Joanne Tinsley, Esquire began her legal career in 2003. Shortly she passed the bar exam, an acquaintance contacted Ms. Tinsley because her immigrant husband was encountering difficulties after applying for permanent resident status. The woman told Ms. Tinsley that she had been unable to find a local attorney who could help them. Ms. Tinsley was able to contact INS (now known as USCIS) and successfully resolve the issues that were preventing her client from obtaining his legal status. Ms. Tinsley enjoyed helping her client deal with immigration officials and knew that she had found her legal niche. Since then, Ms. Tinsley has assisted many men, women and families to obtain immigration benefits and realize their own versions of the American dream.
Joanne Tinsley, Esquire is a U.S. Army veteran (Military Intelligence) and a fifth generation Floridian. She is a graduate of the University of Central Florida and earned her Juris Doctor from Shepard Broad Law Center at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She is married to Steven R. Tinsley, Esquire and they have two dogs, Banjo and Bosun, and three cats, Vanity, Creole and Aretha.
