Joe McCoy

A proud alum of Newark High School, I played basketball for the Wildcats before playing college basketball for a small school in Pennsylvania: Grove City College. After college, I attended law school at Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas, where I began to learn the art of being a trial lawyer.

I am a trial lawyer at McCoy & McCoy, handling personal injury claims and adoptions. If you have been injured because of another’s carelessness or wrongful act, I'm eager to partner with you in seeking fair compensation—helping make our world a safer place for all of us. I also enjoy helping blended families formalize the parent-child relationship by assisting stepparents adopt their stepchildren when the biological parent is no longer in the picture.



I currently live in Newark, Ohio, with my wife and three children. I try to give back to the community by returning to help out with Newark Wildcat basketball practices, participating in my children’s school activities in the Newark City School system, and serving on several local boards, including The Licking County Board of Disabilities and Crime Stoppers of Licking County. I am also a member of the Newark branch of the Lion’s Club.
