Meet Chris McCool

I handle a lot of medical malpractice and nursing home abuse cases, premises liability cases and cases involving disputed insurance contracts.

The people who come to Joye Law Firm are very kind and good people. The least we can do is be upfront and honest with them. We are candid with people about whether they need an attorney. In some cases, they just need a helping hand and can handle the situation on their own with a little guidance.

We cannot ever guarantee a client a certain outcome. But we guarantee that the other side will not outwork us. Through hard work and determination, the lawyers at Joye Law Firm most of the time can get a good outcome for a client.

What Our Clients Say About Chris...

"Without Chris, I don't know where I would be or what my family would do. He has been with us throughout. At my bedside. With my family during surgeries. Contacting doctors to help me get better. Chris was just my lawyer – now, he's my friend."

- Tommy, Actual Client

What is the most satisfying aspect of being a personal injury lawyer?

What I like about doing this job is helping injured people who sometimes have lost hope. People come to Joye Law Firm who have been treated badly by an insurance company and by someone else. They are uncertain if anything can be done to help them. That is when I like to step in and offer to help them, if possible. Through hard work and research and being an advocate, most of the time we can achieve a positive outcome for that person and restore their hope.
