Attorney Profile

Joy P. Easley has called Brunswick County, North Carolina, her home since 1975 and she is passionate about providing skilled representation to residents and visitors in need of sound legal counsel.
Prior to practicing law, Joy worked for the Town of Oak Island for twenty years, first as an assistant building inspector and then as a tax collector. It was the knowledge gained in these careers, coupled with a strong desire to learn and a love for community that led Joy to law school in 2006 after obtaining her Bachelor of Science Degree in Management and Organizational Development and her Masters of Business Administration. In her law career, she has found her true passion in the practice of law and and the opportunity it affords her to help others. 
When she isn't in the courtroom fighting for your rights or in the office preparing her case load, she enjoys spending quality time with her family, which includes 4 grandchildren, and taking in the natural beauty of our area with long walks on the beach.
