Joy Williams


Joy Williams (she/her/hers) is Paralegal, with more than 20 years of civil litigation experience working for long-established law firms.  She has assisted through all aspects of a case, including large-scale document production, pre-litigation preparation, in-courtroom trial support, and appellate filings.  While most of her experience has been in civil litigation at the state and district court level, she also has substantial experience in Corporate Governance and Insurance.  She recently assisted on a pro bono matter securing the release of a man wrongfully imprisoned from an 18-year-old conviction.  Subsequently, she knew she wanted to continue a career narrowing the access to justice gap, which is what drew her to law initially, and ultimately to the Lawyering Project.  Joy holds a Bachelor of Science in Sociology from Chestnut Hill College, with a minor in Criminal Justice.  She earned an Associate’s Degree from Saint Joseph’s University in Paralegal Studies.
