As a litigator, Joy Anderson aims to resolve cases as efficiently as possible in the way that best meets each of her client’s unique needs, whether that may be resolving a case through settlement or continuing through trial. Her litigation practice focuses mainly on trust and estate clients, but also includes outside litigation matters such as:

  • Disputes between members of close corporations (family businesses)
  • Contract disputes
  • Trademark and false advertising claims
  • Negligent supervision and retention claims against employers
  • Real estate disputes

The pressure of litigation can be difficult financially, emotionally, and time-consuming for clients. Joy aims to provide not only legal support, but support in understanding and managing the additional pressures that litigation brings. To lessen these pressures, clients can be assured that Joy’s work begins long outside the courtroom—as a past reporter, Joy integrates her journalistic tenacity to marshal evidence and case law, as well as form creative arguments and draft clear, strong briefs prior to trial. Her dual preparation has resulted in client successes in the following industries:

  • Health care
  • Trust companies
  • Food/food supplements
  • Financial institutions
  • Landlord/tenant disputes
  • Manufacturing

Joy is committed to understanding client goals and ensuring her strategy accomplishes clients’ goals as best as possible, including those who cannot otherwise afford to access the legal system. As co-chair of Gray Plant Mooty’s pro bono committee, she has assisted clients with asylum cases and unfair eviction claims while volunteering as a lawyer for the Advocates of Human Rights and the Fund for Legal Aid's One Hour of Sharing Campaign.
