I handle workers’ compensation cases for injured workers. I’m the head of the Workers’ Compensation Department. I’ll take any case that falls under the state Workers’ Compensation Act.
In this profession, there can be a lot of churning of people, where they end up as just a number. That is not the case with Joye Law Firm. By way of example, I had a case that just resolved where I sent my client out for a medical evaluation. The guy who examines her comes back and says, “Well, she could have x surgery.” But her treating doctor, who I know is good, says, “She could have that surgery, but it could be horrific in terms of the outcome. I wouldn’t do it.” A lot of lawyers would push her into that because the case would be worth more. But I said to her, “If you were my mother, I would tell you to not do the surgery, and here’s why….”
You can make a good living by doing the right thing in every case and every situation. And that’s the way I approach my law practice.
