Meet John Roxon

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.

"My experience at the Joye Law Firm was awesome!! John Roxon is a powerful attorney with a vast knowledge of law."
-David, Actual Client

What do you want a personal injury victim to come away with after the initial meeting with you?

When clients leave the initial meeting, I want them to be comfortable and reassured that their case is going to be processed in a timely manner. They know they’ll be notified of anything that happens in the case. They know that they can contact our office any time and will get a quick response.

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

It’s tough to go through the whole process but we know we have done our best when clients are pleased with the way we’ve treated them and their claim.
