Mr. Joyce looks at litigation from an economic perspective and works diligently to provide highly effective representation on a cost/benefit basis.  Litigating the highly personal and stressful issues raised in Family Law can take a toll on clients and Mr. Joyce works to ensure that clients have a clear understanding of their rights, their obligations and the inherent risks involved in litigation.  His approach consists of measuring the client’s goals and likelihood of success against the substantial litigation cost that will be required to achieve those goals to reach a cost effective resolution.
