About Joy:

Joy Degenhart was born and raised in El Paso.  After high school, she attended the Texas Tech University in Lubbock where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies.  She went on to attend law school in Virginia Beach, Virginia where she received her Doctor of Jurisprudence from Regent University School of Law.

Joy’s passion in family law is in part derived from her love of families and her desire to help them through the hurdles and challenges of family law cases.  Joy’s approach to practicing family law has been shaped by her own family and her faith. When Joy is not in the office, she is with her family finding new ways to enjoy the beauty that the El Paso desert has to offer.

Joy joined the firm in 2017 after practicing with another local family law firm. Joy is happy to be a part of the team and is thankful for the opportunity to focus primarily on family law cases.

Legal matters are very stressful. Hiring an attorney shouldn't be.
