Joyce advises clients on family law, which includes divorce, child custody, access and guardianship, child and spousal support, property division, pre-nuptial or cohabitation and separation agreements.
Joyce is also experienced on business law matters, and can assist clients on the sale and purchase of businesses, corporate governance, shareholders’ agreements and commercial leases as well as the purchase and sale of commercial and residential real estate.
Joyce works with clients in their personal and estate planning to ensure that the clients’ succession plans are carried out to their wishes and eventually implemented smoothly in accordance to their objectives.
