophic injury cases at Joye Law Firm.
While growing up on a dairy farm in Bowman, South Carolina, Brent, a fifth-generation farmer, learned the value of hard work, perseverance and dedication at a young age. These same traits, and his tenacity, have helped Brent recover millions of dollars for his clients in the span of just a few years.
When his grandfather died unexpectedly while Brent was in high school, his family faced a dilemma and turned to a lawyer for help with succession planning for the family farm. Brent saw the kind of assistance that a skilled attorney could provide to a family facing a difficult time. That formative experience inspired Brent to pursue a legal career and to use his skills to help others going through tough times.
“When I first meet with clients, I try to treat them just like any other member of my family,” he says. “I want them to know that I care, that I’m on their side, and that I’m just like them at the end of the day. I also want them to know they’ve met someone they can trust and somebody they can count on to fight for them.”
Brent is known for his legal skills and has extensive trial experience. In addition to trying wreck cases, Brent also handles some premises liability cases.
“Here at Joye Law Firm, we have strong lawyers and strong advocates with diverse backgrounds,” he says. “Our goal is to make a better product, and in the end, reach a better outcome.”
Choosing Joye Law Firm was definitely the best decision I made when handling my case. I would recommend them to anyone.
When I was in high school, my grandad unexpectedly passed away. We were faced with the dilemma of estate and succession planning for the farm. We had to hire a lawyer to handle taxes and estate planning, and to develop a strategy going forward. That was a dark period, but it inspired me to become a lawyer.
When clients leave my office, I want them to know that I care, that I’m on their side, that I’m just like them even though I have a lawyer hat on. I want them to know I’ll go to battle for them. I want them to know they’ve met someone they can trust and somebody they can count on to fight for them.
For me, the most satisfying aspect of being a personal injury lawyer is knowing I’ve tried my hardest on behalf of my clients. I let my clients know we have their back and are in their corner. At the end of the day, if I’ve done everything I can to help them, I’m satisfied.
Brent earned his undergraduate degree at Presbyterian College, where he successfully walked onto the football team and excelled as a student-athlete.
