Louisiana personal injury trial lawyer Joseph Joy attended Mississippi State University on a Southeastern Conference football scholarship and received another scholarship to attend Loyola Law School in New Orleans. During the summers of high school and college, Joseph Joy worked as a technician on various fixed offshore oil platforms and land rigs. He also worked as a deck hand aboard a 160-foot offshore supply boat. As a result, Joseph Joy has first-hand experience of the hazardous conditions that contribute to personal injury accidents. He also has a good understanding of why accidents happen and who is liable.

In 1980, Mr. Joy made legal history in Louisiana in a back injury case when he proved that 135 pounds was too heavy for a seaman to handle without assistance. This was the first case of its kind where the singular theory of recovery for the injured worker was that 135 pounds was too heavy for a Jones act seaman to handle alone.
