Work Area:

Family Law


Joanna qualified as a Solicitor in 2008. Joanna deals with a wide range of family issues, including separation and divorce and the financial matters arising from this as well as arrangements for children. Joanna also prepares pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements and has acted for grandparents in respect of children matters. She has a particular interest in disputes relating to children and cohabitation matters. Joanna is a trained Collaborative Lawyer which means she also acts for clients who choose to participate in the Collaborative Law process whereby the parties concerned commit to resolving financial matters and arrangements for children on divorce without going to Court


Member of Resolution, Collaborative Lawyer

Interesting Cases:

Cases with a high net worth and complex financial issues.  Injunctions.

Personal Mission Statement:

I appreciate the emotional and practical difficulties that follow the breakdown of a relationship and the uncertainties that these changes can bring. With this in mind, I am committed to guiding my clients through the legal process every step of the way and I strive to achieve the best and most suitable solution in all cases.

I recognise that each set of circumstances is different and as such I aim to provide a personal service that is tailored to meet the needs of each client.

What my clients have said about me:

“Thank you for your help and support, I can see light at the end of the tunnel”.

 “From our very first meeting I felt that Joanna was fully on my side and prepared to take the necessary action to ensure a fair settlement was reached, within the constraints of what is dictated by law.  She has always given a balanced view and excellent advice which I am certain contributed greatly in achieving the final outcome of my divorce settlement”.

“Working with Joanna during what has been a very difficult and stressful period of my life made the whole situation more bearable and I am very grateful for her support”.
